Not to be outdone by the recent Red Edition, Ubisoft has released the Player's Pack Black Edition, an all-new downloadable content package (800 Microsoft points/$10) coming up for the X360 edition of Rainbow Six Vegas, adding five more playable multiplayer maps; 3 new maps like Red Lotus and Wartown, a reduxed version of Streets, and a remake of the Rainbow Six 3 classic, PRESIDIO map.

About Player's Pack Red Edition:

Three Brand-New MP Adversarial Maps: Three brand-new MP maps are included for a brand-new Vegas multiplayer experience.

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

Two Revisited, MP Adversarial Maps: Two favorite Rainbow Six Vegas MP maps are revisited, restructured and relit for a new gameplay experience.

  • Border Town: Redux
  • Killhouse: Redux

Two New Modes: Two all-new game modes that can be played in the 10 original maps and the five new maps add to Vegas' long list of available game types.

  • Assassination mode: The goal of the Attackers is to eliminate a high-value asset of the Defenders, who in turn will try to defend and escort the VIP to his extraction zone.
  • 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.
