Rainbow Six Siege is going free to play this weekend

It may be getting a little long in the tooth, but Rainbow Six Siege continues to see new content additions Just ahead of its next content drop, dubbed "Operation White Noise," (opens in new tab) Rainbow Six Siege is going free to play for the weekend to give Xbox One, PS4, and PC gamers who haven't tried it yet a chance to dive into the game.

During the free play weekend, all of the game's maps and modes will be available to play, so you'll be able to work towards unlocking the various operators that are available. As usual with these events, you'll also be able to carry over your progress from the free weekend to the full game if you decide to buy it afterward.

Speaking of which, Rainbow Six Siege will be on sale at a 50 percent discount for the duration of the free play event. That brings the base price down to $24.99 on Xbox One, which isn't too shabby for a two-year-old game that's still picking up new content. Keep in mind that Xbox One players will have to be subscribed to Xbox Live to take part.

Xbox gamers will be able to jump in from 11 p.m. PT on November 15 through 11 p.m. PT on November 19. PC gamers, on the other hand, will be able to play from 9 a.m. PT on November 16 through 12 p.m. PT on November 19. For more, check out our Rainbow Six Siege review.

  • Great game. I am just amazingly bad at it 😝
  • No one plays it anymore on PC so if you enjoy queueing for long periods of time for a PVE round you have no control what type then enjoy, but I gladly removed game and the 40GB the game took up.
  • Wrong. That's because barely anyone plays PvE specifically. PC is more competitive so everyone plays PvP. Do some research and don't give out misinformation.
  • A brilliant game that a lot of gamers wrote off. Amongst a packed FPS release period it held its own and grew in popularity and become an esport hit as well. I suspect its popularity has even surprised Ubisoft but the developers have continued to churn out worthwhile free content and done it in a way that doesn't divide the community - EA and Activision could do well to take note.
  • Well said.
  • It's so sad game i dont see this game in xbox one x support...
  • If you turn off V-sync in terrorist hunt, you get 60 FPS on the One X rather than 30.
  • Such a great game. So unique, it's only fps I've played in last 16 years
