For one weekend only, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will be free-to-play.
From May 17th to May 20th, the tactical shooter will be free for anyone to play on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, or PC.
“Join over 30 million players this weekend!” a description from the game’s website reads. “Discover the intense gameplay of Rainbow Six Siege full of close quarters combat, tactical team play, high lethality, and explosive action.”
All of the game’s maps, modes, and operators will be available to play during the free weekend, so players jumping on to check out the game won’t be missing out on anything.

Additionally, the game is getting a hefty discount in the time following the free weekend. On PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, players will see the game discounted for as much as 50 percent off from May 17th to May 28th, while PC players may see the price drop “as low as $10” from May 17th to May 21st. All progress made during the free weekend will carry over, so if you decide you enjoy the game during the free trial, you’ll be able to grab it at a fairly cheap price and continue where you left off.
PlayStation 4 players can begin the free trial on May 17th at 5 a.m. PT, with the trial ending at 6 a.m. on May 21st. Xbox One players begin at 12 a.m. PT and play until 12 a.m. on May 21st. PC players can start at 10 a.m. PT on May 17th, with their trial ending slightly earlier, at 1 p.m. on May 20th. To access the games, simply navigate to Rainbow Six Siege on the PlayStation Network, Xbox Store, or Uplay PC launcher.
The game is also available for pre-load starting on May 15th on PlayStation 4 and PC, so those players can begin downloading the game early to take full advantage of the free weekend. For the full details on how to begin, check out the FAQ on the Rainbow Six Siege site.
