The world got a fresh glimpse at the newest entry in the Rainbow Six franchise today during Ubisoft Forward E3 2021. Rainbow Six Extraction offers the chance for groups of up to three players to do battle against a new alien threat and will feature operators previously seen in Rainbow Six Siege. Ubisoft has confirmed that the game will support crossplay between the various platforms it will be releasing for.
Rainbow Six Extraction will shine a light on the Rainbow Exogenous Analysis and Containment Team (REACT), a group of specialist operators tasked with eliminating an alien threat known as the Archean. The game is set up exclusively for PvE play with a party size of three. At launch, there will be eighteen different Rainbow Six operators to choose from, each with their own unique skills and tactical equipment. Based on the footage shown during today's Ubisoft Forward E3 2021 event, you'll need all the special equipment you can carry to deal with the Archean.
There will be twelve maps to do battle across, each offering procedurally-generated challenges and increasingly difficult alien opposition. Only the best, most coordinated teams will be able to escape alive with the spoils from combat. Rainbow Six Extraction is scheduled to arrive this September 16 for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series S/X, PC, and Stadia.
