First images of Rainbow Six: Vegas

First images of Rainbow Six: Vegas

The following images were put up from Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six: Vegas, to be announced later today. The game is rumored to be under development for Xbox, PS2 and Xbox 360, and more details will probably be released tonight. Looks great except for some smaller details (as the doors), but the game will probably not be released for some time.
Update: According to a press release we just received, the game will be released on current and next gen systems, and on PC.
Update #2: Release date is Autumn 2006. More info in comments 19:36.

Yeah, I saw those. Looks like a game along the lines of GRAW (ported and made much better for 360). I just hope they make it more realistic than the last one.

Ubisoft are pole position as far as next-gen visuals go. Utterly gorgeous.

I just hope it's more RS3 than Lockdown.

Yeah, and I still think Splinter Cell Chaos Theory is the best looking xbox game.

"Update: According to a press release we just recieved, it's Xbox 360 only."

Coming from Ubisoft? Doubt it. That game will be on PC or PS3, sadly.

This looks amazing...
Commented on 2006-03-06 19:09:43
yeah, it is, as the updated states. we also got the press release, so i wanted to update u guys with it, but manager beat me to it :D

/edit
uuuum, from the press release: ..von Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® Vegas für PC, die nächste und auch die aktuelle Generation von Videospielkonsolen bekannt.

its says for PC, the next and actual console generation, so the exclusivity may only be some months and the game is scheduled for a fall 2006 release, but i guess that is subject to change

Looks good, i just wish game companies focused away from the whole war concept and made some great FPS games..aka area51, deux ex, perfect dark .. Getting abit bored of war influenced games..especially with GRAW coming out..i don't want anything else for a long time alike it.. even if the setting and environment is different.
Commented on 2006-03-06 19:39:20
amazing!!

I dont understand why people wanna wait for PS3 just for that blue-ray player.
360 got better games, you can experience next gen TODAY instead of 1 year away.

Commented on 2006-03-06 19:43:25
yeah, but those people may not have the money right now and wait for the ps3, dont know, and the ps3 with the blu-ray drive WILL be cheaper than a stand alone blu-ray player :)

i wanted to post the press release here, but we get ours in german, so thx manager for posting it in english :)

There are a lot of REALLY bad "realistic" shooters out there though--when you look at the solid games set in a realistic context, there's actually no more of these style shooters than there are big profile Sci-Fi releases..atleast I don't think there is..

For example, all of the big up and comming FPS games on PC are pretty much science fiction--Quake Wars, UT2007, Prey, Sin, Half Life 2 Episodes, even Wolfenstien is more sci-fi than it is realistic/historical..currently installed on my PC the split is about 50/50--with COD2, BF2, and CSS representing the real or historical world..and Quake 4, Half Life 2 and...and I guess you're right...realism is winning, but it's close!

I'm actually a little concerned about the rumor that DICE would be making BF2142 next..because personally I'd miss the realistic context that the game is set in..along with the real weapons and stuff..what can I say I like guns.

Sweet, Rainbow 6 is my favourite series from Ubi. :)
