Ubisoft has added the first Crisis event to Rainbow Six Extraction, a limited-time mode that is free for all players and available to play now with Game Pass on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, and PC. If you haven’t tried the game yet, it is a great first-person shooter experience that focuses on co-op gameplay with up to three players. You can see how we found Rainbow Six Extraction in our review HERE.
Faced with an evolved form of Sprawl that has covered an entire containment area, the Operators of REACT must plant canisters at strategic locations and defend them against onslaughts of enemies. Whether they are elites, cloaked, or covered in Blinding Spores, these foes won’t let up; fortunately, a powerful new piece of REACT tech, the Auto Turret, is available to unlock, and a new Operator has joined the crew to add some extra firepower.
Zofia, known as an explosive attacking force in Rainbow Six Siege, is now playable for free in Rainbow Six Extraction. She brings her KS79 Lifeline, a launcher that fires both stun and impact grenades to help you exert control over the battlefield. She is also resilient to all blinding effects and can revive herself, making her a stalwart ally when things get a little too spicy.
This new Operator is here to stay, but the Spillover event isn’t, so you’ll want to get cracking on the special event-specific Studies to unlock some juicy rewards. The Desert Kingsnake outfit, as well as a weapon charm and skin, can be earned by completing specific objectives in the mode, but don’t lose sight of the crown jewel of event rewards: the Auto Turret. Deploy this beauty in the field and it will watch over your flank with a laser sight and deadly firepower. Reposition it as you move through the incursion and keep its ammunition topped up by seeking out REACT Tech supply boxes. There are just under three weeks to enjoy this content, so jump on it whilst you have the opportunity.
