Ubisoft Announces Rainbow Six Mobile Is Coming To iOS And Android
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six is getting a mobile release with iPhone and Android owners among those who will be able to play it. The mobile title is based on the same one that we’ve seen on PC and console already and has the potential to be a real hit among gamers.
Ubisoft says that the title will offer competitive multiplayer gaming when it ships while also sharing a pre-alpha version of the game in a trailer.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six is coming to mobile! Explore a diverse roster of Operators and destructible environments in classic maps like Bank and Border. Experience Rainbow Six Mobile: a competitive multiplayer, first-person tactical shooter. Play as an Attacker or Defender in PvP matches and face intense close-quarter combat while making timely tactical decisions.
The title itself will be available in the Google Play Store and App Store and a closed alpha test will begin in the next few weeks. Those who are interested in taking the game for a spin early can sign up to get in on the act now, although be warned — expect bugs galore, at least for now.
The team behind the game says that we can expect a mobile game that is very similar to the console and PC versions that are already so popular.
At first glance, many people might see Rainbow Six Mobile and think it looks incredibly similar to Siege, which is great! At its heart, Rainbow Six Mobile is a competitive and tactical FPS game with two teams of 5 – Attackers and Defenders. While the core gameplay, characters, and maps may share similarities with Siege, we’ve rebuilt everything from the ground up with mobile usability in mind. We have put a lot of work under the hood to adapt the Siege experience for mobile devices. This includes an entirely new gameplay control system developed specifically for mobile and extensive optimization of the UI and in-game visual presentation.
We don’t yet know when the game will be available for everyone to play, however.
