Much like all online-centric titles of late, Ubisoft is planning a closed beta for Rainbow Six Siege at some point this year, and has announced that players can register for their chance to partake in the bout of testing from today.
Granted, access is not guaranteed; over on the publisher’s official site, you’ll be asked to complete a survey, choose your platform of choice, and have your name thrown into the proverbial hat. But for those who want to reserve their spot in the upcoming beta for sure, Ubisoft has confirmed that players will get instant access should they pre-order the tactical shooter.
“Yes, you can now pre-order Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege to get access to the Closed Beta later on this year. Stay tuned for more information on the Closed Beta in the coming months.”
Rainbow Six Siege has already been the subject of internal testing at Ubisoft, »

A closed beta for Ubisoft’s upcoming Rainbow Six: Siege is coming later this year to PS4, Xbox One and PC and you can guarantee access by pre-ordering the game.
News of the beta became apparent when Reddit user j_dirty saw this poster at GameStop (thanks, vg247!).
While Ubisoft hadn’t announced a beta prior to this discovery, they disclosed earlier today to Videogamer that a closed beta is scheduled for later this year. They said: “Yes, you can now pre-order Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Siege to get access to the Closed Beta later on this year. Stay tuned for more information on the Closed Beta in the coming months.”
Update: If you don’t have a code for the closed beta, you can now sign up to go on the waiting list via the Uplay system here.
The game is currently in Closed Alpha.

One of the most frequent complaints that has been lobbed against the PlayStation 4 in the past year or so has been the lack of games, especially exclusives. Last fall in particular it was a visible problem as the rival Xbox One had several well-regarded exclusives hit such as "Sunset Overdrive," "Halo: The Master Chief Collection" and "Forza Horizon 2" on top of the cross-platform Aaa titles that both consoles share.
In early 2015 though the tables have turned to some degree with the imminent release of Ps exclusive titles like "The Order 1886" and "Bloodborne". With Sony now seemingly fighting back, they've done something unexpected - publishing a complete list of all their upcoming 2015 game releases.
Many still don't have specific dates yet, dates which aren't expected to be announced until around the time of the big conventions closer to mid-year, but here's the list as it stands now.

Ubisoft revealed today that three games including Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege, Assassins Creed, and The Division will be released this year!
Ubisoft is hosting a conference call at the moment and has revealed all three games are on schedule for this year. Rainbow Six Siege is the most exciting title for me, and it even made out most anticipated games of the year list!
Others may be excited about the somewhat secretive The Division, but what we have seen looks amazing! Of course Assassins Creed falls in line with their yearly release of the franchise.
Ubisoft also noted that sales are up 60% thanks to the success of new IP's such as Watch Dogs. They hope The Division carries this success and plan to utilize them even further. Ubisoft also noted that with strong next generation console sales they expect software sales to continue increasing with the install base. »

Tom Powter asks whether the future of video games is a fragmented, broken mess…
There was a time not all that long ago when video games were sold to eager gamers as a complete package. You’d stroll into your nearest store, slap £40 on the counter and walk away with a generally polished title – when it was done, it was done and that was that. There wasn’t any Dlc, and you didn’t have to worry about the servers breaking because they weren’t there. They were simpler times, and people today often look back upon them with a hint of nostalgia and yes, longing.
Gaming today, is not the gaming of yesterday.
Today, our favourite past time is a very different beast. It can often be found broken up into bite-size chunks, often sold to you after you’ve already purchased supposedly a full game. It can often »
