In order to insure the best user experience for Rainbow Six: Siege, the Montreal User Research Lab had to re think the way they tested the game, bringing playtests and analytics to a whole new level: the live test experience.
Using their knowledge and experience on the Rainbow Six Siege production, the speakers will:
• Present succinctly the Rainbow Six franchise and its history
• Describe user research challenges of a multiplayer focused game
• Discuss the limitations of classic user tests
• Introduce live tests – Closed Alpha, Closed Beta, and Open Beta
o The impacts on the user research, analytics, and production pipelines
o The impacts on reporting and how user research analytics helped improve the game
• Show the changes in terms of communication to all parties
• Give insights on the first months post launch, and potentially how post launch data is or can be used as live test data.
