It won’t cost you a nickel to play Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege this weekend. From February 2nd until the 5th, the strategic shooter will be free-to-play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC (uPlay/Steam). This is not a slimmed down demo version either, it offers “all of the maps, modes, and Operators present in the full version, giving you the full Siege experience over the free weekend.”
If you want to buy it after the free period is over, you can do so for “50% off”, according to Ubisoft. We can only imagine that will mean 50% off whatever the price is on the service you are using at the time. So just keep in mind the game is only $20 Prime shipped on Amazon and GameStop right now.
