Ubisoft has announced the registration for the Rainbow Six mobile alpha, a mobile version of its popular Rainbow Six Siege series. Developed by an independent team at Ubisoft Montreal over approximately three years behind the scenes, Rainbow Six Mobile will bring the familiar 5v5 competitive and tactical gameplay pitting attackers against defenders.
How to register for the Rainbow Six Mobile alpha
You can sign up for Rainbow Six Mobile alpha, for Android and iOS platforms, by heading to the official website and scrolling down to the bottom. The developers are planning a series of live tests to get lots of fan feedback.
Rainbow Six Mobile pits a team of attackers against a team of defenders. The attacking side must disarm traps, free hostages, and break through walls, while the defending side must trap attackers, protect the objective, and reinforce walls. There are currently five named characters for each side, but more heroes will become available as the game progresses.
When the mobile game arrives on the scene, it will have two maps: a fortified bank with lots of small rooms that defenders can easily reinforce, and a more open but more destructible border outpost in a mountainous region wedged between two countries. More maps will also be added in future updates.
The developers want to make sure players expect a fantastic translation of Siege’s gameplay into mobile form, in a blog post on the official site:
“While core gameplay, characters, and maps may share similarities with Siege, we’ve rebuilt everything from the ground up with mobile friendliness in mind… This includes an all-new gameplay control system specifically for mobile and extended UI optimization and in-game visual presentation.”
