What is Rainbow Six: Quarantine? R6 Siege had a limited-time event back in 2018 called Outbreak – it was a PvE game mode that pitted the hardened operators of Siege against an unknown, infected opposition. Well, it was so popular that Ubisoft decided to make an entire game with the same premise, and now we have Quarantine – or, we did for a bit, anyway. It’s now Extraction, but we’ll talk about that later.

The multiplayer game pits humans against infected and will test your teamwork to the maximum. It brings Rainbow Six’s signature destruction with it, too, so you don’t necessarily have to enter a building through the door… if you know what we mean.
