Rainbow Six: Siege closed beta test gets extended until October 4

If you are in the current closed beta test for Ubisoft's upcoming tactical shooter Rainbow Six: Siege, you will have some extra time to play online. Ubisoft has extended the closed beta period until the end of Sunday, October 4 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC testers.

If you have yet to sign up to join the closed beta, you don't have much time left. The beta registration page will close on October 1. Also, the guaranteed access codes will only last until October 2. Ubisoft says:

  • Starting today, we will begin sending emails to all American and European players who have played at least one match in the Closed Beta before 2:00PM EST, September 29th 2015. These emails will contain immediate access codes that can be used by the players to get their friends in the beta. Those keys will be for the same platform as the player who qualified for friend referral. For example, if a player plays on Xbox One, he will receive additional Xbox One keys for his or her friends.
  • There will be a Double Renown event starting Friday, 8:00PM EST with a 2x renown bonus. This is a great chance to unlock some more operators, attachments and skins.

The full version of Rainbow Six: Siege will be released on December 1. By the way, Ubisoft recently revealed that the game will not have a traditional story-based single player campaign, but gamers can still play against AI opponents in the multiplayer levels.
