Rainbow Six Mobile takes Siege to Android and iOS

Another popular first-person shooter is making its way to mobile devices, this time, courtesy of Ubisoft. The developer’s tactical FPS, Rainbow Six Siege is coming to Android and iOS devices as Rainbow Six Mobile.

Welcome Operators to #Rainbow6Mobile!@Rainbow6Mobile will bring the same fast paced tactical shooter gameplay to your devices.

Choose your Operator, secure your location as a Defender or lead an assault as an Attacker to win! ⚔️ 🛡

— Ubisoft (@Ubisoft) April 5, 2022

Today’s announcement came with a trailer, but not a release date. It seems that Rainbow Six Mobile will largely play the same as its big-screen counterpart, complete with unique characters for both attacking and defending.

Only two of the game’s maps have been revealed so far, Bank and Border, though others will be added in future updates for the game. And just like in SiegeRainbow Six Mobile players will be able to transform those maps through barricades or explosives to create new opportunities.

Anyone who wants to play the game before it releases can also register for a closed beta on the game’s website. That beta will include the two maps shown off previously, as well as 10 operators — five offensive and five defensive — for players to use. In an interview with GameSpotRainbow Six Mobile‘s developers revealed that the game will have between 18 and 22 operators when it eventually launches. Rainbow Six Mobile‘s release date has not been shared.

Rainbow Six Siege is the latest in a growing number of first-person shooters to make the leap to mobile devices. EA’s Apex Legends is slowly creeping onto Android and iOS devices as Apex Legends Mobile while Activision has been looking to grow its presence on the platform with a mobile version of Call of Duty: Warzone.

Rainbow Six Extraction: How to rescue MIA Operators
Operators prepare to move into sub zone in Rainbow Six Extraction.

The new threat, called Archaeans, in Rainbow Six Extraction are more than just mindless alien parasite things. These creepy creatures have begun infecting and taking over various regions in the world, which are the zones you and your team are sent into to complete various tasks in the hopes of finding a way to get rid of them once and for all. Your team consists of a total of 18 iconic Operators taken from Rainbow Six Siege, only now made a part of the Rainbow Exogenous Analysis and Containment Team, or REACT for short. You can select your Operator of choice and go on these missions solo, or in a team of up to three others. These Archaeans aren't messing around, though, and failing to extract is bound to happen sooner or later.

Unlike in Rainbow Six Siege, Operators don't immediately come back to life if they get taken out during a mission. If you lose your favorite character, they're gone until you rescue them by going on a special MIA Rescue mission. These aren't easy, and can be even harder if you've lost your most powerful Operator.
