As announced last week, Ubisoft has now made Rainbow Six Siege fully free to play until August 20th. So if you're interested in seeing what all of the fuss is about, you should head on over to the official website to download yourself a copy, as well as learn a little bit more about it.

Much like the last few free weekends, my recommendation would be to give Rainbow Six Siege an honest try. While the balance might not be perfect, Ubisoft has done an outstanding job of supporting it throughout the years, especially when it comes to the Operators and the unique playstyles they bring with them. So if you don't mind a bit of a steeper learning curve, I do believe you'll have a great deal of fun with Rainbow Six Siege. And if not, well... at least you didn't spend any money to find that out!

If you're not sure what Rainbow Six Siege is actually all about, however, allow me to share with you one of the recently posted official guide videos. It, and the rest of the videos in the series, should give you a pretty good idea of what to expect, and perhaps more importantly, of how to properly play as a team. Enjoy!
