Rainbow Six Siege free-to-play weekend now live

Another few days of flash-bangin’ action

Stressful week? Fancy increasing the tension sevenfold? Then maybe you should dive into twitchy online shooter Rainbow Six Siege, which is free to play on all platforms this weekend.

From today until Sunday, June 14, PS4, PC, and Xbox One users can test their mettle in Ubisoft’s popular multiplayer title, which sees squads of highly trained specialists engage in nervous, every motion counts showdowns. The free trial includes access to all modes, maps, and Siege’s 20 “legacy” operators, so you can keep your mitts off my gal N0kk.

If you decide to kick down the barricade on a full purchase, then Rainbow Six Siege is currently enjoying a discounted price in all of its retail forms. There are savings to be made whether you just want the base title right through the Deluxe, Gold, and Ultimate editions. Any progress from the weekend will be carried over into the purchase.

That next major Siege event is the arrival of Year 4’s second season, Operation Steel Wave. This event brings with it a reworked House map, as well as two new operators in the form of Norwegian breacher Ace, and South African tracking specialist Melusi. Drone-lovin’ operator Echo will also be receiving a ninja-themed Elite Skin. Operation Steel Wave is expected to go live on the main server very soon. 

Rainbow Six Siege is available now on PS4, PC, and Xbox One.
