It's a big weekend for Rainbow Six Siege, as not only is the game free to play for everyone, but a new limited-time event has been introduced. The event is a tie-in for Netflix's Money Heist (known as La Casa De Papel in some regions), a Spanish series about a team of crooks who are trying to carry out a particularly elaborate and ambitious heist. The event will introduce a number of items based on the series.
During this event players can don the red suit and mask from the series as either Vigil and Hibana, testing out these exclusive skins during a round of Hostage in the Bank map. Eight items will be added in total, between uniforms, headgear, weapon skins, and charms. There are two bundles, each of which can be bought for 1680 R6 Credits. This event will run from now until November 25.
The game will also be free to play on PC, PS4, and Xbox One over the weekend running from November 21 through to November 25, allowing fans of the Netflix series (and everyone else) to check out the game in full. During this period, Rainbow Six Siege will be discounted on all systems as well. Those discounts are not in effect yet, and will likely vary between systems and bundles, but Ubisoft is promising discounts of up to 66%.
Rainbow Six Siege continues to add new operators well into its fourth year. It's also being updated with a new bullet penetration system, and is eventually planned to receive cross-play support. The game continues to be very popular, and is planned for release on next-generation consoles.
