Rainbow Six Extraction expands its Buddy Pass system

Ubisoft /

Rainbow Six Extraction included two Buddy Passes that came with the purchase of the video game. Each Buddy Pass was available to be given out to a friend that was able to download the game and play for free for a total of 14 days. This allowed each owner of the game to invite up to two friends who didn’t own Rainbow Six Extraction and play as a group rather than playing solo. Video games are fun on their own but playing with a group of players make a video game even more fun than it already is. This is great offer on Ubisoft’s end, and they tend to sweeten the deal a bit more.

As Ubisoft has announced on their official Twitter page, the Buddy Pass will be available to all players starting on January 27. Ubisoft is using this Buddy Pass system to broadcast the game to more users in hopes that more players will be likely to purchase the video game after they got a little two-week taste of it.

Once the Buddy Pass invite is accepted, the player will be able to accept an invite from the person who sent them the Buddy Pass in the first place, and they can proceed to play as a group of 2 or 3. Once the Buddy Pass invite has officially been accepted by a player and the full game has been downloaded, they will have a free 14-day free trial. After the 14 days expires, you would have to purchase the full game on your own if you enjoyed the experience and would like to play more of Rainbow Six Extraction.

Other than the announcement that was made by Ubisoft, there really were not many more details as to how long you have to send out your Buddy Passes or any other possible restrictions on it. I would have to assume that there would be no restrictions and you can send out your passes whenever your heart desires, but I can’t fully confirm any of that either. I do know that Ubisoft is using this opportunity to grow their community and get as many people playing the video game as possible.

As someone who plays video games regularly, I can assure you that there are some games that are fun to play solo and some games that are just ten times better when you have a group of buddies to play with. Rainbow Six Extraction is indeed one of those video games that makes the experience much more enjoyable when you play in a group. This is an opportunity to potentially play something you don’t normally play, and you never know if you make like it and make it a franchise you will buy on the regular. So, if someone you know owns Rainbow Six Extraction give them a heads up and let them know you wouldn’t mind joining their squad for a couple weeks.
