Ubisoft+ coming too in the future.

Already quite a lot of coop shooters on the market, guess it makes sense for Ubi like it did for Back 4 Blood and Outriders. Guarantees a bit of initial player base, hopefully the game is good enough to carry on from there.

I completely forgot this game existed- it fell off my radar once hte alien shit was revealed. But since it's free might as well give a whirl

I'll try it because it's on gamepass but I gotta be honest we were all dumping on this when it was revealed. Hopefully it will be a fun co op shooter to add to the pile. I think gamepass makes sense for this because I don't think there's any hype or excitement for it.

Or is it just one of Phil's balls in my throat?

That’s how gamepass works you negotiate a big AAA game gamers go “holy shit” and subscribe

Cool! Never played one of these Rainbow Six games. Is this like Call of Duty?
Not in the slightest beyond it being an FPS. Even then Siege is better than Extraction by far, unless you only like playing against AI. Honestly it feels like an overpriced mode add on to Siege that was obviously made after Operation Outbreak.

Played the most recent test of the game and it's pretty lackluster. Didn't help that they had code watermarked on the entire screen which made it nearly impossible to see let alone causing headaches.

Yeah everything about it looks like a Zombie mode in any given CoD game. They could release it as an add on for Siege I reckon.

Huge? There is a reason why no one cares for this game. It would be huge if the service gets third party AAA games, people care about but that’s not the deal for this service in general.
There’s Total War Warhammer 3 coming in February, guess that’s also not AAA third party because reasons.
Where's Valhalla? I figured with the recent fire sale it was due to hit the service soon.
I don’t think they will bring it since they never brought any AC game as far as I can tell.

Ubisoft+ is a bigger deal than Rainbow Six. So now GamePass will have EA Play and Ubisoft+ included. That's pretty incredible value if true. I know Karak Karak has hinted at this on his podcasts.

There's going to be a lot of sodium chloride thrown around the day this happens.

Smart, it'll give it half a chance to have some small playerbase. This might be the dumbest thing Ubi has done in a long time. The event that this is derived from isn't even LOVED that much, it's not hated, but nobody is CRYING OUT for it.

Hopefully you'll be able to earn R6 bananabucks in the game, then it'll get a few people.

This PVE game should be a lot of fun for a day. Glad its on gamepass. The Ubisoft+ coming xbox news is less exciting. No one wants to pay $15-20 a month for that. haha

wow, I was 100% going to buy this and give the buddy pass to some friends to convince them to buy it as well

If you are already paying for gamepass, learn this now, DO NOT buy games until you are sure its not coming to the service. I wanted to buy like 10 games but just waited it out and they are all on there now.. still waiting for Cyberpunk but its probably coming soon. Had to buy CoD because we know that's never coming to GP.

Steam lost all of my business thanks to pc game pass..
 
I played the NDA closed beta. Well tried because Ubisoft decided to cover the entire screen with text to avoid footage. Yeah this was pretty much waiting to be announced after me and my friends played it. Not a lot of people liked this game, the price tag even slashed down to 40 USD was an abysmal offering. The gameplay was fucking horrible beyond belief, with kind of a dumb AI, a shitty revive system, and just all in all boring ideas.

How can it be AAA when it’s 40$? GTA Online E&E is coming day 1 on PS Plus which has way more hype and is going to be more active.
So go make a fucking thread about it instead of derailing this one.

It's going to have more attention & day one players now, than it would have without this deal.
