Running from November 25 – 29, the open Rainbow Six Siege beta for PlayStation 4 is now available on the PlayStation Store in North America and Europe, requiring a 7.8GB download, according to the product page.
As Ubisoft revealed last week, start times for the open beta on November 25 will vary by region for all platforms. If you participated in the Closed Beta, you’ll have 24 hours early access on November 24.
The Open Beta will be focused primarily on testing matchmaking and online infrastructure, and as such will only feature a limited scope of the game’s content. Your progression, inventory and Ranked gameplay during the Open Beta will not carry over into the final game.
Featuring 14 Operators and five Reserves, as well as three day/night maps (Kanal, Hereford, House), you’ll be able to play in these modes:
Competitive Multiplayer (PvP)
- Players will be able to play both Ranked and Unranked modes. While Ranked progression and stats will not carry over into the full launch, it will give you a chance to experience the “hardcore” settings outlined in our last Dev Update post.
- The two PvP modes from the Closed Beta are back, with players fighting over room control in TDM – Secure Area or defusing and defending bomb locations in TDM – Bomb.
Terrorist Hunt (PvE)
- Featured during E3 2015 and live event previews, Terrorist Hunt – Disarm Bomb will be available for everyone to play during the Open Beta. You and your team will need to infiltrate a location filled with White Masks and disarm two different bomb locations. Be careful, once the bomb has been disarmed, White Masks will attempt to swarm the location and take you out. Set up properly and cover your corners to hold off the threat before moving to the next location.
Rainbow Six Siege launches on December 1 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
