Steam Charts: And we all sing along like before

Had a week off. (No, not a holiday, no such thing when there’s a three-year-old in the house). Bit of a break from writing about games. Though I’d rebuild and resupply a little, come back fighting fit, ready for anything GAMESWORLD might throw at me next.

R6 Siege Gets Free Weekend Now, Update Next Week

Two pieces of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege [official site] news have executed a choreographed breach of the RPS treehouse, lobbing flashbangs then crashing through the window and trapdoor to yell about a free trial weekend and the next big content update. And… now they’ve hustled Alec out of here, as if we’ve held him hostage all these years? Alec! Come back! Alec! Alec! Al- no, he’s away. Point is: the door-busting counter-terrorism FPS is free to play in full from now for the weekend. Then, next week, it’ll add two new characters and a new map in the ‘Operation Red Crow’ update.
