Rainbow Six Extraction is coming to Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass on launch day, as revealed by both Ubisoft and Microsoft. The co-op FPS will be available on January 20th.
Ubisoft’s Chris Early said the decision to bring Extraction to Game Pass day one is meant to show how Ubisoft see the “value and choice that game subscriptions offer to players.”
Of course, Rainbow Six Extraction won’t be the only title from the series coming to Xbox Game Pass. Rainbow Six Siege is also being added to PC Game Pass on January 20th, while the console version for Game Pass will have its availability period extended (Ubisoft did not clarify for how long).
For those who wish to purchase Extraction, it can be preordered right now for $40 USD. It comes with two “Buddy Pass” tokens that allows you to play with friends for up to 14 days across platforms. All progress for free players will carry over if they decide to purchase the game.
Although Rainbow Six Extraction takes elements from Rainbow Six Siege, Ubisoft is adamant the two games will appeal to different audiences, with the title’s creative director saying the two games are “very different.”
Ubisoft also recently announced that Ubisoft+ will be making its way to Xbox at some point. It’s unclear if this service will be mixed in with Xbox Game Pass. In other Extraction news, Ubisoft revealed the specs needed run the game on PC.
