  • About Rainbow Six Vegas 2...

    Might be a good idea to pool our information about this upcoming game together in one thread... not only to know, but to build hype... because I have a feeling Rainbow Six Vegas 2 is going to be a big hit, both on PC and Xbox 360 (and PS3 I guess)... Like Call of Duty 4 is a hit for PC and consoles.

    Rainbow Six Vegas 2

    Official site:
    http://rainbowsixgame.us.ubi.com/age...tURL=/home.php

    Release dates:

    Xbox 360 & PS3; March 20th
    PC version; March 28th

    What I've read so far:

    Create your own character male or female now

    Your not Logan Keller this time, your Bishop... still with Walter and Park...

    cutscenes are interactive through your eyes, like Half life 2

    The new maps will be bigger, outside, in neighborhoods and streets, along with the vegas stuff.

    Better graphics for both SP and MP

    PEC-character developement, you will get points and achievments and unlocks playing both SP and MP aspects of the game... so if you play the SP campaign first, you will have rank and unloceked weapons when you MP, instead of starting over.

    The point system will be more like Call of Duty 4's point system for objectives, kills, etc etc

    Everything you do is tracked and recorded, head shots, flank kills, etc etc

    able to sprint

    The campaign and the co-op is one in the same now, not a shorten version of the mission, you will go through the whole mission... up to 4 for the co-op, and the maps are made to accomidate tactics for 4 instead of 2 entries.

    UPDATE: now it's only 2 player co-op.

    You can start a solo game, have friends come and go as needed and still continue with the mission and the points.

    Xbox live report:
    11 new weapons (50 total now)
    11 total maps including a couple of classics from PC Raven Shield
    2 new game modes
    new online match search engine
    ability to join in progress
    An improved terrorist Hunt mode (terrorist will spawn more fairly, and not behind you)
    Invite friends into RANNKED sessions

    ACES (advance combat enhancements and specilaties)
    (experience points)
    1. Close Quarters battle
    2. Marksmanship
    3. Assualt

    (with rewards specific to the type of gamer you are)


    3/6/08 ADDED

    Vegas 2 adds a few new wrinkles like bullet penetration physics and distructible cover.

    New to Vegas 2 is a domination inspired MP mode called Total Conquest. To win your teasm must hold 3 satellite dishes for 30 strait seconds.

    Vegas 2 moves slighterly faster then Vegas 1 but not as fast as Halo 3 or Call of Duty 4.

    AI has been greatly improved and concentrated on.

    RS Vegas 2 vs CoD4:

    It will be compared, both are simular but different.

    Realistic weapon behavior...both
    Insanely realisitic weapon behavior... Vegas 2
    Persistent character for online... both
    Persistent character across all modes... Vegas 2
    Speedy, twitch-based moving and shooting...CoD4
    Slower, stealthgier creeping and ambushing... Vegas 2
    Survival traits: Accurancy, speed, tenacity... CoD4
    Survival traits: Forethought, patience, teamwork... Vegas 2

      Something I noticed late when playing this is that if you die all the points you get for your last tries are not removed and reset you keep them and build on them more with every kill even if you die and go back some.

      I almost thought about stoping in an area or 2 to get some points in the areas I was weak in.

            Checked at Ubi and they still wanted $30 so I found a New game source on ebay for less than $10 including shipping.

                    There is in-game VoIP. I've used it many times (although I prefer TS).

                    I did not purchase through Steam, but I doubt it's any different than my retail copy. The game still fails to recognize the DVD once in a while or has trouble logging into the account server.

                        Do not buy from the previously listed site and the offer may have been pulled. My copy arrived today without a key and I'm in the process of seeing if I can secure one as the revised listing was made AFTER I purchased the disk.

                        But , Ubisoft auto patched to the latest patch and its running in Directx10 and Holy Guacamole, Batman this is off the scale. Customized armor and weapons and I'm only a private and the graphics and action are unbelievable. The best of every favorite game rolled into one. Weapons that sound and handle like real weapons. No "fog of war" (clean graphics). Can't wait to repel through a window. I really hope the MP plays anything like the game if it does it'll rip the heart out of almost every game on our servers. Gives you a reason to know the 4 man stack.

                          Seller has offered a refund and I found another copy brand new sealed so there is a reason to want the box after all, can't wait to try the mp.

                              Hmm, maybe I can get together with some TGers tomorrow for a game or two.

                              Been playing terrorist hunt with a clanmate for the past few months and it's hard to find good public players who don't go around running and gunning and generally being a idiot.
