Rainbow Six Extraction Buddy Pass Explained

If you own a full copy of Rainbow Six Extraction you will receive 2 ‘Buddy Tokens’, which allow you to invite up to two of your friends to the game, even if they don’t own it.

The Buddy Pass allows you to invite friends from other platforms too, but will only allow your friends to access a trial version of the game for 14 days before a full purchase must be made to continue playing.

Once the feature is available, you simply need to get your friends to download the trial version of the game on their respective platforms, then use the in-game friend list to invite them to your game. Check out the image below for more details.
