Extraction is a game mode featured in the Outer Rim expansion pack. It is currently only playable on the Outer Rim maps.
At the start of the game, there will be 3 phases present at the top of the screen. The color will depend on which faction the player is fighting on, blue for the Rebels, red for the Empire.
The objective for the Rebels is to defend a cargo as it reaches 3 checkpoints, while the Empire defends the cargo from reaching the checkpoints until time runs out. The timer is given 5 minutes at the beginning of the game, and will be given another 5 minutes after a checkpoint has been reached.
Hero pickups are present throughout the game:
Rebels are given one hero at the beginning, before the Empire gets a hero after the first checkpoint has been reached. When the shipment passes the second checkpoint, a transport will dock at the hangar, as the Rebels are close to their destination. Once the shipment passes all three checkpoints, a cut-scene will play with the transport taking off.
The Imperials get extra points if they stop the shuttle at phase 1, phase 2, or phase 3. The lower the phase, the higher the point count.
This game mode originally was played the least if the player joined any of the 12 player games, before an update allowed the chances for the play-ability of the game mode to be increased.
This is the second new game mode added via DLC.
