Rainbow Six Extraction, the upcoming cooperative play focused spin-off of Rainbow Six Siege, is finally slated to release later this month following multiple delays, and now, there is good news for Xbox Game Pass subscribers. The game will be launching across the entire stack of Microsoft's gaming subscriptions.
At launch on January 20, Rainbow Six Extraction will be playable using Xbox Game Pass, PC Game Pass, and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (enabling cloud play) variants. As a bonus, Ubisoft is also bringing in the original tactical shooter Rainbow Six Siege to the PC Game Pass lineup, a game that has already been available to console and cloud players for some time.
Rainbow Six Extraction follows the same operators and their unique gadgets from the Rainbow Six Siege side, but with an alien flavor. Up to three players can team together and venture into alien infested locations to complete randomized objectives and get out successfully. Failing to extract can mean losing an operator until a rescue operation is completed.
"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,” said Xbox's Sarah Bond. “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.”
Rainbow Six Extraction is releasing on January 20 across PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Amazon Luna, and Google Stadia with a $39.99 price tag. Of course, Xbox Game Pass subscribers will gain access for no additional cost.
