You probably heard a few weeks ago that there was a Rainbow Six demo dropping today, and there is - in every region outside the United States. On these blessed shores, Official Xbox Magazine has it on lock for the coverdisc.
Unless, um, you create an Xbox Live Silver Account whose “region” is designated as some other country, like Wales. Wales seemed to work for me. I have a feeling that the virtual population of Wales is about to balloon.
They should never have consented to limit the availability of this demo - it might have generated a lot of goodwill. After Lockdown, I think people felt that the series had kind of run its course. Play it and see - with a new protagonist and an ultrasatisfying tactical cover system, it’s clearly meant to reboot the franchise.
