Gear Up for the Rainbow Six Siege Open Beta!
UPDATE: 26 NOVEMBER 2015
An update in the official Ubisoft Forums confirms that the Rainbow Six Siege Open Beta has been postponed due to issues on matchmaking times as well as disconnection on all platforms. Due to this, the game will remain in Closed Beta until further announcements.
With its December 1, 2015 release date coming really fast, and after a successful closed beta, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege has recently announced an Open Beta which is set to happen on November 25th until the 29th.
The Open Beta will be available on Uplay for PC, Xbox One, and PS4. The exact times as to when the Open Beta will start will be different from one region to another. Players are going to be able to pre-load the Open Beta as early as November 23rd (on 1st party marketplaces only), and on November 24th for those who were able to participate in the Closed Beta.
According to the announcement posted on the official Rainbow Six Siege website, the Open Beta “will be focused primarily on testing matchmaking and online infrastructure, and as such will only feature a limited scope of the game’s content.” Players’ progression, inventory and Ranked gameplay during the Open Beta will also not be carried over to the official release of the game.
OPEN BETA CONTENTThe Open Beta will include new content which have not been played on previous tests. The Open Beta includes a new map, new operators, and a new game mode called Terrorist Hunt. What’s playable:
- 14 Operators and 5 Reserves
- 3 Maps: Kanal Industrial Harbor Map, Hereford Base, and House Map
- 3 Game Modes: Secure Area (PvP), Bomb (PvP), and Terrorist Hunt (PvE)
