Ubisoft has announced that Rainbow Six Extraction’s third Crisis Event, Eclipse, is available till 1 September. In addition to the content from the last two Crisis Events, this limited-time event continues to add more post-launch content for players to enjoy. Eclipse forces operators into partial darkness as they venture into three sub-zones against a new threat.
As operators dive deeper into the Truth or Consequences map, they will encounter the source of the darkness: the Neoplasm, a threat that sends out pulses that detect movement within a radius. In each sub-zone, players must weaken the Neoplasm with a stealthy takedown. If movement is detected, the Neoplasm will flee to the next sub-zone, making the next encounter increasingly difficult.
To progress from sub-zone to sub-zone, players will have to restore power to a generator while facing an onslaught of Archæans. The crisis climaxes in the third sub-zone, where players must eliminate the Neoplasm for good and make it to the extraction point safely.
Alongside Eclipse, Rainbow Six Operator Echo joins the REACT Team today. Known for his efficiency in gathering intel, Echo will be a valuable addition to the Rainbow Six Extraction roster both in Eclipse and the main game. Echo’s Yokai drone transmits a video feed to him and can fire ultrasonic bursts that disorients all targets it hits.
A new piece of REACT tech, the Aura Grenade, is also available for players to unlock. The Aura Grenade can be unlocked by completing the quest, ‘Stealth Kill 50 Archæans,’ and can be completed in any game mode. This new piece of REACT tech can lure Archæans and be remotely detonated to obliterate or stun enemies. It can also self-detonate after a set amount of time.
Overall, players can discover more exciting content as they delve deeper into the Eclipse event:
- The New Aura Grenade REACT Tech
- The New Operator Echo
- New cosmetic items
- The New Neoplasm enemy
- Themed Charms for players to keep
- Extra XP towards Milestone Progression
Eclipse is the newest content added to Rainbow Six Extraction, and players can look forward to more in the future. Players can jump in now with their squad via Game Pass on Xbox Series X | S, Xbox One, and Windows PC, as well as on PlayStation5, PlayStation4, Stadia, Amazon Luna, Ubisoft+, the Ubisoft Store, and the Epic Games Store.
