Ubisoft hits us with five new maps and two new gamemodes in the upcoming Player's Pack Red Edition.

"Hey you, VIP. Come with us or die." That was IGN's caption for the above photo detailing the soon-to-be-released update to Rainbow Six: Las Vegas. The expansion includes two new game types and five new maps. The first new gametype, Assassination, features a scenario where a member of the defense team is randomly picked as the "VIP." As the above photo indicates, he is literally handed a gun and told to follow the escort team to the extraction point. Of course, the purpose of the Assault team is to attack and kill the VIP and defenders.

The second new game type is like some of our old favorites, "Battlefield", where team fight for control of a number of "radar stations" positioned around the map. Some of you may not like this game, but some of us do. These additions look like they're going to lengthen out the life of this game significantly. Some of you should consider getting the damn game.

I would be exited except for I dont have R6V. But I am happy to report I got my box back today and it seems to be healthy.

I was impressed with the speed, dropped off at UPS about 2 on Monday, got it back today about 12.
