Today, Ubisoft announced that it would bring Ubisoft+, its subscription service, to the Xbox platform in the future. The company also shared that it will offer Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction, a tactical co-op FPS that brings a whole new squad-based PvE experience to the millions of players in the Rainbow Six universe and beyond, to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members when the game launches on January 20.
Ubisoft+ brings players more than 100 Ubisoft games — including the latest releases, DLC, and classic games — and rewards which include customization items, boosters, and other in-game perks. Ubisoft+ is currently available on PC, Stadia, and Amazon Luna and soon will be available on Xbox.
“By making Rainbow Six Extraction available to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members on the day and date of its launch, we’re demonstrating that we believe in the value and choice that game subscriptions offer to players,” said Chris Early, Senior Vice President of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development at Ubisoft. “Rainbow Six Extraction for Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members is just the beginning. Ultimately, we will offer the Ubisoft+ subscription service to Xbox owners so that they can enjoy the full extent of our Ubisoft+ game library, including new releases, on their consoles.”
When Rainbow Six Extraction releases on January 20, Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members can jump into this intense, thrilling, and unpredictable PvE co-op experience to take on dynamic incursions of up to three players. Rainbow Six Extraction builds on all the tactical gameplay elements introduced in Rainbow Six Siege. Ubisoft shared that Siege also will be available for PC Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate members starting January 20 and will see its availability on Xbox Game Pass extended.
“With Rainbow Six Extraction, Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members are getting another blockbuster added to their library on the same day the title launches,” said Sarah Bond, Corporate Vice President, Game Creator Experience and Ecosystem at Xbox. “And because Rainbow Six Siege will be on both Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass as well, the Rainbow Six community and fans of tactical shooters will have plenty to look forward to playing together, no matter where they play.”
