Even if your PC is not the most powerful, there’s good news: Rainbow Six Extraction’s requirements are not too demanding. It would help if you could handle Extraction with a smaller GPU and RAM machine.
Extraction also offers a buddy system. Each copy of the game includes two game tokens, which give you and your friend access for 14 days. Ubisoft has just made it clear that the buddy pass system will not be available at launch. This is to ensure that all players have access to the game. Ubisoft states that eliminating barriers to playing with friends and being “dedicated” to launching your two friend invitations very soon, but it does not specify when.
