Join the destruction-fueled firefights of Rainbow Six Siege for free this weekend with Xbox Live Gold. Peeking around a corner to pick off your enemy is satisfying, but blasting through the floor to take them down from above because you found their hiding spot on your drone camera? That’s outwitting and outplaying your opponent in true Siege style. The free weekend begins today and runs through Tuesday, June 10 at 12:59 a.m. PDT. To get started, download Rainbow Six Siege from the Microsoft Store and get ready to put your own clever tactics and quick reflexes to the test. And if you want to keep the action going after June 10, you can purchase Rainbow Six Siege for up to 70% off to continue your progression.
During the free weekend, you’ll be able to play every mode that Siege offers, including the newcomer playlist, where you can learn the multiplayer ropes by playing online with other relatively new players. The playlist is one of several new features the Rainbow Six Siege team have added to make the game more welcoming and accessible, without sacrificing any of the tension and lethality that make it so thrilling. One of the latest additions is Reverse Friendly Fire, designed to punish players for intentionally killing their teammates while still acknowledging that, in the heat of battle, accidents happen.
The free weekend comes at the perfect time to help you prepare for the launch of Operation Phantom Sight, which will introduce two new Operators with unique gadgets to shake up the competitive scene. Warden, a new Defender, is equipped with Glance Smart Glasses, which allow him to resist the effects of flashbangs and see through smokescreens. Nøkk, a new Attacker, uses her HEL Presence Reduction gadget to conceal herself from camera feeds and silence her footsteps. When used wisely and in coordination with your teammates, every Operator gadget can make a big impact on the match. Warden and Nøkk, along with a significant rework of the Kafe Dostoyevsky map, will hit Rainbow Six Siege when Operation Phantom Sight launches soon on Xbox One.
Rainbow Six Siege will be on sale for up to 70% off, during the free weekend, and any progress you make will carry over to the full version of the game if you decide to purchase it. Now get out there and flex your skills and strategic thinking with Rainbow Six Siege.
