Ubisoft is preparing to release a Player's Pack Red Edition featuring 5 new multiplayer maps as well as 2 new game modes (Assassination, and Conquest) for its recently release tactical shooter Rainbow Six Vegas. Read more for details and screens ...

The future of global security hangs in the balance as you battle to defend classic Vegas locations and environments like Fremont Street, the Strip and casinos. Experience Las Vegas like never before ­ through revolutionary next generation technology as you work against the clock to protect one of the world's most recognizable cities from utter devastation.

The stakes are high when the world’s most elite counter-terrorism unit enters Las Vegas, where over 36.7 million men, women and children visit each year. “Sin City,” the home of the famous Las Vegas Strip, flashy hotels, high-rolling casinos and world-famous celebrities, becomes the setting for a terrorist threat of global proportions. What happens when one of the world’s most famous cities is held hostage by terrorists?

Assassination Mode

  • Doscala Restaurant: A well-known Italian restaurant is located in the heart of Las Vegas, near the famous Fremont Street.
  • Marshalling Yard: A century-old service yard 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.

Total Conquest :

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.
