Ubisoft isn’t announcing exactly when its subscription service will arrive on Xbox, only that it “will be coming to Xbox in the future,” according to Ubisoft community manager Daniel O’Connor. Microsoft added EA’s Play subscription service to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass in 2020, but Ubisoft says Ubisoft Plus on Xbox “will be a separate subscription from Game Pass.”
Rainbow Six: Extraction will be available on Xbox Game Pass at launch, as part of its Ubisoft Plus subscription programme. Ubisoft Plus is a $14.99 a month subscription service that gives you access to over 100 Ubisoft games, including titles like Far Cry 6.
Rainbow Six: Extraction is a tactical first-person shooter that allows friends to form a squad of up to three players or play solo fighting off what’s described as an “unpredictable” player vs. enemies experience. Rainbow Six: Extraction launches on January 20th on Xbox, PlayStation, PC, Google Stadia, and Amazon Luna. Update, January 5th 1PM ET: Article updated with Ubisoft Twitter comment on Ubisoft Plus being separate to Xbox Game Pass.
Rainbow Six: Extraction is also launching on day one with Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate when it releases on January 20th. It’s the first major addition to Xbox Game Pass for 2022, after Microsoft revealed earlier this week that Mass Effect Legendary Edition, The Anacrusis, and Spelunky 2 are making their way to Xbox Game Pass soon.
