Ubisoft launches the first alpha phase of Rainbow Six Siege mobile
After the Rainbow Six mobile trailer for its announcement at the beginning of April, we already have new information about this port. Ubisoft has just announced the launch of a phase ofRainbow Six Siege mobile alpha. So, what does this first R6 test version contain and how do I access it? We tell you everything in this article.
To register for the R6 mobile closed alpha, visit the game’s website. Selected participants will receive an email with instructions to download Rainbow Six on mobile in alpha. Only Android users will be able to participate in this first phase. However, if you are on iOS, do not panic, your turn will come soon.
However, bad news for us Europeans: the Rainbow Six Siege Mobile alpha will initially only be available for United Statesthe Canada and the Mexicosince the May 3, 2022. The creative director of R6 Mobile, however, let us know that multiple test phases will follow one another. They will take place in the different regions of the world over the next few months.
16 agents, 2 maps and 2 game modes available
This first Rainbow Six mobile test phase will focus on gameplay mechanics. And I must say that I’m rather curious to see if Ubisoft will manage to effectively transcribe the gameplay of R6 Siege, whose connoisseurs understand all the complexity, while managing to shorten the time of a game to work better in mobile format.
The developers are well aware that their game is far from over and players will encounter many bugs. It is also to accelerate the process that the closed alpha of Rainbow Six Siege Mobile intervenes so early in the development. This means that there will be no progress in this version, and no personalization no more.
While only 10 agents were originally announced, the R6 Mobile alpha will allow access to 16 agents, including Rook, Thatcher, Ying, and Recruit, Rainbow Six Siege’s default agent. Players will compete in game modes Bomb defusal and Area securing. Besides, the fights will be held on the maps Bank and Frontierthe two maps visible in the trailer.
Barely in alpha, Rainbow Six Siege Mobile will have competition from Competitive FPS on Android and iOS. It faces COD Mobile and PUBG Mobile which are already well installed. In addition, two very popular licenses will soon be entitled to their port: Apex Legends (already released in certain regions) and Valorant.
