The Outbreak event in Rainbow Six: Siege all the way back in 2018 was a ton of fun. It presented the tactical shooter in a new light, offering something different to players that might have wanted a more fulfilling PvE experience than the tepid “terrorist hunt” offering in the base game. Ubisoft clearly felt there was enough promise in the idea to not only bring it back but spin it off into a standalone experience, but does it hold up?

Rainbow Six: Extraction is a three-player zombie-type survival game where you join REACT to help curb an alien parasite that’s spreading across the United States. In fact, Extraction is a direct continuation of the Siege event, using that original setting – Truth or Consequences, New Mexico – as ground zero. Actually, there’s a lot to this game that will be familiar if you’ve spent any time with Siege. It allows you to take the mantle of 18 operators, all brought over from Siege, and all retaining their guns and gadgets from the tactical shooter. Curiously, this includes Tachanka with his turret, rather than his current grenade launcher gadget.
