Ubisoft has another free weekend in store. Rainbow Six Siege will be free to play from 16 until 19 November. The game will be on sale for up to 60 percent off until 21 November.

Tactical shooter lovers will be glad to hear that Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Siege is having a free weekend. The event will be available on  Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC. Players will be granted access to the full version of Rainbow Six: Siege.

The game will also be on sale for up to 60 percent off from 16 November to 21 November. The usual "all progress made during the free weekend will be transferred to the purchased copy of the game" deal applies.

  • The free weekend for Xbox will start on 16 November, 2017 at 7:00 AM GMT, and will end on 20 November, 2017 at 7:00 AM GMT.  
  • PlayStation 4 players will start their free weekend on 16 November, 2017 at 1:00 PM GMT, and will end on 20 November, 2017 at 1:00 PM GMT.  
  • The free weekend for the PC will start on 16 November, 2017 at 5:00 PM GMT, and will end on 19 November, 2017 at  5:00 PM GMT

PlayStation 4 and PC pre-loads are available now, and Xbox One players will get to pre-load the game "at the start of the Free Weekend."

The free weekend will end just before Operation White Noise gets dumped onto the PC technical test server. That will happen on 20 November.

The Operation White Noise update will add a new map, set in an observation tower above Seoul, and three new operators. Additional details for Operation White Noise will be unveiled during the Rainbow Six: Siege Pro League Finals on 19 November.
