Rainbow Six Siege's closed beta begins today on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. The test lets players try out a range of content from the multiplayer shooter for a limited time.
Siege Beta testers will have access to two Team Deathmatch modes starting today. In "Secure Area," a team defends a biochemical agent at a fixed location while attackers must either hold that location for 10 seconds or eliminate the enemies. Defenders can win by either holding out until time expires or killing all the attackers. The "Bomb" mode tasks the attackers with defusing one of two bombs before time runs out. The defenders can win by stopping that from happening.
On September 25th, Ubisoft will add Terrorist Hunt Classic mode to the mix. This co-op mode asks five players to hunt down and kill all enemies in a given area. There are three different difficulty levels for this mode. The enemies' skill and equipment will improve as you make your way from Normal to Hard to Realistic difficulty.
These modes are playable in day or night on three different maps:
The closed beta will run until Monday, September 28th. Your limited time with the test might be hampered by technical problems, though. Ubisoft says that the purpose of the beta is to try out the game's matchmaking and infrastructure. They want that you could experience some issues when trying to start matches.
Gamers who pre-order Rainbow Six Siege are guaranteed access to the beta test. There was also a waiting list for players who registered at the website.
