Today, Ubisoft had a couple of new announcements regarding the Xbox side of gaming. Alongside revealing the upcoming arrival of Rainbow Six Extraction to all Xbox Game Pass subscription variants at launch, it also dropped the news that Ubisoft+ is incoming to Xbox consoles.
Similar to other gaming subscriptions, Ubisoft+ offers its members access to a curated games library for a monthly cost. Originally launched as Uplay+ in 2019 with a $14.99 price tag, the service became Ubisoft+ last year, expanding its reach from just PC to also Google Stadia and Amazon Luna.
The subscription offers access to over 100 Ubisoft titles, from classics to the latest releases at launch like Far Cry 6, Assassin's Creed Valhalla, and Riders Republic. It also boasts access to most games' DLC and expansions at no extra cost.

Unfortunately, no specific dates were given as to when Xbox console owners can expect to get their hands on the subscription, with Ubisoft senior vice president Chris Early only adding "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."
This is not the first time a major publisher has brought over their subscription service to a console platform, with EA bringing over EA Play to Xbox and then PlayStation years back. It will be interesting to see if Ubisoft+ will be available for PlayStation platforms in the future too or if this an Xbox only thing, at least at launch.
