Ubisoft has announced that its upcoming co-op FPS Rainbow Six Extraction will be launching on day one for Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass. Rainbow Six Siege will also be coming to Xbox Game Pass Ultimate and PC Game Pass subscribers on the same day. That’s not all though – Ubisoft+, the publisher’s subscription service with over 100 titles, will also be coming to Xbox in the future.
Of course, whether it will be included with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (like EA Play) is currently unknown. In the announcement post, senior VP of strategic partnerships and business development Chris Early said, “By making Rainbow Six Extraction available to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members on the day and date of its launch via Xbox Game Pass, we’re demonstrating that we believe in the value and choice that game subscriptions offer to players. 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.”
Releasing on January 20th for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4, PS5, PC and Google Stadia, Rainbow Six Extraction focuses on REACT, a team of Operators, as they battle the alien threat of the Archaeans. Missions take place across four major locations with three sub-zones and random objectives to complete in each. Completing objectives nets rewards and players can either choose to extract or venture to the next sub-zone for more rewards (though it will be tougher).
Ubisoft recently detailed the game’s PC requirements (which includes 85 GB of storage space for installation). Check them out here and stay tuned for more details.
