The Rainbow Six Extraction PC system requirements have been unveiled, confirming you won't need a futuristic computer to run the sci-fi co-op shooter reasonably well. 

Ubisoft didn't outline exactly what performance PC gamers can expect at different graphical levels, but it's safe to assume we're shooting for 60+ FPS at all tiers. Here's how the Rainbow Six Extraction PC system requirements vary between graphics targets.

Rainbow Six Extraction pits the operators of the shooter's familiar universe against a new alien threat, emphasizing objective-based co-op with plenty of extraction-type rescue missions. It will launch on PC (with Stadia and Amazon Luna support), PS5, PS4, Xbox Series X, and Xbox One on January 20, 2022. Its cross-play "Buddy Pass" system will allow players to invite up to two friends (or three, for deluxe edition buyers) to play with them for up to two weeks at no extra cost, with all progress carrying over to the full game if those friends decide to buy it themselves.
