Ubisoft reveals Rainbow Six Extraction system requirements and PC features

In its CES 2022 announcements, one of several games Nvidia confirmed this week is adding DLSS is Rainbow Six Extraction which comes out later this month. At the same time, publisher Ubisoft listed the title’s complete system requirements, which look pretty typical compared to other recent AAA games.

This week Ubisoft listed four resolution tiers of system requirements for Rainbow Six Extraction but did not mention anything about expected framerates. On the low end, the 1080p tier recommends a GTX 960 or a Radeon RX 560. At the 4K level, players need an RTX 3080 or a Radeon 6800XT. That’s on par with similar games like Far Cry 6 and Forza Horizon 5, but Extraction’s 1440p recommendation of an RTX 2060 is a bit lower than what Far Cry 6 wants at that resolution.

The system requirements don’t say whether they take DLSS into account, but Nvidia’s DLSS demo video shows it hitting around 140fps in 4K with the feature enabled. The video doesn’t say whether it’s using DLSS quality or performance mode or even what GPU it’s using, so take it with a grain of marketing salt. Ubisoft also confirmed that Extraction would include Nvidia Reflex, uncapped framerate, support for multiple monitors, and Vulkan.
