Ubisoft has finally revealed the official gameplay video of Rainbow Six: Extraction in yesterday’s Forward event, and now we also have a confirmed release date for this upcoming spinoff to Rainbow Six Siege.
During its E3 2021 Ubisoft Forward presentation, Ubisoft confirmed that Rainbow Six: Extraction will finally release on September 16th, after being postponed earlier in the year.
The game will be a tactical co-op shooter, bringing several elements from the “Outbreak” LTM that was introduced in Rainbow Six Siege’s Operation Chimera. Watch the reveal trailer below:
“As the next mainline game in the Rainbow Six franchise, Extraction offers plenty of exciting new features while building on tactical gameplay elements introduced in Rainbow Six Siege. To confront and eventually contain a growing alien threat known as Archæans, your squad can choose from a roster of 18 Rainbow Six Operators, each with their own set of gadgets, weapons, and abilities. Try different combinations of Operators to open new strategies to approach the Archæan threat in each of Extraction’s 12 maps. Set across four regions in the United States, these maps feature procedurally generated challenges, a diverse set of enemies, and infestations with increasing difficulty the further you go in the map, to keep your REACT squad on its toes and test your teamwork.” – Ubisoft.
Within the containment zone, if an operator is downed, a side mission prompt will appear to extract your Missing in Action (MIA) operator. While solo-play is possible, it is advised to bring some friends with you on the action.
Ubisoft has also confirmed that Rainbow Six Extraction will feature cross-play across all platforms, so PC Siege players will be able to enjoy this title with their friends on other platforms.
Rainbow Six Extraction is coming to Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, the Ubisoft Store on Windows PC, and Stadia on September 16. Existing Siege players will also have the entire roster of 18 Operators unlocked for them.
