Open to all Xbox Live Gold members, the free weekend begins at Thursday, November 16 at 12:00 a.m. PT and runs until Monday, November 20 at 12:00 a.m. PT. During that period, you'll have access to everything the game's standard edition has to offer, for free. That means every map and every mode, as well as the ability to unlock and customize any of the game's 34 Operators.
Your progress will be saved after the free weekend is over, so you can pick up where you left off if you decide to buy the full game later. But you can pick it up at a hefty discount during the trial period. Gold members can get the standard and Gold editions for 60% off from November 16 through November 20, and the Complete Edition, which comes with the eight Operators from Year 1 and the Year 2 Season Pass, unlocking all Operators that have been added post-launch, is available for up to 50% off.
The free weekend ends just before the debut of Operation White Noise, Season 4 of Rainbow Six Siege's Year 2 content. Operation White Noise adds three new Operators, who will be unlocked at launch to Season Pass holders. Following the seven-day early access period for Season Pass holders, the content will be available to everyone to purchase using Renown or R6 Credits. The new map, a vertigo-inducing observation tower above Seoul's skyline, will be free for all at launch.
Rainbow Six Siege‘s cat-and-mouse shootouts are a merciless test of skill, where communication, destruction, and team play are vital to success. If you're ready to test your mettle, you can download Rainbow Six Siege from the Gold Member area on the Home dashboard when the trial period begins.
