Ubisoft has announced that Rainbow Six Siege will be playable for free this weekend on Xbox One and PC via Steam and Uplay. The free weekend began on Thursday 28 July at 9AM PT, and will finish on Sunday July 31 at 11:59PM PT.
Rainbow Six Siege is currently 50% off on Steam, Uplay and Xbox One to coincide with the free weekend. The sale ends on August 2 on Steam, but goes “all week” (Xbox Wire) on Xbox One. It’s unclear how long the Uplay sale lasts for.
Also happening in Rainbow Six Siege this weekend is the Final of Season 2 of the Xbox Pro League, featuring a $75,000 prize pool. The Final will be streamed live on Twitch from Saturday July 30 at 1PM PST. The livestream will include a full reveal of Operation Skull Rain, the upcoming downloadable content which will be available on August 2 to Season Pass holders.
Rainbow Six Siege was released last year. In our review, we said we enjoyed the more tactical nature of the game compared to other shooters.
