Ubisoft announced today that its subscription service, Ubisoft +, will be coming to Xbox Game Pass in the near future. In addition, Ubisoft is launching its latest co-op shooter, Rainbow Six Extraction on the Xbox Game Pass.

Extraction, which launches on January 20, is a three-player PvE co-op title where players battle an alien threat. According to Ubisoft, it will one day be a launch, and Game Pass subscribers can play it on both PC and Xbox. Its predecessor, the Rainbow Six Siege, will be available to PC Game Pass subscribers on the same day.

Chris Early, Ubisoft’s SVP for Strategic Partnerships and Business Development, said in a statement: “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 demonstrate that we believe in the value and choice that gaming subscriptions offer players.Rainbow Six Extraction for Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members is just the beginning.In the end, we will offer the Ubisoft + subscription service to Xbox owners so they can enjoy it full scope of our Ubisoft + game library, including new releases, on their consoles. ” Ubisoft has not announced when Ubisoft + will be coming to Game Pass.

Ubisoft launched Ubisoft +, originally called Uplay +, in 2019. It gives subscribers access to over 100 Ubisoft games for around $ 15- $ 18 a month. Potential subscribers can either access it via the Uplay PC platform or via Amazon Luna or Google Stadia. Ubisoft integrated the service with both streaming services last year. Ubisoft + joins EA Play, another game publisher’s subscription service with Game Pass.

As has my colleague Jeff said, Xbox has billions of dollars specifically for acquiring content for Game Pass. Extraction and Ubisoft + are both part of these acquisitions. The game is still set to launch on PS5 and PS4 along with Xbox consoles.
