Rainbow Six Vegas 2 details

Plus shots, trailer.

Almost exactly a month after we first heard about it (it's as if they have some sort of schedule), Ubisoft has popped up with more details of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2. Did you know it has 13 new multiplayer maps? You do now. Unless you're not paying attention.

Due out in March on Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, Vegas 2 also adds two new adversarial multiplayer modes, more rewards and improved matchmaking to its online elements. Integration with single-player sounds better too - your customised character can be used across both elements, with progress following you too, and the single-player game has been designed "with co-op in mind", allowing for drop-in co-op, and with multiple entry points for each level, none of which should distort the game's story.

That concerns "the last chance for gamers to rescue America's sexiest city from an escalating terrorist siege", according to Ubisoft, and the terrorists have been hitting the books (probably Clancy's) since game 1, bringing in thermal and night vision equipment, shields, and more tactical nouse. But then you have 11 new weapons to choose from, new camo, clothing and gear, so you should be a match.

On top of that, there are more bits of Vegas to explore, obviously, so neither of you has it particularly comfortably.

Along with the above details, Ubisoft also slung us two new screenshots and a teaser trailer to whet your appetite for the good fight. Let us know what you think about them by pointing your crosshairs at the speak-your-brain below.
