Ubisoft has extended the date of Rainbow Six Siege’s closed beta till October 1. Given that the beta version of the game has received popularity and server stability, this is a good move.
Chase Straight Community Developer stated on Ubisoft forums that there have been few issues reported but they are working to do away with these as soon as possible.
More scoop on the beta version
Launched over the weekend, the beta run did see gamers complaining because they did not get access codes despite pre-ordering this game. Straight recently said that this has also been resolved.
For those who had ordered the game digitally, the beta version is now available via download from Uplay, Stream, PlayStation and Xbox Live. Some players are still on the waiting list to receive access. Once distribution is complete, the maker will send out relevant invites.
Say No To Solo
More scoop from Rainbow Six News has revealed that this game will no longer have a solo player mode. Art director Scott Michell has said that the game will not have a story mode in the real sense of the term. He has further clarified that players will receive training where they can experience various operators with their devices.
You may choose to play against Al, the enemy in co-op mode across the maps or even personalize matches. The Star, Renown and similarly laced point system will still be relevant.
Rainbow Six Siege’s beta version has some loopholes such as crashing and connectivity issues as well. But given its strong popularity at Gamescom 2015, we sure are not giving up on it.
