Rainbow Six Siege is going to be free to download and play for a short trial period starting on Thursday, June 17.
Ubisoft has big plans for R6 over the coming year, with a new spin-off game and crossplay being planned.
But for right now, the new North Star expansion, including its new operator Thunderbird, will be the main focus.
The new update offered more than just a new character to play as, with Ubisoft also reworking the Favela map and making it possible to use Nvidia DLSS features on PC.
For anyone who has never used it before, DLSS makes it possible to boost performance while running games at high specs.
And now Rainbow Six Siege players with GeForce RTX graphics cards and laptops can enable DLSS by heading over to the options screen and enabling it.
NVIDIA DLSS is supported in the Vulkan version of Rainbow Six Siege and boosts performance by up to 50% at 4K, enabling all GeForce RTX GPUs to game at 100+ FPS at 4K with every setting maxed out
And a better frame rate can only help you and your team as you take on the latest Rainbow Six Siege challenges.
So if you have the right PC, you can play Rainbow Six Siege for free this weekend and check out what changes DLSS makes.
