Rainbow Six Extraction gets a new release date
The cooperative shooter will arrive in January 2022
Ubisoft has announced that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction will release on January 20, 2022.
The game will launch with a cross-play Buddy Pass system, letting friends play for free for a limited time, along with full cross-play, cross-save, and cross-progression on all platforms.
Starting today, players can pre-order the Standard Edition for the new lower price of $49.99. Each edition of Extraction will unlock two Buddy Pass tokens, allowing players to invite their friends to play with them for free up to 14 days across most platforms. During the two weeks, any progression their squad members earn will transfer over when they purchase the full game. All pre-orders will also unlock the Orbital Decay Cosmetic Bundle in Extraction. The Deluxe Edition, which includes everything from the Standard Edition alongside three bonus packs, is also available to pre-order for $69.99.
Everyone who plays both Rainbow Six Siege and Rainbow Six Extraction will receive the United Front bundle, which contains four exclusive gearsets, split between both games, and will instantly unlock Extraction’s entire roster of 18 operators in Siege.
With development led by Ubisoft Montreal, Rainbow Six Extraction recruits players to join the Rainbow Exogenous Analysis & Containment Team (REACT) and assemble a one to three-player squad of operators from Rainbow Six Siege to face mysterious alien creatures known as Archæans. The game will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PlayStation 5, PlayStation 4, Amazon Luna, Stadia, the Ubisoft Store on Windows PC and Ubisoft+, the Ubisoft subscription service.
