As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

'Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow' (Xbox) Downloadable Content - Screens

Team Rainbow, get ready! Four new maps for Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3 Black Arrow are now available for download via Xbox Live. The second Assault Pack delivers an array of new maps for Xbox Live fans to test their mettle and continue their quest to maintain world peace. For a mere $4.99, players will receive Pumping Station, Winterbase, Harbor and Prison, and can travel to the United Arab Emirates, Russia, Sweden, and San Francisco from the comfort of their sofa – all while establishing themselves as the best counter-terrorist operatives in the world.

MAP DETAILS

PUMPING STATION
- Location: HAMIM, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES

Pumping Station takes place in the warehouse and storage yard of an oil field. It is a smaller map with a simple layout, with a lot of cover and many paths. It is good for medium-ranged game play. Watch out for opponents throwing grenades from one yard to the next!

WINTERBASE
- Location: MURMANSK REGION, RUSSIA

Winter Base is an outdoor map which has a mountain canyon as its central feature. Survival in this map depends on stealth and patience. It is a sniper's paradise. If you are a small group of players looking for a different experience, this is it.

HARBOR
- Location: UDDEVALLA, SWEDEN

Harbor Warehouse is a large open space filled with a maze of cargo containers. Teamwork and timing are the keys to success in this map. Expect a lot of close quarter encounters and keep your eye on all the hiding spots scattered through the map.

PRISON
- Location: SAN FRANCISCO, CA, USA

This is a port of the original R63 map Prison, only smaller. The map now consists of the cellblock, the yard, and the northern and west buildings; the infirmary underneath has been closed off to create tighter game play. Prison is now a medium sized map with multiple routes, aimed more towards a Military base style game play. This map should provide multiple routes and something for everyone – now that the bottom is closed running around the map not finding anyone will never be an issue.
