Closed Alpha: Rainbow Six Siege Mobile is Coming

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege was released by Ubisoft in 2015, and it is still going strong six years later. Despite the fact that it isn’t as well-known as League of Legends or Call of Duty in terms of Esports, it still has a sizable player base.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege was released by Ubisoft in 2015, and it is still going strong six years later. Despite the fact that it isn’t as well-known as League of Legends or Call of Duty in terms of Esports, it still has a sizable player base.

With the new R6 season there is a lot to look forward to on PC, but many turn their eyes to what Ubisoft has planned for mobile.

In April 2022, Ubisoft confirmed that a Rainbow Six Mobile game is in the works, with multiple live tests planned in the near future. It is the only title that would be used for Androids and iOS devices. Unfortunately, the developer did not provide a release date, but given that players will be able to join in a limited alpha this spring, the project should be finished soon. We expect it will be released in the fall of 2022 or potentially early in 2023.

On April 5, 2022, the game’s first trailer was released, featuring in-engine cinematics and early alpha gameplay footage. Without giving too much away, it gives a broad idea of what the finished result will look like. It seems a lot like Siege based on the clip, but with a few differences, especially in terms of visual fidelity. (It is, after all, running on a mobile device.)

Ubisoft said on Twitter that they would hold a “closed alpha” test. During the game’s first alpha session, only a few select players will be given access to play the game. The test began on May 3, 2022, and individuals interested in participating can still register.

If you plan to become a top player when the game finally launches getting training from experienced R6 players is a common choice for gamers.

How To Sign Up for Live Tests

Players from the United States of America, Mexico, and Canada are the only ones who can take the test. These geographic locations would be used to choose the players.

If you’re interested in taking part, you can sign up on the Rainbow Six Mobile website. After that, you’ll be requested to check in with your Ubisoft account and answer a few questions about other mobile FPS tiles you’ve played. You will then be registered to be invited to play. Keep in mind that not everyone is chosen. Also, it’s unclear how long the ‘coming weeks’ will last, so wait and see if you gain access.

Rainbow Six Mobile Hands-On

If you’ve played Rainbow Six Siege before, you’ll note that the mobile alpha’s main menus are very similar to the main game. As Ubisoft stated prior to the alpha’s release, this is a bite-sized version of Siege. Although we already know there will be no cross-play between smartphones and consoles/PC, this configuration should appeal to Siege lovers.

It is not yet known what maps the game will have available on launch, but we expect the most popular maps from the PC version to make a return to draw players who enjoyed the game on PC to the mobile platform.

Operators will likewise be able to access to a variety of perks and weapon attachments, and Ubisoft continuously encourages players to participate in events in order to get access to more customization possibilities. Be mindful of which operators you choose, as it is expected to have an immense impact on your skills in the mobile version as well!

According to Ubisoft, a small sample of players provided feedback and suggestions. They delivered surveys regarding the game to the players via email. This is to assist the team in improving the gaming experience prior to the game’s official launch. The test and the game are designed only for mobile devices. Thus, there will be no cross-platform feature.
