The REACT team faces a new crisis. You know, those special events where we have to face a threat in three parts and where we can earn new rewards. We are talking about Eclipse, the new crisis event of Rainbow Six Extraction which is already available in the game.
You can check out a gameplay trailer for the new event below:
What is the event?
Living up to its name, the ‘Eclipse’ crisis event of Rainbow Six Extraction it will be very dark. It takes place on the ‘Truth or Consequences’ map, which is completely submerged in shadows. The source of this darkness is the Neoplasm, a threat that sends out pulses that detect movement within a radius.
To progress from subzone to subzone, players will need to restore power to a generator while facing an onslaught of Archaea. The crisis culminates in the third subzone, where players must remove the neoplasm for good and reach the extraction point safely.
New Operator: Echo
Along with this event comes a very well known member of Rainbow to REACT: Echo. His Yokai drone transmits video to him and can fire ultrasonic blasts that disorient all targets it hits.
Also arriving is a new piece of REACT technology, the aura grenade. This new piece of REACT tech can draw in archaics and be remotely detonated to destroy or stun enemies. It can also self detonate after a set amount of time.
The Aura Grenade can be unlocked by completing the quest, ‘Sneak Kill 50 Archæans‘ in any game mode.
When does the ‘Eclipse’ crisis event arrive and until what date will it be available in Rainbow Six Extraction?
This event is available from Thursday August 11 and we can enjoy it until Thursday September 1, 2022. As the days progress, you will continue to receive more content. Currently we can earn new cosmetic items and themed pendants as rewards.
