Rainbow Six: Siege Beta Extension Announced


Ubisoft Montreal has announced they will be extending the Rainbow Six: Siege Beta. The closed Beta will be extended to October 4th, to allow for more information gathering.

Thank you to everyone who has been participating in the Rainbow Six: Siege Closed Beta thus far. This is one of the largest betas that Ubisoft has ever done, and needless to say, we’ve learned a lot since last Thursday and are looking forward to sharing with you the impact of this testing period on our game at launch, on December 1st.

For now, with access issues mostly resolved, we are taking the following actions:
◾Closed Beta extended through the rest of the weekend, ending on October 4th.
◾Starting today, we will begin sending emails to all American and European players who have played at least one match in the Closed Beta before 2:00PM EST, September 29th 2015. These emails will contain immediate access codes that can be used by the players to get their friends in the beta. Those keys will be for the same platform as the player who qualified for friend referral. For example, if a player plays on Xbox One, he will receive additional Xbox One keys for his or her friends.
◾There will be a Double Renown event starting Friday, 8:00PM EST with a 2x renown bonus. This is a great chance to unlock some more operators, attachments and skins.

Some other important pieces of information:
◾PvP matchmaking has improved with an average wait time of 30-45 seconds.
◾Terrorist Hunt has a 96% success rate per matchmaking attempt, with average 20-30 seconds of wait time. ◾If it takes longer than 90 seconds to get into any game, we recommend backing out and trying again.
◾If you are having difficulties matchmaking while in a squad, check out this list of potential workarounds.

◾If you are a pre-order customer and feel you should have received your invite by now, please contact customer support using “[Activation] Missing Code” as the subject line. We will be keeping an eye out for those.

Rainbow Six: Siege will be hitting on December 1st for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
