In great news for the entire Tom Clancy’s gaming community, Ubisoft recently announced the third Crisis Event for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Extraction, Eclipse, which is available from today until September 1.
Something we find quite curious is that 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 casts the 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 motion-detecting pulses within a radius. In each subzone, players must weaken the Neoplasm with a stealth takedown.
If movement is detected, the neoplasm will flee to the next subzone, making the next encounter more and more difficult. 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. Along with Eclipse, Rainbow Six Operator Echo joins the REACT team today. Known for her efficiency in gathering information, Echo will be a valuable addition to the Rainbow Six Extraction roster in both Eclipse and the main game.
Echo’s Yokai drone transmits a video feed to her and can fire ultrasonic blasts that disorient 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 draw in archaics and be remotely detonated to destroy or stun enemies. It can also self detonate after a set period of time. In general, players can discover more exciting content as they delve deeper into the Eclipse event.
