Microsoft announced today that Ubisoft’s Rainbow Six Extraction is coming to all versions of Xbox Game Pass on its first day of availability. This is a major milestone, with a third-party game studio deciding to launch an expected blockbuster on Game Pass on day one.
“The operators of Rainbow Six are about to face their greatest challenge when Rainbow Six Extraction launches on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC,” Microsoft’s Will Tuttle writes in the announcement post. “Rainbow Six Extraction will be available on day one with Xbox Game Pass, so operators will be joined by Xbox Game Pass members on console, PC, and cloud from around the world to help them battle the ever-evolving alien menace which threatens the globe.”
Rainbow Six Extraction is described as a tactical 1-3 player co-op Player vs. Environment (PvE) first-person shooter (FPS) where gamers unite with the elite operators from Rainbow Six against a deadly alien threat known as the Archaens. It launches on January 20, 2022.
And there’s more: Ubisoft also announced that it will bring its Ubisoft+ subscription service to Xbox platforms soon. Ubisoft+ starts at $14.99 per month and provides access to over 100 Ubisoft games on PC—plus select titles across device types from the cloud—including premium editions and day one releases.
