Rainbow Six Extraction Promises Free Post-Launch Content

Matt Lorrigan

Ubisoft has announced that a “sizeable amount” of the post-launch content for Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction will be entirely free, and revealed the game will include an evolving endgame.

The tactical shooter will include a weekly challenge mode called Maelstrom Protocol, with tiered ranks for the “most skilled” Rainbow Six players. Assignments will also be available, as weekly modes with unique gameplay modifiers. Veteran Mode, for example, has no HUD, limited ammo, and friendly fire.

On top of that, Crisis Events will be limited-time events that alter the game with themed content, including new Operators or a new parasitic enemy to take out. The game's first Crisis Event, Spillover, will see players wiping out mass colonies of the Sprawl, with REACT Tech, new cosmetics, and lore as rewards. While Maelstrom Protocols and Assignments will be available at launch, Crisis Events will be coming after.

Ubisoft seems to be pushing Rainbow Six Extraction hard, possibly due to the game's lukewarm reception so far. The French publisher recently announced that the game will be launching at a budget $39.99 / £33.99 price point, and will include two Buddy Passes to allow two friends to play for free for 14 days.

Rainbow Six Extraction is coming to Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, and PC on 20th January 2022.

  • Being a Rainbow Six game and a Siege spin-off, friendly fire should be in every mode, not just special modes.
  • Kinda gives CoD: Ghosts extinction mode vibes and I'm for it
