Rainbow Six Siege Closed Beta Extended

The Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six website announces closed beta testing of the upcoming Rainbow Six shooter Rainbow Six Siege is being extended through the end of this weekend, and will now conclude on October 4th. Word is: "Not only will this give you all more time play, it will give us more time to collect more data, feedback and identify potential issues." They also note that all players who have participated in at least one closed beta match will be receiving codes in the mail to invite one friend to join the beta on the same platform.

I have 3 beta keys left. PM me if you want one.

The game is a bit crap, however.

Sad... I still haven't even received my beta download instructions to see how incredibly bad this game is, even though I've been confirmed since July.

Ubi sent me 4 keys to dish out to friends.
None of them want one, after my report on the beta
So I've just sent you one to the email address on your contact details here.

Got another 3 going spare... anyone want one?

lol, it looks really nice on ultra actually, the alpha was console graphics, everything locked to medium, but this pc beta on ultra everything actually looks like that first trailer 2 E3's ago, very pretty.

Dude. Bullshit. Everything looks... "super-corny" for lack of a better word, as if they are using some sort of extreme texture compression. It all looks like a poorly compressed JPEG image in motion. No smoothness, no proper texture filtering, nothing.

I don't know if it is like that because they tried to keep the size of the beta in check (it's only about 7GB). Maybe they are going to unfuck the graphics for the actual release version? Whatever, it's complete and utter crap compared to any other modern game based on Frostbite, UE4 or CryEngine.

If you think otherwise you need to lay off the garbage console gaming and rejoin civilized PC gaming with some quality games that actually *do* look good fo'realz.

Really makes me sad if R6 siege really is that bad, as I used to love the Rainbow Six series.... countless hours of great memories...

Ubi, what have you done??

i don't get the hate myself, i quite enjoy it. doesn't feel floaty to me at all, and the gunplay is precise and satisfying. LOVE the destructible walls/floors and rappelling - really adds a new dimension to fps's.

by the by, i just got 4 closed beta keys and i'll post them in tomorrow's ootb at 2pm pacific time so warm up your refresh keys homies.

Haven't even made it in-game yet. Tried to squad up with a friend, and whomever created the squad and started the game crashed out, while the other dumped back to the UI with a generic error message.

Wooo beta...

I used to be a fan of the series (best part was Rogue Spear IMHO) minus the horrible Lockdown. I even kind of liked the Vegas games.
But Siege is another Lockdown - except worse. What a horrible game.
Underwhelming graphics, lame gun play, some really dumb design decisions (like the timer on the operator selection screen even if you play solo - WTF?) and no single player campaign. No thanks.

I've played a bit of Terrorist Hunt, and it's pretty good, but they're taking the piss charging $60US for this when compared to titles like Black Ops 3, which is just going to be packed full of features.
