New Vegas Maps & Modes Coming in March

Published On February 14, 2007 | By Console Monster | News

Ubisoft have confirmed that a new downloadable pack for Rainbow Six Vegas will be available to download on the Xbox Live Marketplace towards the end of March. The pack, called the “Player’s Pack Red Edition”, will include two new game modes, Assasination and Total Conquest, three new maps and two “reimagined” maps (Border Town and Kill house) which have been revisted by Ubi Montreal and given a complete facelift.

Ubisoft described Assasination as “Imagine a regular day at the office. Suddenly, a Rainbow team anti-terrorist agent explodes through the window and into your cubicle. He hands you a gun, a rappelling belt and tells you to follow him or be killed. The goal of the attackers is to eliminate a high-value asset of the defenders, who in turn will try to defend and escort the VIP to his extraction zone.”

Total Conquest is more of a “Battlefield” type mode. “This is a team-oriented, static control-point game mode where each map contains three Mobile Radar Installations (control points). To win, a team must activate and maintain control of at least one of the three Mobile Radar Installations for a given period of time”

As for the new maps, here’s Ubisoft’s description:
Doscala Restaurant: This well-known Italian restaurant is located in the heart of Las Vegas, near the famous Fremont Street.

Marshalling Yard: This century-old service yard is situated in the center of an industrial district. Still active today, it is primarily used to store cars, but is also equipped with cleaning and maintenance facilities.

Roof: A coffee factory has been overrun in the continuing gang violence that is wreaking havoc in this Mexican border town. The strategic positioning of the factory makes it highly desirable to control, and therefore a focal point of the violence.

IGN have an interview with Ubisoft about the new maps, which you can read here. No pricing has been announced for the map pack. You can check out some screenshots from the pack in our media page.
