Rainbow Six Siege Free to play on PC and XBOX ONE For This Weekend
Starting from July 29, until July 31 players around the world can get their hands on the game for free. The game consists of teams, where counter-terrorists have to breach an enemy enclosure and take them down. Assisting them are all types of tools and gadgets, as well as destructible environments.
The game will also be getting some new content in the form of the Operation Skull Rain expansion on August 2.
Operation Skull Rain
It adds two Operators and a map. The map puts players in a Brazilian favela that Ubisoft describes in a blog post as Siege’s “most destructible map to date.”
Additions in Skull Rain are – an angled grip attachment (which takes less time to switch from hip fire to aiming down the sights), a surrender system (letting ranked matches end early if the majority of a team votes for one before the third round), and a Tactical Realism custom game mode (doing away with kill confirmations and a number of other HUD elements.
Operators are Capitão and Caveira, both come from Brazil’s Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais, or BOPE. Capitão is more on offence then silent ops, carries an M-249 or PARA-308, PRB92, and frag or stun grenades. He also has a crossbow that fires “asphyxiating bolts that burn oxygen within a certain radius” or “micro” smoke grenades.
On the other hand Caveira is a defense character who is equipped with an M12 or SPAS-15 as a primary weapon, a PRB92 secondary, and C4 or barbed wire. Her skill is Silent Step, which lets her sneak up on an enemy, immobilize them, and interrogate them to get the location of all members of the enemy team.
