Does Rainbow Six Extraction have a single player campaign?
Can you play the new Rainbow Six Siege game solo and is there a campaign?
The elite operators of Rainbow Six are now united to face a common enemy: a highly lethal threat known as the Archeans. Assemble your team and risk everything in tense incursions in the containment zone. Knowledge, cooperation, and a tactical approach are your best weapons. Band together and put everything on the line as you take on this unknown enemy.
The tactical co-op shooter is back and this time even bigger than before. With 12 containment zones across the US – all of which are dominated by the Parasite – leads to a hectic and dangerous firefight. Taking on a similar playstyle as Left 4 Dead and Back 4 Blood style games, players fight for survival whilst strategizing and taking on the enemies with their curated team. You play inn teams of three as you infiltrate alien infested areas and locations, all the while you complete various tasks and objectives.
Rainbow Six Extraction is a Ubisoft game, released on January 20th, 2022. It’s currently on pretty much all platforms except for the Switch: Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Amazon Luna, Google Stadia, Xbox One and Xbox Series X and Series S.
Much like the last addition to Rainbow Six’s franchise, Siege, Extraction will not feature a campaign in the conventional way. Rather, the game does have a series of missions that can be played solo. The game can certainly be enjoyed solo, and although it’s rooted towards a multiplayer group, solo players can still derive enjoyment from the overall experience. The levels will scale according to the number of players, so if you’re one then the difficulty level will be completely reasonable. You may get swarmed but at the very least, you won’t feel like it’s unfair.
Playing solo won’t mean you’ll miss out on anything either. You’ll still complete the same levels and get the same amount of story content. And whilst playing solo can have its challenges, it can also be just as rewarding – if not more!
So short answer? Yes and no. There’s not really a major narrative arc to this game, or any of the Rainbow Six ones, but that’s not to say there’s no story whatsoever. Basically, if you’re the type of person who wants to experience a game on your own to really enjoy the story first, and then play with friends. You won’t need to worry about that here, you’ll get just as much by playing with your friends as you would without.
