Dust off your silencers and breaching charges, as another Rainbow Six Siege beta is on its way. This time, it will be open to the public for a matter of a few days, to stress test the server before launch in December. As well as that, Ubisoft also released a new live action trailer for Rainbow Six Siege, featuring Idris Elba.
The open beta for Rainbow Six Siege will take place from November 25th through to November 29th, giving players a chance to try for free ahead of the game’s launch on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on December 1st. There will be three maps on offer, both in day and night time variants for you to explore.
Pre-load will be available on pc, Xbox Live and PSN marketplaces starting on November 23rd, and everyone who participated in the Closed Beta will have 24 hours early access starting on the 24th. The Open Beta contains some content you might not have played in previous testing periods, including a new map, new operators, and a new Terrorist Hunt mode.
During the Open Beta, you’ll get to play the other three Russian Spetsnaz operators which includes the heavily armored Tachanka and his mounted machine gun, and Glaz with his very effective sniper rifle. Closed Beta fan favorite Fuze and his incredibly dangerous cluster charge will not be available again until launch.
Competitive Multiplayer (PvP)
- Players will be able to play both Ranked and Unranked modes. While Ranked progression and stats will not carry over into the full launch, it will give you a chance to experience the “hardcore” settings outlined in our last Dev Update post.
- The two PvP modes from the Closed Beta are back, with players fighting over room control in TDM – Secure Area or defusing and defending bomb locations in TDM – Bomb.
Terrorist Hunt (PvE)
- Featured during E3 2015 and live event previews, Terrorist Hunt – Disarm Bomb will be available for everyone to play during the Open Beta. You and your team will need to iniltrate a location filled with White Masks and disarm two different bomb locations. Be careful, once the bomb has been disarmed, White Masks will attempt to swarm the location and take you out. Set up properly and cover your corners to hold off the threat before moving to the next location.
As for the trailer above, it is a rapid-fire re-enactment of Rainbow Six Siege’s counter-terrorist multiplayer matches, the trailer unfolds in a (rapidly demolished) re-creation of the House map, with Elba giving viewers a guided tour of the destruction.
