Rainbow Six Siege is half price to buy and free to try this weekend, new operators revealed

Operator Hibana

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege is currently free-to-play on PC, and will remain so until Sunday afternoon. If you like what you play, you can buy it permanently for half price.

“Fraught with tension and danger”, Rainbow Six: Siege made our list of the best shooters on PC.

The free weekend has already begun, running from noon UK time yesterday and finishing at 3pm on Sunday, November 13th.

The promotion coincides with the official reveal of Siege’s latest DLC, Operation Red Crow, which will be unveiled on Twitch over the next couple of days.

The Siege website has been updated with teasers of the two new operators that will be added in Operation Red Crow. Recruited to Rainbow from Japan’s Special Assault Team (SAT) – the Japanese police’s counter-terrorism unit – they are named Echo and Hibana.

Echo appears to be a technological expert of some kind, while Hibana – the first female Attack operator post-launch – is an expert in close-quarters combat who can attach flamethrowing mines to surfaces. If you want to know more, you’ll have to wait for the reveal.

After three DLCs, and with a fourth imminent, Rainbow Six Siege is currently full of content. Operation Red Crow is the last piece of DLC on its current season pass. A second year’s worth of content has not been officially confirmed, but is rumoured.

Here’s the Rainbow Six Siege Steam page. With the half-price discount, a purchase will cost £14.99 UK or $24.99 US.
