RAINBOW SIX EXTRACTION Will Be Day One On Xbox Game Pass
Tom Clancy‘s Rainbow Six Extraction will be launching on day one on Xbox Game Pass this month. It was also announced that Ubisoft+ will be arriving on Xbox as well.
Ubisoft revealed the news today on Twitter and shortly after revealing that the newest entry in the popular FPS would be joining Xbox Game Pass and Game Pass for PC on the game’s launch on January 20th, 2022.
Thanks to Ubisoft+, too, players will soon be able to play more than 100 Ubisoft games, including DLC for new titles and classics like Assassin’s Creed, as well as receive unique rewards like customization items, boosters, and other in-game perks. The Ubisoft+ service is already available on Stadia, Amazon Luna, and PC and now Xbox is the next platform to host the service.
Ubisoft also teased other titles from the developer to join Game Pass, but no titles were revealed by name, but a good guess would be that the next entry in the Assassin’s Creed franchise (Assassin’s Creed Infinity) could be the next big day one launch on Game Pass. Ubisoft’s senior vice president of Strategic Partnerships and Business Development Chris Early said in a press release:
“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 offers 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.”
Rainbow Six Extraction is a tactical (up to) three-player co-op PvE FPS where players select operators and fight against a deadly alien threat known as the Archaens. It represents a big shift from the more team-based PVP experience that is Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege.
