Rainbow Six Extraction Free Post-Launch Content Detailed

January 20 marks the launch of Rainbow Six Extraction, and in the weeks and months following, a slate of free post-launch content will challenge Operators in new and exciting ways. From limited-time Crisis Events and weekly Assignments to the ultimate gauntlet of Maelstrom Protocol, this free content will offer new ways to play and new rewards to unlock.

Maelstrom Protocol is a challenge mode, available at launch and meant for seasoned Rainbow Six Extraction Operators. It lays out nine consecutive subzones, each increasing in difficulty with tougher enemies and less time to complete your objectives. Players will earn points as they play and, at the end of each subzone, have the chance to extract and bank those points, or push on for a bigger payout. Accumulate points to rise through the ranks – Bronze, Silver, Gold, Platinum, Diamond – to earn REACT credits and special headgear to show other Operators how well you met the challenge of Maelstrom Protocol.

Crisis Events will arrive for a limited time only, bringing game-changing parameters to the action, as well as introducing new Operators or Proteans (a nasty Archaean variant that mimics an Operator and has special abilities). The first event, Spillover, will introduce an evolved version of the Sprawl for players to contend with as they take on Archaean hordes. Exclusive REACT tech, new cosmetics, and more will be available to unlock during Crisis Events. Furthermore, weekly Assignments will offer gameplay modifiers to test your skills in new ways, such as Veteran Mode, which removes the HUD, gives you limited ammo, and enables friendly fire.

Rainbow Six Extraction is launching on January 20 with Buddy Pass and a new price. It will feature cross-play, cross-progression, and cross-save, and will be available on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One, PS5, PS4, Amazon Luna, Stadia, and the Ubisoft Store on PC, as well as via Ubisoft+.
