Microsoft confirms that even more games published by Ubisoft are coming to the Xbox Game Pass subscription service in the coming months.
After Microsoft struck a deal with EA to bring its EA Play library of games to Xbox Game Pass, many expected a similar deal to be reached with Ubisoft. Despite rumors of Ubisoft Connect coming to Xbox Game Pass, nothing official in this regard has been announced at the time of writing. But while Ubisoft Connect isn’t part of Xbox Game Pass yet, that hasn’t stopped some of Ubisoft’s top games from joining Microsoft’s popular subscription service.
At the beginning of this year, Rainbow Six extraction hit Xbox Game Pass as a day one release, which was significant because Extraction was one of the first major new game releases of 2022. Now it looks like Ubisoft is planning to bring even more of its games to Xbox Game Pass in the relatively near future, with two titles in particular mentioned.
Microsoft has confirmed that in the next two months, Assassin’s Creed Origins is coming to Xbox Game Pass and will be available on cloud, console and PC (the latter via the Ubisoft Connect app). Assassin’s Creed Origins first launched in 2017 and took the HERE franchise in some bold new directions. Assassin’s Creed Origins was the first game in the long-running series to fully adopt an action-RPG framework, which has since been used in Assassin’s Creed Odyssey and Assassin’s Creed Valhalla.
In the meantime, Xbox Game Pass subscribers can also look forward to the addition of For Honor: Marching Fire Edition. The standard edition of for honor is now available for Xbox Game Pass console and cloud players, but will soon be updated to Marching on Fire Edition, which is also coming to PC Game Pass via Ubisoft Connect. The difference between the two versions is that the Marching on Fire Edition comes with the fire on the march expansion, giving players access to the Wu Lin faction.
These are just the latest Ubisoft games coming to Xbox Game Pass, but one has to imagine that there will be even more added in the future. In the end, Assassin’s Creed Origins and For Honor: Marching Fire Edition are preceded by the aforementioned Rainbow Six extractionthe basic game of for honorand Rainbow Six Siege.
Xbox Game Pass specific release dates for Assassin’s Creed Origins and For Honor: Marching Fire Edition have yet to be announced, so fans should stay tuned for more information on that front. In the meantime, they can check out the new Xbox Game Pass games added in April 2022 and look forward to titles in May.
