In case Mass Effect Legendary Edition, Outer Wilds, and all the other free January games included on Xbox Game Pass aren’t to your liking, you’ll be happy to hear that Microsoft has just announced that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction, the co-operative derivative shooter from Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege, will be available for free on PC and consoles for all subscribers starting January 20, 2022. The announcement came as a surprise a few moments ago on Twitter. It was accompanied by a press release in which Ubisoft intends to bring its Ubisoft + subscription service to Xbox consoles.
As for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction, it has been confirmed that this will be available on day one for all PC Game Pass and Xbox Game Pass Ultimate subscribers. The game will support cross-play from launch, so PC, Xbox Series X / S, and Xbox One players will be able to play immediately together. In case even this offer does not satisfy you, again, starting from January 20, PC players will also be able to play Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Siege for free, another gift from Microsoft to subscribers.
Finally, in the press release published by Ubisoft, we read that the French studio intends to bring its Ubisoft + subscription service on Xbox and PC. The service includes over 100 video games and requires a monthly payment of € 14.99, but the price could drop slightly with the arrival on Xbox. Last January, some insiders were talking about possible integration with Xbox Game Pass Ultimate (EA Playstyle), but there are no confirmations in this regard.
Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Extraction will be available from January 20 on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X / S, and PC at the budget price of € 39.99. If you are a Game Pass subscriber, the cost is zero. For more information on the game, you can look at the latest gameplay video.
