Video: RSV2 to feature a re-worked reward system
Ubisoft just released a new Rainbow Six Vegas 2 development diary video today with lead designer Philippe Therien talking about the changes RSV2 will see, some of the environments and the new upgraded reward system. Which, we must admit, is pretty cool.
In general, Ubisoft completely overhauled RSV2's reward and upgrade system that rewards players for every action or objective completed in the game. The rewards are broken into three categories, Experience Points, Ranks and A.C.E.S. Experience Points are earned through killing enemies, reaching checkpoints and completing objectives and can be tracked on the new XP meter at the bottom of the HUD. Once the XP meter is full, the player will unlock a new Rank which in turn unlocks new clothing and visual enhancements for your soldier. The final reward is A.C.E.S. and are earned through Close Quarters, Assault and Marksmanship feats you complete which eventually unlock weapon upgrades. It may sound a bit confusing, but watch the video, listen to Mr. Therien and everything should make sense. And did we mention that ALL character upgrades will not only save to your multiplayer and campaign profiles, but can also be earned through multiplayer, single player campaign and single player co-op gaming? Suh-weet!
