Ubisoft is ready to breach and clear your home next week with the launch of Rainbow Six Siege. It’s a bit sad because it marks the end of the holiday season gaming rush, but fingers crossed its multiplayer shooter ends up hitting the target. They ran into some trouble yesterday and had to postpone the beta test, but it's live again now so you can give it go ahead of live. 

In time honoured fashion, the usual formula rings true. Ubisoft + Game Launch = Dramatic Launch Trailer. Their trailer editor must work their arse off this time of year. Just so you know it’s a huge deal that you can raid a bunch of houses next week, Ubisoft’s done a Shakespearean voice-over for full, stirring effect.

I had a quick session on this last night. On PS4 I must confess, because I wanted to play with a mate, but I came away quietly impressed. I’m not really understanding the cries that it’s not a proper Rainbow Six game. Siege certainly felt like one to me, with tactical nous favoured over lightning quick reactions.

However, levels don’t appear to be as destructible as we’d been led to believe, with destroyable items restricted to certain marked areas. As I said I haven’t put much time in yet, so I could be wrong on that account.

Rainbow Six Siege is out on December 1st for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. 

What have you thought of the beta test? Could it be your next go-to MP shooter?

I played the closed and now also open BETA and can just say I love it. Both BETAS performed the same, well they had server issues or god knows what but I guess they have been testing them, cause its also a reason of having BETAS. Bought the game voucher of Nvidia of somebody who didnt wanted it, 20€... :)

I've played 4 of the beta's, (I know right?) and this game, even in beta, is my favorite FPS game of 2015, probably all time. The mixture of strategy and FPS style gameplay is nothing short of breathtaking.

I have played more than 30 h in game and I am still suprised by the joy I get from this game !.Being a hunter , or the hunted is extremely tense every time , and I can only congratulate Ubisoft on that !

I'm playing the beta now on Steam and I think the hitboxes are sloppy, small maps offer little variety, sometimes the grenades are used with "g" other times with "middle mouse" and it got me teamkilled a couple of times -.- Otherwise great graphics, great climbing and destruction.

I always thought that the variety comes from your playstyle . The more imaganative tactical style , the more fun you ge out of it.

Just to let you know Open beta recommends medium textures for GTX960 2GB, other options are mostly high with no AA on 1080p, looks great never below 60fps. But I heard the Closed beta performed better on PC. Played 19 hours, had fun but I also feel like it's getting boring after the first 10 hours.
