This time around the cult survival horror classic is making a return in Ubisoft's tactical shooter, Rainbow Six: Siege.
Joining the Rainbow Six: Siege roster of characters (as a skin) is the legendary Resident Evil protagonist, Leon Scott Kennedy, one of the few known survivors of the 1998 Raccoon City destruction incident (Resident Evil 2).
Leon is one of the most iconic and most recognizable Resident Evil characters, with a key role throughout the series. He was the face of the Resident Evil franchise prior to Capcom creating Ethan Winters for Resident Evil 7 and Resident Evil Village.
Although we haven't seen him in a while in his main franchise, at least you will now have a chance to play as him in Rainbow Six Siege.

Olivier "Lion" Flament is finally getting his Elite Set, inspired by the Resident Evil franchise.
Lion Elite Set includes the following items:
- The “Leon S. Kennedy” Lion Elite Skin uniform

The "Leon S. Kennedy" Lion Elite Set price and release date
The "Leon S. Kennedy" Lion Elite Set is available now and it can be purchased for 1800 Credits, which is somewhere around $15 USD, but you will need to purchase a 2670 R6 Credits pack as a minimum, priced at $19.99 USD.
