R6 Siege Open BETA.

Written by FcUK_A on . Posted in Game News

The Rainbow Six Siege open beta will be available from 25th-29th November, Ubisoft has announced.

Those who got into the closed beta will gain access to it 24 hours early on the 24th. (Exact launch times vary by region.)


The Rainbow Six Siege open beta will contain three maps (Kanal, Hereford and House) along with three game modes. These include two PvP modes, Bomb and Secure Area, along with the PvE Disarm Bomb mode in which 1-5 players must take out a unit of terrorists. Once you infiltrate the base and disarm the enemies' bomb, they'll start swarming you from outside so you'll have to set up defenses in an Assault on Precinct 13-like scenario. Johnny rather liked solo-ing this mode.

The open beta will contain 14 different Operators, including the heavy machine gun-wielding Tachanka and the sniper Glaz, though the closed beta fan-favourite Fuze won't be available until the game launches on 1st December.

Unfortunately, data from the open beta will not transfer into the retail game.

Have a read through this update from the Devs for Rainbow Six Siege. 

The line which stands out for me is this one !

"Custom matches that aren't held on dedicated servers (LAN or peer-to-peer) will be listed in a server browser."
