Year 2 of the multiplayer FPS Rainbow Six: Siege is reaching its final quarter. Ubisoft has regularly attempted to usher new players into their Cinderella-story of a game with free weekends, but this time around they're not just serving up a taste. If Xbox Live users purchase 6-months of Gold on Amazon, they'll receive Rainbow Six: Seige for free.
Siege wasn't initially received well considering it was a multiplayer-focused entry in a series heralded for its FPS campaigns. Nevertheless, the game and developers endured as the community grew to over 20 million registered players. The game was built on a solid foundation of dynamic matches that require teamwork and the developers have continued to add to that experience with new operators and maps over the two years since launch.
Gold and PlayStation Plus are essentially required if consoles players have any interest in playing online, so this 6-month Gold grab spotted by Kinja Deals is getting you Rainbow Six: Siege at a very solid discount. The game alone is $49.99 on the Microsoft Store and, with this deal, you'll spend $39.99 to get the shooter and secure yourself 6 more months of online play. The access to Gold will also net you The Turing Test, Gone Home, and more as part of Games With Gold for October.
