November 10, 2016Written by Jason Dunning

Update: The Rainbow Six Siege free weekend is now live on PlayStation 4. To download and play Siege for free until Monday, November 14 at 8am PT, simply hit Try Free Demo on the PlayStation Store page for the standard edition (North America, Europe).

Additionally, the standard and Gold editions of Rainbow Six Siege are 50% off in North America and 45% in Europe right now, with PlayStation Plus members in Europe saving an extra 10%. “After playing free all weekend, unlock the full Standard or Gold Edition of Rainbow Six Siege for 50% OFF,” the listing says. “You’ll keep all of the progress that you made during the free weekend.”

Original Story: If you haven’t picked up Rainbow Six Siege yet, Ubisoft has announced that a free weekend will run from November 11 to 13 on PlayStation 4 and PC. This marks the first time the free trial has come to PS4, and it will allow anyone to join the over 10 million current players.

“In the lead up to the fourth major update, the Rainbow Six community remains strong and continues to increase with more people playing Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege than there were at launch,” Ubisoft said about the upcoming trial. “There is no better time to join the strong community of more than 10 million players and discover Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege firsthand.”

Further details on how to access the free trial weekend weren’t given, but it should just be a download from the PlayStation Store tomorrow.

On November 17, Ubisoft will release the Operation Red Crow update for Rainbow Six Siege on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. In addition to the new Skyscraper map and new gameplay features, the update will include these two new Japanese Special Assault Team (S.A.T.) Operators:

  • Hibana is an expert at gaining entry in high risk areas thanks to her explosive leadership on the field. She is equipped with the SuperNova and Type-89 as primary weapons, allowing for rapid motions and providing precise room-to-room clearings.
  • Echo, a tactical and technology-driven Operator, is also equipped with the SuperNova, along with the MP5SD4 as primary weapons, allowing him to proceed rapidly and precisely in Close Quarter Battle contexts.

Season Pass holders will get Echo and Hibana on November 17, while everyone else will have to wait until November 24 to be able to unlock them with Renown or R6 Credits.

Operation Red Crow will complete Ubisoft’s Year One road map for Siege, but support will continue for the title. To see Operation Red Crow in action for the first time, check out the Season 3 Finals livestream on Sunday, November 13 at 9:45am PT on Twitch.
