The successful Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is available for free on Steam and PlayStation 4 from today, November 11, to Sunday, November 13.
For a limited period of time, owners of a Steam account, or a PlayStation 4 can download Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege in its entirety for free. Players will be able to try out the game without limitations until the campaign ends on November 13. In addition, the title was given a 50% discount on both platforms until Monday, November 14.
The event is being held in celebration of the upcoming free expansion, Operation Red Crow, to be released on Thursday, November 17. The update will take players to Japan to experience the new Skyscraper map, with characters Yumiko Imagawa and Masaru Enatsu–both part of the Japanese S.A.T., short for Special Assault Team–as newly added assets of Team Rainbow. Those who have vertigo may want to stay away from the map, because as the name implies, the mission will take place atop a skyscraper on a mansion themed after traditional Japanese architecture.
Operation Red Crow is the fourth free map released for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege since its launch, with operations Black Ice, Dust Line, and Skull Rain before it. The game was one of the most anticipated titles of 2015, coming out right before Christmas of the same year to a positive reception.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is available for Windows PC through Steam, Origin, and Uplay, as well as the PlayStation 4 and XBox One consoles. The free weekend and discount of 50% are currently only available on Steam and the PlayStation Network–Sony’s online store for its PlayStation platforms–until November 13 and 14 respectively, with the new expansion dropping on November 17.
