Ubisoft’s mobile efforts continue to grow. During today’s Ubisoft Forward presentation, the company announced the closed beta window for Rainbow Six Mobile, its upcoming tactical shooter based on Tom Clancy’s sub-series. Players will have the chance to try it out starting September 12.
Previously, the studio held a closed alpha for Rainbow Six Mobile in May. This beta is meant to increase the amount of content players can test out, along with the Clubhouse map found in Seige. Other notable locations include Bank and Border, giving people the chance to play in close, more open spaces.
Rainbow Six Mobile will retain the series’ signature 5v5 gameplay with attacking and defending Operators. Ubisoft wants this to be an authentic Rainbow Six experience, designed purely for mobile devices rather than console and PC. As such, the team is pushing visual fidelity as much as possible.
Rainbow Six Mobile has no release date, but when it launches it will be free on Android and iOS devices.
The company also revealed during the showcase that The Division Resurgence will be holding a closed beta this fall, though exact dates weren’t provided. Elsewhere, Ubisoft has been revealed to be working on several Assassin’s Creed games, including Mirage, Codename Hexe, and Codename Red. The latter two will take place during the witch trials of the Holy Roman Empire and Feudal Japan, respectively.
