Ubisoft Australia has announced Australian players will receive dedicated local servers when Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege releases in December.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will utilise the Microsoft Azure datacentres which are located in Australia, to make sure local players experience the optimal online experience.
“Local servers have been a priority from day one,” said Ubisoft Australia MD Edward Fong.“It is essential that Australian gamers get to experience the same online environment as players across the globe.”
Microsoft Australia’s Cloud & Enterprise lead Toby Bowers said, “Ubisoft’s use of Microsoft Azure datacentres in Australia demonstrates Azure’s cross-platform capabilities and is great news for the gaming community who will enjoy the benefits of a locally hosted environment and support”.
The datacentres used in Australia will also be running during the upcoming closed beta, which begins September 25. Those wanting to take part in the beta, can secure a Beta key here.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege will launch December 1 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
