Ubisoft+ Won’t Be A Part Of Xbox Game Pass

Ubisoft has its own version of EA Play, a subscription you can pay for to get a curated library of 100 of the publisher's own releases. It's called Ubisoft+ and it's coming to Xbox, but not Game Pass.

That's an important distinction. If you want to buy into Ubisoft+, you'll have to do so on top of or separately to Xbox Game Pass. Nonetheless, Rainbow Six Extraction will be launching on Xbox Game Pass on the day of release while Siege – which is already on the service for console players – will also be added to PC Game Pass.

"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're demonstrating that we believe in the value and choice that game subscriptions offer to players," Ubisoft senior vice president of strategic partnerships and business development Chris Early said. "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," Early continued.

However, there's no word on whether Ubisoft+ will come to PlayStation. For comparison, EA Play is available on both Xbox and PS, tying into Game Pass as part of the Ultimate bundle, a slightly pricier subscription.

"With Rainbow Six Extraction, Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass members are getting another blockbuster added to their library on the same day the title launches," corporate vice president Sarah Bond added. "And because Rainbow Six Siege will be on both Xbox Game Pass and PC Game Pass as well, the Rainbow Six community and fans of tactical shooters will have plenty to look forward to playing together, no matter where they play."

You can subscribe to Ubisoft+ for $14.99 per month, accessing a library of 100 Ubisoft games. These vary from Assassin's Creed Valhalla to Far Cry 6 to Watch Dogs Legion. Or you can play some Monopoly.
