Ubisoft has declared that Rainbow Six Extraction will launch immediately onto Xbox Game Pass when it arrives later this month.

As revealed on the Xbox Wire, the upcoming co-op shooter will be available on console, PC and the cloud from January 20. This means subscribers will be able to jump in with their friends at no extra cost to their existing subscription.

If that wasn’t enough, PC players will also get to play Rainbow Six Siege, as that will be added to PC Game Pass on the same day. Ubisoft has already previously confirmed players of both Siege and Extraction get bonuses of exclusive gear across both games.

The announcement was rounded off by the confirmation that Ubisoft+ will also be coming to Xbox in the near future. For a monthly fee, subscribers to the service are offered a library of Ubisoft published games. In addition, subscribers also get some games and DLC on launch day, and extra monthly bonuses. However, Ubisoft has confirmed that this won’t be offered as part of Xbox Game Pass. Rather, it’ll be a separate subscription.  Presumably, we’ll hear more details on pricing, etc closer to its launch.

In the meantime, Rainbow Six Extraction will be available on January 20 on Xbox Series X|S, Xbox One and PC through Xbox Game Pass. It’ll also be available on PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 on the same day.
