    The latest entry to Rainbow Six franchise, Extraction is directly based on a limited-time mode first seen in Rainbow Six Siege. Players in teams of three must work together and infiltrate an alien-infested location to complete objectives, such as collecting samples, extracting materials from computers, and gathering intel. The game takes a slower, tactical, and methodical approach to the horde genre as Extraction enables players to complete objectives to any playstyle that suits them. In addition, the game challenges players as dying in the game results in certain operators being unplayable until they either rescued in a separate mission or fully recovered.
