Rainbow Six Extraction werd niet door iedereen even enthousiast ontvangen, maar dat belet Ubisoft niet om de game van verse content te blijven voorzien. En maar goed ook, anders zou een online coöp shooter als deze geen lang leven beschoren zijn. De nieuwste update is eergisteren live gegaan en bevat heel wat lekkers voor de fans.

Zo krijgen we dit keer een nieuwe Protean snoodaard voorgeschoteld. Het creatuur in kwestie heet Vigil en kan het uiterlijk en de vaardigheden van spelers nabootsen. Naast deze nieuwe buitenaardse slechterik mogen we tien nieuwe Prestige levels verwachten, alsook een heuse sloot aan bug fixes. De onderstaande lijst maakt je heel wat wijzer.
