Beta participants to receive extra codes to send to friends.
Ubisoft has extended its closed beta for Rainbow Six: Siege yet again. It was originally set to end on September 28th but received an extension till October 1st. The closed beta is now set to end on October 4th.
The reason is the same as before – server issues preventing players from actually experiencing the game. Ubisoft is working on fixing the errors and reports improved matchmaking success overall. It’s also sending beta keys to participants to share with friends.
“Not only will this give you all more time play, it will give us more time to collect more data, feedback, and identify potential issues.”
A double XP event will be taking place on October 1st, the same day the beta registration page will be taken offline. If you still have an access code from pre-ordering, you should redeem it by October 2nd. Those who haven’t received a beta code should contact customer support and if you still have problems with matchmaking, there are a few workarounds.
