Rainbow Six Extraction Release Date Revealed for September

Extraction builds on the playable operators and abilities of Siege, but takes them into a new, cooperative context. Rather than face off against another team of players, Extraction players must make their way into facilities controlled by AI monsters called Archaeans. These creatures come in a wide variety of types, each with different abilities such as rooting operators in place, or firing armor piercing projectiles.

On missions, three-player teams are tasked with collecting samples of Archaean tissue, recovering lost operators, and hunting down specific Archaeans.

Every time players head out on one of these missions, they risk losing the operator they're playing temporarily. If they do, their teammates will have to save them in a separate mission.

The game will also support cross-platform play and progression in addition to giving players bonus content for owning both Siege and Extraction.
