Rainbow Six Siege Infiltrates Xbox Game Pass in October

Another game gets added to Xbox Game Pass for console and Android devices in Ubisoft's popular tactical shooter.

Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege may have launched way back in 2015, but it's enjoyed continued popularity over the past five years. A quick look at Steam Charts shows that average monthly players for the game on Valve's platform alone have mostly increased since late 2017. To date, the game has "more 60 million registered players" across all platforms.

Now Rainbow Six Siege is coming to Xbox Game Pass for console and Android on October 22. While Siege will be available to all Game Pass subscribers on console, only those who subscribe to Game Pass Ultimate will be able to play Siege on Android devices through xCloud. 

There's currently no word if Siege will make it to Game Pass on PC.

According to Microsoft, players will have to unlock some of the game's content, including operators and renown boosts, but a Game Pass sub softens the monetary blow just a bit.

You can use your membership discount to get up to 10% off in-game items – including the Year 5 pass to unlock new operators, renown boosts, and more.

Ultimately, there's quite a bit of content available in the base game  enough to get players started. There are 11 base maps, as well as five different modes to choose from, including solo modes, co op multiplayer modes, and PvP modes to take part in. 

If tactical shooters aren't your thing (but they probably are since you're here reading this), several other titles have already hit Game Pass in October, including Age of Empires 3: Definitive Edition, Katana Zero, and Tales of Vesperia. More are coming on October 21 and October 22. You can see the full list of what's being added and removed here
