Rainbow Six Siege is offering four free weekend keys for all current owners of the game

Rainbow Six Siege is no stranger to controversy the past week or so as many people have criticized it over a lack of content and the grind necessary in order to access all of the available missions. So it is understandable if you held off on buying it for the time being.

Luckily, instead of taking a blind plunge, you'll now be able to try Siege during its free weekend which starts today and ends on Monday. If you find yourself even remotely interested in it now would be the best time to give Siege a try.

So how can you get a free key?

Each current owner of Siege will get 4 free keys they can give out. These keys can be acquired over here. Now, you might instantly feel disappointed because you don't know anyone that owns the game and as such you can't give it a try either but there are plenty of keys being shared over at various Rainbow Six forums and websites so through even a small bit of searching you'll be able to nab one for yourself.

The free week will begin Friday, December 18th at 6:01pm EST and last until Monday, December 21st, at 12:01 PM EST. During the event, if you find Siege to your liking, you'll be able to get it at a 25% discount.

As for my opinion - I'm not much of a tactical FPS fan but I've heard some really good things about Sieges multiplayer so if you have any friends around that are willing to give it a try with you I'd say go for it, you might end up enjoying it and worst case scenario you've wasted an hour messing around with friends. Not a bad deal all things considered.
