If you've been wondering what all the fuss surrounding Rainbow Six Siege is all about, you now have a chance to find out. By heading over to Steam you can download and play Rainbow Six Siege for the next 28 hours, completely free of charge.

As an added little bonus, Ubisoft has also put Rainbow Six Siege on a 50% discount, so if you end up enjoying yourself you can grab the full game for €20/$20. And don't worry, your progress will carry over to the full version.
