After several delays, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction will arrive on January 20, 2022, and the price of the standard edition has been lowered to $39.99 USD.
Ubisoft announced that the PvE shooter spin-off from Rainbow Six Siege will arrive with full cross-play, cross-save, and cross-progression. It will also introduce a cross-play Buddy Pass – every copy of the game comes with two passes to invite other players to play free for 14 days. Any progression made during that time will be transferred to full game if triallists decide to buy the full game.
Alongside the price reduction for the standard edition, the Deluxe edition will now come in at $49.99, and adds three bonus packs. All pre-orders will come with the Orbital Decay Bundle, two costumes and a weapon skin, while players who have played Siege will receive a United Front Bundle, including gearsets that unlock in both Siege and Extraction, and unlocking Extraction’s operators within Siege.
Extraction takes Rainbow Six Siege as a basis, but transforms the competitive shooter in a cooperative one, asking swauds of players to fight off a parasitic alien threat. The game has suffered multiple delays, not to mention a change of name from its original title, Quarantine.
