Ubisoft has premiered the first official Rainbow Six Extraction gameplay and announced a September 16 release date for the game.
The gameplay reveal video above and the cinematic trailer below were shown during Ubisoft Forward on Saturday.
Set several years in the future of the Rainbow Six universe, the co-op title sees players team up to combat a mutated alien parasite.
“We took the strong foundations of Rainbow Six: Siege and crafted a modern tactical co-op shooter where you’ll be facing an ever-evolving alien threat,” said creative director Patrik Methé in a video published this month.
“You’ll have plenty of different challenges to overcome but you’ll also have one goal in mind: making sure that nobody gets left behind. It will be up to you and your squad to decide when to push forward, or when to extract.”
Over an hour of Rainbow Six: Extraction gameplay was posted online in March, after users live-streamed footage from Ubisoft’s private technical test.
Players embark in PvE Incursions against alien opponents and must complete various objectives, such as gathering intel, in order to progress. Teams can decide to progress through increasingly difficult map zones, with the chance of extra rewards, or extract at certain points with their loot.
Operators who don’t make it to the extraction point are deemed ‘MIA’ and won’t be available until rescued in a future Incursion.
