Next Rainbow 6 Siege DLC Arrives August 2, Free Weekend

Let the skulls rain on me

If you're still playing Rainbow 6 Siege, then we've got some good news for you. The next round of DLC, "Operation Skull Rain," arrives for all platforms next Tuesday, August 2. It will feature two new operators for you to use in any mode, which hopefully means you'll be checking them out in co-op.

Skull Rain shifts things from the deserts of the Middle East to the outskirts of Rio de Janeiro. Both of the new operators are from the Brazilian special police unit known as BOPE (Batalhão de Operações Policiais Especiais) and, as with the previous new characters, one is an attacker and the other a defender. Capitão, the attacker, has a special tactical crossbow that can fire incendiary bolts to ignite all the oxygen in a room and suffocate opponents (I don't think that's how air works?) and Caveira, the defender, can sneak up on enemies, incapacitate them, and reveal their fellow teammates.

Both of the new operators will be free to all Season Pass holders and available for in-game purchase using the premium currency for everyone else.

In addition to all that, you can enjoy a free weekend of Rainbow 6 Siege for the next few days on the PC and XBox One. Starting today at 1:00 pm Eastern, hit up Uplay on the PC or the Xbox One Marketplace to get access to the game until 3:00 am Eastern, August 1st.
