Ubi apologises for R6 Vegas DLC

Was meant to be free. Is now.

Ubisoft has apologised to Rainbow Six: Vegas owners who paid 800 Microsoft points (around seven quid) for five downloadable maps last week. It turns out they were meant to be free.

The Black Pack, which we wrote about last Tuesday, offered up a "reduxed" version of "Streets", a "PRESIDIO" from Rainbow Six III and three newcomers.

"Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas Black Pack Downloadable Content for Xbox 360 Live was originally intended to be free content for the fans of Rainbow Six Vegas," Ubisoft said in a statement released through official blogs.

"We apologise for the error. All players who purchased the Black Pack will be reimbursed automatically [within 8 to 10 weeks, according to Microsoft].

"The Black Pack will be posted Saturday June 30th and will be free of charge. Also, as a token of our appreciation for the Rainbow Six community, we are making the Red Pack free as of Friday July 6th as well. Thanks for playing and we hope you enjoy this free content."

True to its word, you can now pop onto Xbox Live Marketplace and download the Black Pack for zero monies. We'll be doing something similar.

Which is to say we'll be playing Pac-Man: Championship Edition instead. 293,000. Take it.
