To ensure things never feel too stale, though, Ubisoft has opened R6S up to the general public for the weekend, specifically May 17th through the 21st.  It should already be available to download on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC, so you can hop in as soon as you're able.  The download itself can be found on the game's product page for both consoles and through the Uplay launcher on PC.  Just a reminder - you'll need a PlayStation Plus membership if you're using Sony's system.

Operation Chimera and Outbreak Now Live for Rainbow 6 SiegeJason Love

The update should be live on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One by the time of this posting, though the Xbox One may be running just a little behind as the Ubisoft team has been rolling out the update in three different waves across all platforms. Operation Chimera adds two new Operators, Finka and Lion, to the roster and some weapon skins. As with previous updates/content releases for Rainbow 6 Siege, you can earn these new operators and skins by playing and earning the in-game currency, or you can buy the Season 3 Pass to get access to all the new Operators, some premium currency, and a handful of other goodies. If you're just interested in the Outbreak event but have other gaming plans for the next month, don't worry, per the patch notes on the official website the event will be made available every so often over the course of the year.

The game has definitely made some strides over the past few years and been kept alive by the competitive gaming scene, but if you're more cooperatively minded, then you can enjoy the game's "Terrorist Hunt" mode. All of that will be available for free starting today on PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4, though it's worth noting that many of the operators and guns have to be acquired with in-game currency that's earned from playing. The free weekend will end on Tuesday, February 20, but all your progress will carry over into the full game if you decide to pick it up. More information about the free weekend can be found on the official website.

The event, titled "Outbreak," will arrive with the first season of content (titled "Operation Chimera") when it drops sometime early next year. The event will be free-to-play during a four week period, which seems to imply that you won't need to acquire the Operation Chimera content in order to play. In the new event, players will take on zombies, who are the ever-present threat in video games. Additionally, during that four week period players will be able to earn unique cosmetic rewards tied to the event.

Things have been relatively quiet these past few months as the development team focused on addressing and fixing many of the stability and balancing issues the community has been reporting for the past couple years, along with implementing a few quality of life improvements. One of those came with the most recent title update, which added dedicated Terrorist Hunt servers so you and your friends can keep playing even if Frank's Internet dies for the 15th time. (GET IT TOGETHER, FRANK!)

In a blog post last week, the developer went detailed what they now have planned for the shooter over the next few months. Rather than move forward with releasing the next DLC package, which was slated to add two new operators and a new map based around Hong Kong, they are pushing everything back so they can instead spend this time improving the stability of their servers, propping up a test server to try out new features before they go live, and address bugs reported by the community. They're calling it "Operation Health."

Ubisoft teased the name and location of the DLC, titled "Operation Red Crow", through social media earlier this week.  Of course, where publisher teases tread, leaks often follow.  Such is the case for R6S, as the names and images of the two forthcoming operators have been unearthed and can be seen below, courtesy of Reddit user cheesetoaster13.
