Rainbow Six Quarantine doesn’t have a release date (or a new name) just yet but all kinds of leaks have been emerging lately. Its technical test was spotted through a Microsoft Store listing. PC requirements for the same were also recently revealed and it seems that one individual has broken NDA to live-stream the test on Facebook.
There are six Operators in the current test – Alibi, Vigil, Ela, Lion, Tachanka and Finka – and the aliens are called Archaeans. Various types of the Archaeans exist with some having bladed limbs to attack with. Players will explore the environment and gather samples while taking care not to alert the Archaeans’ nests (since they can spawn more foes and emit biofilm to slow movement).
Various airlocks allow for transitioning between each section of a zone with the difficulty ramping up further in. If players have gathered enough intel, they can choose to extract or keep going to gather more. Saving Operators who are left behind requires finding and shooting them out of alien trees before taking them to the extraction zone. All in all, it looks very much like Siege’s limited-time Outbreak mode but with several new mechanics at play.
Rainbow Six Quarantine is currently in development for Xbox One, PS4 and PC, but seems to be coming to Xbox Series X/S and PS5 as well. Stay tuned for more details in the meantime.
