Video game Company Ubisoft's "Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege" is one of the successful multiplayer shooters game released last year, in 2015. Recently, Ubisoft stated that they will no longer sell obligatory downloadable content maps for the game, for they are now willing to give all the new maps away for free, so that the players will enjoy the game more.

"The key is if it's not adding something on top of the actual experience of the game, then it is no good," said the Vice President of Ubisoft's live operations, Anne Blondel-Jouin during an interview, as stated by Digital Trends. "Because you'll be asking for more money for the wrong reasons. Also, if the content is compulsory for gamers, it's no good as well."

"It wouldn't work if it was about making it compulsory for gamers," commented by Blondel-Jouin, according to Forbes. "No more DLC that you have to buy if you want to have the full experience. You have the game, and if you want to expand it - depending on how you want to experience the game - you're free to buy it, or not."

Though the new maps and modes are free, the weapon skins will still be bought through microtransactions. The characters can be bought with real money or players can acquire them by playing. "It is just an extra piece of revenue for us, which comes from gamers being happy. If gamers we not happy, we would not ask for that extra money," said Blondel-Jouin.

Aside from Ubisoft's Rainbow Six Siege, Microsoft Studios' popular first person shooter game, "Halo 5: Guardians" also did the same thing. It is still not clear if Ubisoft will do the same procedure to its other games. In Ubisoft's other game, "Tom Clancy's The Division", recently added new content such as Incursions, HVTs and gear sets which are included in the updates, though there are still paid downloadable content.
