Sign Up for Rainbow Six Siege's Closed Alpha


May 4, 2013
Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege made an impressive debut at E3 last year, but we haven't heard much about the game since. However, Ubisoft has announced that you might be able to play the game yourself soon in an upcoming Closed Alpha test.

Ubisoft didn't say when it plan to launch the Closed Alpha, but you can register for it now.

You'll need a Uplay account to participate, and can sign up through The Closed Alpha will be limited to PC players in North America and Europe only. You can find a map of eligible countries in this FAQ.

Ubisoft also shared the minimum system requirements you'll need in order to participate in the Alpha. Keep in mind that Ubisoft is still working on optimizing the game, and that the launch specs will be lower than what you see here.

Siege was announced during E3 in 2014, though it's not altogether a "new" game. It is the game that rose from the ashes of Rainbow Six Patriots, which Ubisoft effectively canceled. It plays a lot like Counter-Strike, with one team trying to save hostages from the enemy team. It made a great impression at E3 with its destructible environments, allowing players to shoot and blow up walls and floors to make their own path.
