Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Extraction is finally available and gives players the chance to test out their skills against a deadly and mutating alien threat. This new tactical PvE co-op experience features full cross-play, cross-save, and cross-progression. The game is available on PC, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia. It's also playable on both Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass.

Meet the Operators

In the game, players get to choose from a line-up of 18 Operators from Rainbow Six Siege. They've all been reworked and now have new abilities and attributes. Nomad, for example, initially makes use of the AK-74M at the start and will unlock additional weapons throughout the game. She can shoot proximity mines and knock back enemies caught in the blast. Then, there's Sledge who starts off with the M590A1 shotgun and whose ability allows him to wield a hammer that can stun parasites as well as destroy walls to create new paths.

There's the Tormentor which can produce a barrage of projectiles while being able to shapeshift quickly in and out of Sprawl to assault its target.
