Ubisoft has whipped the wrappers off of Rainbow Six Vegas 2, the next and sixth instalment in its tactical shooting series.

It's due out here next March on PC, PS3 and 360, and not a lot appears to have changed. The Montreal studio who made the first will be developing it, and offering more in the way of co-operative, tactical and online options than before.

Elsewhere there will obviously be a new campaign to get stuck into as well as more fancy graphics to ooh and ah at.

"Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas took the gaming world by storm in 2006 thanks to its technological advances and gameplay innovations," said Yves Guillemot, smiling boss of Ubisoft.

"We are convinced that Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas 2 will remain a pioneer in the highly competitive first person shooter genre, bringing more of what Rainbow Six fans love to the table."

As Yves helpfully mentioned, Rainbow Six Vegas came out last year and was actually very good - a welcome return to form said Kristan in our review.

Hopefully this time Ubisoft can brush up on a few of its production values and make the story a little more engrossing. If it does, this could be one to remember for years.
