Ubisoft is going to make its own subscription service available for Xbox consoles. Ubisoft+ is currently available for PCs and some cloud streaming services. Rainbow Six: Extraction will also be available at launch via the Xbox Game Pass subscription.
The game company writes that its Ubisoft + subscription service will be available “in the future” for Xbox users, but does not mention a concrete release date. It is not clear what the service will cost for the Xbox. A PC subscription costs 15 euros per month and a Ubisoft+ subscription for PCs and Stadia costs three euros extra.
Through Ubisoft+, the company offers access to all the games it releases. The service was initially known as Uplay+, but was renamed to Ubisoft+ in 2020 and was released simultaneously for Google Stadia and Amazon Luna. Incidentally, Ubisoft+ will not be the first third-party subscription service to be released for Xbox. Electronic Arts previously made EA Play available for Xbox and PlayStation and later added the service to Xbox Game Pass.
Ubisoft doesn’t seem to do the latter; the company only indicates that it will offer its Ubisoft+ subscription to Xbox users. Ubisoft has announced that PVE shooter Rainbow Six: Extraction will be added to the Xbox Game Pass subscription immediately upon release. This applies to both Game Pass Ultimate and Game Pass for PCs. The game will be released January 20.
