We’ll finally get a full look at the cooperative Rainbow 6 Siege spinoff during the upcoming U bisoft Forward event.
Rainbow Six Quarantine
Rainbow Six Quarantine was a pretty safe traditional game for a video game in 2019, until a real pandemic swept the world and suddenly everything looked a lot less cool than it did in the early planning sessions. Earlier this year, Ubisoft acknowledged that a new game might be available, but dismissed a report that it would later be rechristened as Rainbow Six Parasite. (We kept saying that anyway because we had to call it something, right?)
Today he finally made a new teaser image: Rainbow Six Quarantine will be called Rainbow Six Extraction.
“You will always face an evolving alien threat,” creative director Patrick Methé says in the video. “There will be many different challenges to overcome. But you will always have one goal in mind: to ensure that no one is left behind. It will be up to you and your team to decide when to push forward or when to withdraw. As you’ll soon discover, Extraction is truly the name of the game.”
There’s some clever quibble there, but it literally has a twist, as the full reveal of Rainbow Six Extraction will take place at the Ubisoft Forward online event, which kicks off June 12 at 12:00 PT/3pm ET . Go further than competing shooters, there’s also a dedicated Twitter account you can follow at R6Extraction .
We already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from extraction. Leaks in March and April revealed that teams of Rainbow Six operators will progress through a series of Left 4 Dead-like sub-missions torn apart by airlocks as they gather information on an alien threat known as archaea. Each new area will be more challenging (and possibly more rewarding) than the previous one, leading to increasingly difficult calls for when to move on and when to save. It also seems possible to recover players who missed the extraction, although it’s not clear how it will work at this point. I guess that’s what the Ubisoft Forward description is for!
