Rainbow Six Extraction is out real soon, January 20th in fact, for last gen and current gen platforms. On the Xbox side of things, we recently found out that Extraction will be yet another day one Game Pass title, following recent co-op shooters Back 4 Blood and Aliens: Fireteam Elite. Now, we know how it'll perform across Xbox One, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S.
In an interview with MP1st, Rainbow Six Extraction Technical Director Bruno Lalonde discussed how the title will perform across generations. In short, it's another big frame rate divide.
For old-gen consoles, we are aiming at 30fps solid at 1080p. Next-gen is at 60fps, which is at 4K, HDR, and it will run up to 120fps on high-end PCs.
While this answer doesn't get into the nitty gritty of each system, it does at least tell us the game is aiming for 4K, 60fps on Xbox Series X. We'd expect that resolution target to be lower for Series S, but hopefully the 60fps aim remains in place.
Unfortunately, it looks like you'll have to go down the PC route to hit higher framerates. We have seen numerous next gen console games hit 120fps (including Ubisoft's own Rainbow Six: Siege) but that doesn't appear to be the case with Extraction. If the PC version looks appealing at least you won't have to fork out extra, as Rainbow Six Extraction is also launching day one on PC Game Pass.
What system will you be checking out Rainbow Six Extraction on? Let us know below.
Does it have ray tracing. There have been games on the store that say they have ray tracing but dont... Avengers being one of them.
120 fps is absolutely poontless. I wouldn't sarcifice graohics for more than 60 fps. It's more expensive powerwise and it's not as impactful as 30 to 60 fps lift. I would rather see 40 fps mod like Ratchet and Clank have got.
@Darth_Stofi Agreed, I'd actually like to see 30fps phased out over time as 120hz TVs become the norm, and then 120/40fps games take their place with a 60fps option too.
120/40 could be a great balance for ray tracing and a high resolution being utilised, with the 60 option being smoother but with a slight graphical hit.
I've played some 120 fps games and yeah it feels nice, but the graphical hit hasn't been worth it in the games I've seen so far.
I’m excited to check this game out. Thanks GamePass!
I'm not excited to check this out, but i will anyway. Thanks Game Pass!
@Darth_Stofi meh for shooters I'll definitely take 120hy anyday. For single player games I'll take 60hZ. Or give us performance option I prefer smoother game than just good graphics.
Pretty disappointed about lack of 120hz on Series X. That alone solidifies it as Gamepass only and not one to buy.
