Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege beta sign-up now available

Just days after the Ubisoft leak of Rainbow Six: Siege’s closed alpha gameplay the developer is now looking to move forward and has opened the sign-ups for their closed beta for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. The recent closed beta footage showed some unfinished textures, lackluster lighting and shadows, and sloppy movement mechanics that still need to be addressed.

Most fans of the series need to be hoping that the Ubisoft will be able to reach the quality of gameplay that they had initially showcased in their initial trailers and gameplay videos.

For those who want in on the closed beta you’ll have two options — either pre-ordering the game itself or signing up for the wait list and completing a nine step survey on the Ubisoft website.

No date has been revealed on exactly when the closed beta will start, but an email notification will alert those chosen for the beta when they can expect to get the early look.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege has an anticipated release for late 2015.

Ubisoft has revealed new details for highly anticipated open-world shooter, The Division, and their new specialized engine looks to bring a true next-gen experience to the Xbox One and Playstation 4.

In a world where society has collapsed within days, a classified unit of tactical agents is activated. The Division is designed to protect society after a major collapse.

The narrative within the game is certainly going to be a major key to enjoying the gameplay, but the cooperative experience will likely be the true heart of the game.

With seamless player vs player action developing as you play and player to player trading system as well, the game will likely be best played with friends and allies to support each other.

For those who want to try and different approach to the multiplayer, you’ll also be able to join the game with an app for mobile devices. You’ll play as a small drone that can attack enemies from above and mark targets for your allies.

You’ll be able to customize your character and loot fallen enemies or allies as you battle throughout the collapsed New York City.

“Customize your agent with thousands of weapon types, skill combinations, gear and much more.” (Tom Clancy’s The Division Press Release)

With a city like New York as your world of exploration, the environment should certainly be vast enough to witness a great variety of combat.

 “A persistent and dynamic environment that combines the Tom Clancy series’ core authenticity and tactical decisions, RPG action, trading and much more” 

Powering that the lighting effects and procedural destruction of that dynamic environment is Ubisoft’s new Snowdrop game engine. This new engine may be the most exciting quality the game has. The Snowdrop engine is “tailor-made for next-gen consoles” and because of that next-gen focus, Ubisoft and Massive Entertainment can bring a truly remarkable experience to the Xbox One, Playstation 4, and PCs in 2015.
