Shooting people - it is American as apple pie or baseball and you can do it for free this weekend with Rainbow SIx: Siege. Ubisoft’s team-based shooter hit has been a consistent favorite for gamers since it released in late 2015. Due to this popularity, Ubisoft announced that Siege would receive a second year of content updates.
The latest of those updates, dubbed Blood Orchid, brings a new map and collection of operators. The theme park-styled map and three new operators are parts of a massive patch that will lay the groundwork for future content. As an added bonus, the patch will decrease load times and add Ultra HD textures for the PC version.
While the Blood Orchid update was originally scheduled to release on August 29, the patch has been pushed back week to September 5 so it may receive an extra layer of polish. Ubisoft hopes to have a version of the update on the public test server by August 29, though.
The free weekend trial for Raiinbow Six Siege is scheduled as follows:
- PC: 1pm EST 24th August - 4pm EST 28th August
- PS4: 10am EST 24th August - 10am EST 28th August
- Xbox One: 3am EST 24th August - 3am EST 28th August
