Ubisoft’s newest Rainbow Six tactical shooter aims to add a horror twist to the successful Siege formula. This is all the information known about Rainbow Six Extraction, including its release date, whether it’s on Game Pass, and its crossplay status.

The Rainbow Six division of Ubisoft has proven to be very successful since the game’s first entry in 1998. The franchise built up a great following during the early 2000s and gained serious traction with the R6 Vegas games. The series recently hit new heights thanks to the unbelievable success of Rainbow Six Siege too.

But whilst Siege continues to grow from strength to strength, Ubisoft is also making another game in the franchise – Extraction. Focusing less on human threats, Rainbow Six Extraction is favoring infected, less humanlike foes.

We’ve put together a handy guide that contains all the important information about Rainbow Six Extraction so far and what we can expect.

Rainbow Six Extraction release date

The release of the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S means for the first year or so people will be wondering which platforms a game will appear on.

Unless you’re exclusively a Nintendo Switch owner, then it will be music to your ears that Rainbow Six Siege will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, Stadia, and PC.

Does Rainbow Six Extraction have crossplay?

Rainbow Six Extraction will include full crossplay across all platforms, so you don’t need to worry about which system your friends are on.

Also, the Buddy System is crossplay too, so your friends on other platforms can play with you even if they don’t own the game.

Is Rainbow Six Extraction on Xbox Game Pass?

Whereas, Extraction aims to shake up the Rainbow Six Siege formula by having teams comprised of three Operators work together to take down waves of infected enemies in full-on PVE action.

The Ubisoft Forward event during E3 2021 brought a deep dive trailer that showed the community a great deal of what they can expect when they play Rainbow Six Extraction.

You can check out the official gameplay reveal for Rainbow Six Extraction below:

It’s also been confirmed that Rainbow Six Extraction will have at least 18 Operators, similar to the system used in Rainbow Six Siege, and they will have their own abilities as well.

The official Rainbow Six Extraction website lists 12 ones that we know of and keeps the other six a secret for now.

How to complete TOTY Honourable Mentions Lautaro Martinez SBC in FIFA 22

Lautaro Martinez is a fantastic ST in FIFA 22, and FUT players are going to want to complete his TOTY Honourable Mentions SBC.

Martinez Honourable Mentions SBC

Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez has received an Honourable Mentions SBC to go along with the 15 players included in the promo’s squad. Here’s how you can complete the Lautaro Martinez FIFA 22 TOTY Honourable Mentions SBC.

The Honourable Mentions promo is set to accompany the TOTY by highlighting incredible players that just missed the cut. Cristiano Ronaldo joins the TOTY as the 12th Man, while 15 players make up the Honourable Mentions squad.

In addition to these 15 players, FUT fans will have the chance to snap up more Honourable Mentions via Objectives and SBCs. Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez is one of the players up for grabs.

Ultimate Team players will be required to submit three squads to get their hands on this well-rounded ST, and we’ve got the cheapest solution to give you a hand.

Martinez may lack the ability to set up your forward players as a shoot-first striker but he’ll certainly bag a lot of goals thanks to his impressive finishing stats and dynamic feel in-game. Martinez also benefits from 4* skills and 4* weak foot which adds to his bag of tricks.

Considering the price, players are getting a top-tier finisher at fair value. His agility and dribbling will not let you down. However, his Serie A allegiance makes him difficult to fit into meta squads if you don’t also use some Argentine players.

Cheapest way to complete Honourable Mentions Martinez SBC in FIFA 22

To complete this SBC players will need to give up three squads: Tactical Emulation, Argentina, and Serie A TIM. With a value of around 236,000 coins, Martinez should be well within reach for the majority of Ultimate Team players. This FIFA 22 SBC is a must for Serie A enthusiasts.

You can check out the cheapest solutions below.

Tactical Emulation requirements

  • # of players from Inter Milan: Min 1
  • # of TOTW players: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 84
  • Team Chemistry: Min 75

The Lautaro Martinez TOTY Honourable Mentions SBC is available until February 28, so you’ll have plenty of time to complete this affordable set.

Keep in mind, TOTW players are overpriced at the moment due to active SBCs requiring a ton of in-form players but you can always try to snipe some for cheap.
