Massive recent games like Red Dead Redemption 2 or Fallout 76 can offer hundreds of hours of enjoyment. Unfortunately, those games cost money. If you don't want to part with any cash but you want to play something fun, you're in luck--particularly if you enjoy strategic, team-based combat. Rainbow Six Siege is free to play on PS4, Xbox One, and PC between November 15-18.

It's not a limited chunk of the game going free, either. You'll have access to all modes, all maps, and the 20 Operators that launched with the game. That ought to give you an idea of whether you want to continue playing once Monday rolls around.

If you decide to buy the game, you'll be able to get most versions of Rainbow Six Siege at a sizable discount on digital platforms between now and November 30. Any progress you make this weekend will carry over into the full game. It will also be on sale at Best Buy for Black Friday, with the Advanced Edition dropping to $25 on PS4 and Xbox One. You can get more information about Siege's free weekend, along with tips for starting out, here.

Rainbow Six Siege received 8/10 from GameSpot when it launched in December 2015. "My experiences weren't always perfect," Scott Butterworth wrote in his Rainbow Six Siege review, "but when [it] works, there's nothing else like it. It's not designed to appeal to all players, and that's exactly what allows it to be something special. With so much strategic depth, those periods between firefights actually become some of the most rewarding, while firefights themselves are made all the more intense by the knowledge that you're fighting for your life, not just your kill/death ratio."

Siege has received loads of updates since launch, with new modes, maps, and Operators being added. The next update, Operation Wind Bastion, will be set in Morocco and introduce two new Operators, both of which leaked before the official reveal. The update will also censor certain maps and in-game content to adhere to laws in China and other Asian territories where it will soon launch.

This is a game that I play on a daily basis and have more than 1500hours in 2 accounts combined. It's a really good game with really good mechanics but it doesn't always work.

If you're thinking of trying it out get ready to get your ass served to you. Soo many smurfs will be playing this game that it will be insane. If you think you like it or could like it buy the standard edition ( never starter edition cuz that just sucks ), get to lvl20 and go into ranked. Once you get ranked ( even if copper ) just play the game for one season. You'll learn the maps and the operators. Then go into tactics and try to find a team. Also watch some youtube videos from people that play in higher ranks. It will help you out.
