Rainbow Six Extraction has a day one release date for Xbox Game Pass but there’s pre-order bonuses you can collect if you’d rather buy the game.

There’s lots of uncertainty surrounding the newest instalment in the Tom Clancy series. This is because it is full of aliens with some fans claiming that is only Rainbow Six in name.

While the jury is still out as to whether the game is worthy of the series’ moniker, the good news is that you will be able to play it for free on Microsoft consoles and PC.

When does Rainbow Six Extraction come out on Game Pass?

The Xbox Game Pass release date for Rainbow Six Extraction is January 20th.

It is a day one launch title so this is when it will become available on all platforms, too. The title will also be available from day one on Ubisoft Plus if you’re a member of that service.

In addition to the announcement of Extraction joining Game Pass from day one, it’s also been announced that Ubisoft Plus is coming to Xbox consoles. It will remain a separate subscription service on consoles and no release date has been announced.

Xbox Game Pass price

You can join Xbox Game Pass for simply £7.99 per month on either console or PC, or you can join for £10.99 a month for an ultimate membership.

If you’re on PC and would rather subscribe to Ubisoft Plus instead, you can join for £12.99 a month. Seeing as Xbox has a better and broader range of titles, we’d highly recommend Game Pass.

However, you can instead buy the game on its own to get some pre-order bonuses.
