Ubisoft announced on Friday in blog post that the first Rainbow Six Siege Alpha will officially begin on Tuesday, April 7 starting at 7 AM PDT / 10 AM EDT. The alpha will end on April 13.
Ubisoft is focusing on three main areas during the play test.
- Core Gameplay – Siege has reached the point in development where we need your creativity to test the game and validate the experience we’ve been building. It’s still early enough that a lot can change.
- Server infrastructure – Strong online connection and matchmaking is crucial for operating a game as a service. Testing our infrastructure early will help us optimize your experience at launch.
- Feedback – We’ve been working on this game for a long time, and having fresh pairs of eyes reviewing the experience helps us figure out any problem areas we might have missed.
“We’re looking for passionate testers who understand the nature of a PC Closed Alpha and are willing to work with us on making it better,” the developer explained.
