Double Renown (2x renown bonus) event starts Friday 8:00PM EST.
Ubisoft's 5v5 tactical shooter, 'Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege' is right in the middle of a closed beta on the PS4, Xbox One and PC. What makes it the middle is the decision to extend all the way to October 4th. Ubisoft and the 'Siege' team are citing multiple improvements made during beta as a result of the beta. This includes PvP and Terrorist Hunt matchmaking.
Even more people will be getting access as Ubisoft is "sending emails to all American and European players who have played at least one match in the Closed Beta before 2:00PM EST, September 29th 2015. These emails will contain immediate access codes that can be used by the players to get their friends in the beta. Those keys will be for the same platform as the player who qualified for friend referral. For example, if a player plays on Xbox One, he will receive additional Xbox One keys for his or her friends."
Likewise, to help get new players up to speed, there will be a Double Renown event happening this Friday at 8PM EST.
Ubisoft has a tips trailer for the beta:
