Rainbow Six Siege free weekend pre-load
Ubisoft confirmed that you’ll be able to pre-load Rainbow Six Siege on PC through Uplay, and PS4 starting today, August 14.
Xbox One players as well as those who prefer Steam on PC will sadly have to wait until the start of the weekend to download it.
Rainbow Six Siege free weekend PlayStation Plus and Xbox Live requirement
This coming Rainbow Six Siege free weekend will require an active subscription of PlayStation Plus on PS4, but all Xbox Live users will be able to jump in without the need for Gold.
Rainbow Six Siege free weekend content and progression
Because you’re downloading the full game, you will have access to all maps and modes. Not all operators will be unlocked, however, but you will be able to unlock them at the regular rate.
All the progress you make during the free weekend will carry over to the full version if you decide to buy it. If you buy the PC Starter Edition, your progress won’t carry over because this particular edition has certain progression caps.
Rainbow Six Siege free weekend sale
On Uplay, and Xbox One the game will be on sale August 16-27. On Steam, a similar sale will be available but will instead end August 20. On PS4, the sale goes live today, August 14, and remains available until August 25.
