Rainbow Six Siege's Money Heist Event And Free Weekend Detailed

The limited event runs from now until November 25.

Comments

It's a big weekend for Rainbow Six Siege. Those who don't yet own the game will be able to play it for free across PS4, Xbox One, and PC starting today, but a new limited-time event has also 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. this is more modest than some other events; rather than a special game mode or anything of the sort, the Money Heist event will introduce a number of new cosmetic 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--one for Vigil and one for Hibana--each of which can be bought for 1680 R6 Credits. This event will run from now until November 25. Here's what's up for sale:

Hibana's Heist Bundle

  • Red Jumpsuit uniform
  • Emboldened headgear
  • Tokyo charm
  • Regal Mint weapon skin for the TYPE-89

Vigil's Accomplice Bundle

  • Red Jumpsuit uniform
  • Nameless headgear
  • The Surrealist charm
  • Fresh Paper weapon skin for the K1A

The game will also be free to play on all platforms from Thursday, November 21 until Sunday, November 24, 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. Most of those discounts are not in effect yet, and will likely vary between systems and bundles, but Ubisoft is promising discounts of up to 70%.

Ahead of Black Friday, Ubisoft's Uplay store has taken its deals live on Rainbow Six Siege, discounting all versions of the game. The cheapest of the bunch is available for just $8.

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.
