After several delays, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction will finally arrive on January 20, 2022. In addition, Ubisoft has confirmed that the price of the standard edition has been reduced to 39.99 euros.
Ubisoft announced that the Rainbow Six Siege-derived PvE shooter would arrive with full cross-play, cross-save, and cross-progression. It will also feature a cross-play Buddy Pass. The latter means that each game copy comes with two passes to invite other players to play for free for 14 days. Any progression made during that time will carry over to the full game if players decide to purchase the full game.
Along with the price reduction for the standard edition, the Deluxe edition will now be priced at € 49.99 and will add three bonus packages. All pre-orders will come with the Orbital Decay Bundle, two skins, and weapon skin. At the same time, players who have played Siege will receive a United Front Bundle, which includes gearsets that unlock in both Siege and Extraction and unlock the Extraction operators within Siege.
Extraction takes Rainbow Six Siege as its foundation but transforms the competitive shooter into a cooperative one, asking players to fight a parasitic alien threat. The game has suffered multiple delays, not to mention the renaming of its original title, Quarantine.
