Zombies are all the rage in video games, with even non-horror heavyweights such as Call of Duty and Red Dead Redemption adding undead enemies to their usually grounded premises. Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six is the latest franchise to get a scary spin-off, this time pitting an alien parasite against the poor human race…
Here’s everything we know about this genre-hopping game.
When is Rainbow Six: Quarantine released?

What’s Rainbow Six: Quarantine about?
Moving away from the usual soldiers vs. terrorist premise of the Rainbow Six franchise, Quarantine takes the popular Outbreak limited event from Rainbow Six Siege and turns it into an entire standalone game. Set several years in the future, an alien parasite has been unleashed upon the world and it is up to the Rainbow Six team to drop into quarantine zones to fight this mutating threat.
The game will be a three-player co-op shooter, encouraging teamwork as you fight against alien monsters rather than each other. The action, weapons and gadgets are said to be similar to previous entry Rainbow Six Siege, though of course with a horror twist.
