According to HITC.com, the limited free release of the game will allow newcomers to experience the game to its fullest, including its sixty Operators in its roster and an access to their game maps and modes, including its online multiplayer modes.
Also, according to the FAQs that was posted in the game's website, they can also play Rainbow Six Siege during its limited free release with everyone who either already owns the game or is enjoying the said limited release, including their friends.
This is despite of the fact that there are still problems within the game. FossBytes.com stated that Ubisoft is still solving the issue regarding players who had a hard time targeting their enemies, as well as testing a rim lighting effect to prevent several Operators' skins from blending in the background.
However, once the limited free release is gone, Rainbow Six Siege will return as a pay-to-play game. But Ubisoft said that the game will be sold on a discounted price up to 70% for a limited time only.
The game's developers also noted that the player's progress will be saved and will carry over once they bought the full game.
The limited free time release of Rainbow Six Siege, is also a preparation for the upcoming release of a new Rainbow Six game, Rainbow Six Extraction, which was first unveiled in the Electronic Entertainment Expo 2021 during their Ubisoft Forward showcase event.
Extraction will be a different take from the usual Siege as it will focus on zombie-like creatures that are controlled by a parasite. In Extraction, players will focus on Operator abilities that will counter these enemies while extracting their fallen teammate from a parasite-infected site.
