Rainbow Six Extraction is Out Now For Xbox Game Pass, Buddy Pass Program 'On Hold'

Richard Walker

Ubisoft has announced that Rainbow Six Extraction is out now, offering squad-based co-op alien shooting for up to three players, as eighteen playable Operators from Rainbow Six Siege. Featuring cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-save, Extraction features four environments infested with extra-terrestrial threats to tackle.

Fighting the parasitic Archæans, you'll need to complete various objectives across containment zones in New York, San Francisco, Alaska, and New Mexico, choosing a unique Operator with their own individual weapons and gadgets in high-stakes missions. Should your Operator fall, they'll go MIA and need recovering during your next run.

Ubisoft has also stated that the ‘Buddy Pass’ program, which enables two friends to play co-op online for 14 days, with only one requiring the game, is on hold until “shortly after launch” in order to “ensure a smooth rollout for all players”. Free post-launch content for the game is also in the pipeline.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction is available now for Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, PC, Stadia, and Luna, priced $39.99/£44.99, and also playable via Xbox Game Pass. You can check out our Rainbow Six Extraction review here.

  • Isn't there enough PvE crap out there? No need for another one. At least for me.
  • @SanguinDies, if you haven't noticed, all AAA publishers, and some lower tiered publishers love chasing trends, even if they are tired, stale, over-saturated ones. They'll beat that dead horse until the stick breaks, and then use their fist until they're down to exposed bone.

    This is also Ubisoft we're talking about here... Look up copy/paste in a dictionary and it just has a picture of Ubisoft's logo.
