Get a Rainbow Six Siege Beta Code by Preordering
You'll be able to check out the new Rainbow Six on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 prior to its release.
Ubisoft plans to run a closed beta for Rainbow Six Siege ahead of its release, and you can guarantee yourself access by preordering a copy of the shooter.
The closed beta will be available on all platforms--Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC--and is set to take place "sometime after" the end of the PC-only closed alpha. The beta will include more content and be better polished than the alpha, which we recently got a look at thanks to a leaked gameplay video.
"The Closed Alpha and the Closed Beta will help us to build a stable experience and to playtest game elements on a very large scale," reads a post on the official blog. "Whether you're testing early on PC during the closed alpha, or helping us validate the experience once we open on all platforms, we’re looking forward to interacting with you and working together to make Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege the best it can be at launch."
If you've already preordered Siege, you'll still get a beta code prior to its launch. In the meantime, you can still sign up to take part in the alpha if you haven't already done so.
Ubisoft has published a short FAQ offering more details on the beta and how it differs from the alpha. A key point is that the alpha is much more limited in the number of people who will be allowed in, and its focus is on dealing with bugs and server stability.
