To celebrate the fact that more than 25 million players have experienced a match of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft has announced that a free weekend of the game will be coming to players on all platforms next week on February 15. As is the case with most free weekends, all in-game progress made during your play time will cover over should you buy the full version of Rainbow Six Siege.
Ubisoft also announced that Operation Chimera will be available to all users on March 6, and continued to tease the free Outbreak event coming to the game on that same day. When the Outbreak event goes live on March 6, 2018, players will have to face an infestation of unknown origins that has been attacking a small town in New Mexico. Taking in two new operators – specialists in biohazard situations – they will have to face this major threat in order to save the town of Truth or Consequences.
For more information on the upcoming updates, check out below:
In Outbreak, the first seasonal event for Rainbow Six Siege, players will choose their best team of three to enter the devastated town of Truth or Consequences and neutralize the threat. From exploding monstrosities to hulking horrors, the Rainbow Six team will face something never-seen before. These armored monsters will bring the fight close and push the destruction engine to new heights. Players will have to find new ways of using their arsenal, against a foe that doesn’t take cover and engages instantly in close combat.
“Operation Chimera” will be available on TTS from February 19th and on all platforms on March 6th while “Outbreak” will be playable on PC on the second day of the Operation Chimera TTS, on February 20th. It will then be available on all platforms from March 6th to April 3rd inclusively.
Ubisoft will be releasing more information about the two operators and the Outbreak event update during the Six Invitational finals happening in Montreal on February 17-18, so make sure to stay tuned.
