The leading piece of content from year three, season one, Operation Chimera, will be available first on PC through the technical test server starting February 19 and will launch later on all platforms on March 6. Everyone on PS4, Xbox One, and PC can play completely free from February 15 through February 20. The new co-op mode, Outbreak, will be playable on PC through the Ubisoft technical test server beginning February 20.

All of the above test content for Operation Chimera will eventually go live on 6 March. Naturally, all your in-game progress will carry over whenever you buy a full version of Rainbow Six Siege. For some added incentive to buy the game, Rainbow Six Siege is now 50% off until February 12 on the Microsoft Store.
