In particular, the objective of the catwalk seems particularly knotty. In it, teams of players of one to three players face something called a Protean, an Archæn variant that essentially mimics some of the form and functions of playable operators. It’s hard to understand how deadly these Proteans are from the gameplay trailer, but if this is just a preview of what’s to come, it seems fair to say that the Proteans will be among the toughest opponents players will face.
As stated above, Rainbow Six Extraction is slated for release in January 2022 for Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PlayStation 5, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Amazon Luna, Google Stadia, and PC through the Ubisoft Store and the Ubisoft + subscription service.
