Rainbow Six: Backyard Destruction.

Rescue hostages from the set of a porno.


(Also, huzzah! Loved the Vegas games)

Seriously, it's about time. I've been itching for some Tom Clancy action and realized that just about everything out there is a few years old.

What difference does it make? Ubisoft doesn't properly support their multiplayer games post-launch.

See Vegas & Vegas 2 for details. :/

It would be pretty funny if we get a new Rainbow Six before they finish that Ghost Recon game they showed off last year.

Vegas 2 got a pretty meaty update if I remember correctly that added high stakes mode and ect.

Yeah, what the hell ever happened to that Ghost Recon game? I never played Rainbow Six:Vegas 2 but played the shit out of one. A new Rainbow Six dropping soon would be awesome.

Could use a tactical themed FPS game. Tagging enemies for your team, flash bang and take them out without harming hostages. Yeah!

Vegas and, to a lesser extent, Vegas 2 are the best online multiplayer games this gen.

I want a game like that, not Vegas.
Not the only one. Well, if you're talking Rainbow Six 3 PC (Raven Shield/Athena Sword), that is.

If you're talking the xbox bastardization then I've got nothing to say to you :p

Rainbow Six died after part 3. Lockdown was a joke and Vegas was just offensive. 3rd person cover system, regenerating health and unlimited ammo pistols should never have been in a R6 game.

I'm thinking both the PC and Xbox versions, they were immense!
I spent more than 200 hours with the Xbox version alone, those were my best days on Xbox Live. Spent a whole lot of hours with Black Arrow as well. Raven Shield was awesome.

It wasnt like the old ones but doesnt mean it was a bad game. Vegas 1 and 2 where pretty good.

As long as they include the camera feature again that lets you put your own face in the game.
Day1

I had mine nearly picture perfect.
Added a whole new level of entertainment.
Loved watching me run around..
*stretches on chair*
"oh yeah..."

One of the Greatest Online games i've played and one of the most fun, tactical and teamwork related games i've played to date.

I need me anew fix, Six.

Don't worry guys, it'll still be teh tektikal.

It'll have a cover system and everything! Who cares about careful and methodical command of a team and execution of a plan.

Oh, come now...Black Arrow was a great effort.
It was ok, I guess, but they removed all the mission pre-planning, team placement and whatnot, which is what made the series great and unique to me.

I owned both as well (even Black Arrow) but to be honest I didn't enjoy the xbox ones so much. Honestly, as a pseudo squad-based shooter I liked more the Vegas entries than the original xbox's ones.

Hopefully if they are bringing the series back they'll be able to reach a middle ground between Vegas and Raven Shield/Athena Sword. And I hope they don't make it futuristic.

The latest 3rd person rainbow sixes should have gotten a different title.

I love playing tactical shooters like Rainbow Six: Rogue Spear and SWAT4.

They switched to another genre, but continued using the same title, meaning they killed a whole genre.

Lol, unfortunately i'm on the other side of the fence now.
No Kinect for me.
But if it had 3D,...
I'd never need another shooter ever.

Make it happen Ubi :)

New Rainbow? AAAAWWWWW YEEEAAAAHHHHH.

I really enjoyed Vegas. Game was a graphical looker when it came out. I remember playing that demo disc over and over.

My friend and I actually ran through the first Vegas co-op story mode last weekend and it's still as fun as I remember it.

I loved Vegas 2 multiplayer (and FINALLY made Elite a month ago), but the single-player felt so half-assed to me, and the
big reveal in the terrorist plot being one ex-Rainbow's temper tantrum about what a rogue fuck-up he was, was insulting.

Terrorist Hunt needs tweaking.

Needs a reboot. R6, GR and SC were all blending into the same world and it was becoming had to tell the difference. Keep GR as the military shooter + tech, keep R6 as the tactical SWAT style shooter it started out as.

Yes please but also take the extreme crazy tech out of GR too.

Even if RSV and RSV2 were disappointing compared to the older Rainbow games, they were still head and shoulders above most shooters out there. I'd love to see Ubi take another swing at the series, especially if they focus more on the tactical shooter roots. Also, co-op with multiple teams would be fan-fucking-tastic.

the concept of RS:vegas was cool but the execution, at least on ps3, was miserable. Something about that unreal engine and the sluggish controls really got to me.

Here's to hoping for modern reboot with some bitchin visuals and planning modes.

I'd be okay with PC-only

R6 using the Parkour engine stuff from AC, mainly for the movement and navigating objects/using ropes etc. Shooters need to go past chest high walls.

I think they said a while back that Vegas was finished and they wanted to move on. Kinda like GRAW is gone but they still want to make GR games.
