What is Rainbow Six Mobile gameplay like? 

Rainbow Six Siege Mobile is still somewhat of a mystery. But developers recently explained that Rainbow Six Mobile will be similar to the PC version with attackers and defenders. But it's not meant to replace the PC version. Instead, it's a way to get short bursts of the game fans love. 

"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," developers said

One of the insiders stated: "It will be a mobile game that Siege fans will love." 

What maps are in Rainbow Six Mobile?

Bank and Border are currently the only maps revealed to be in the mobile version of Rainbow Six Mobile. Bank is located in the middle of a highly populated city, giving attackers the challenge of infiltrating a heavily fortified bank. Border is a "deadly outpost" between two countries. 

More maps will be coming soon.
