Rainbow Six Extraction, formerly known as Rainbow Six Quarantine, made its gameplay debut during today’s Ubisoft Forward, giving a taste of what to expect when the game launches on September 16. With development being led by Ubisoft Montreal, Rainbow Six Extraction is a PvE co-op experience where you and up to two other players can form a squad composed of Rainbow Six Operators who have joined Ash, Mira, and Thermite to form the Rainbow Exogenous Analysis and Containment Team (REACT).
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.
Of course, it’s not just about adjusting to the world and the Archæan presence – you’ll also need to make some tough decisions. After completing the mission within each containment sub-zone, you’ll have the option to extract your squad and net the rewards you’ve earned so far, or venture deeper into containment and risk what you’ve earned to confront tougher enemies and earn greater rewards. That gamble could mean temporarily losing one of your Operators, caught Missing in Action (MIA) within the containment zone. You’ll have to squad up and launch a rescue mission to recover your MIA Operator. What will your squad risk to complete its mission?
