Rumor: New maps headed for R6: Vegas

The latest issue of the Official Xbox Magazine apparently spills the beans on new Rainbow Six: Vegas content. The content supposedly contains ten new maps and two new multiplayer modes for 800 MS points. One of the new game types, Assassination, requires players to protect their player controlled VIP and attempt to assassinate the opposing team's VIP. Conquest asks players to maintain control over certain sections of the map, similar to King of the Hill and Territories game types in other games. The content is scheduled to arrive in March.

Anyone with a new copy of OXM care to confirm?

They do not have a confirmed price, but are guessing and hoping it will be around 800 points.

Ten maps? Niiiiiice.

About time too, I've played the current maps to death. Here's hoping you can play T-Hunt on these news maps.

800 points for two multiplayer maps. Jeez. Why not just charge $500 for the game and do you f-ing job. Talk about milking the masses on bread crumbs.

That's one crazy, mixed-up metaphor.

10 new maps sounds awesome, I hope they use the extra 250 achievement points for the expansion, as per the guidelines on www.gamerscoreblog.com

Peeps will vote with their wallets. Ten maps is tempting but I really have no interest in any modes other than T-Hunt and Team Survival.

Of course, there'll be a domino effect where enough players will be interested enough to pay for the extras, thereby influencing all their play buddies to do the same or be left out. Micro-fricken-transactions, you are a cruel mistress.

lol #5... mixed metaphors FTW

#4 sp4rt4n029 "its 10 Multiplayer maps and 2 new "MODES". wake up and then comment."

Hmm, I thought it said something else. But, the printed words are "The content supposedly contains ten new maps and two new multiplayer modes for 800 MS points."

As such, it doesn't say anything about the maps being multiplayer at all. So, I'm not the only one that may need waking up?

I can confirm that on page 38 there's a half page box about it. The new modes are Assassination and Conquest (control three mobile installations).

On page 88 they also reference in the rumour box a 2nd DLC pack for Gears of War to drop soon.

ne1 know about the "Siege Specialst" achievement being broken? The following is an email I sent to Ubisoft and am still waiting on a response.

(I have successfully completed the "Siege Specialist" achievment requirements numerous times and the system still wont give me the acheivement. I have made sure that the game was ranked and we were the defenders and won the attack and defend match in Calypso. For ex, I had 43 kills and 12 deaths the second place defender only had 22 kills and I still didnt get the achievment. When can this be fixed?

BTW, I LOVE vegas, it truly is the SICKEST game I have ever played. Going to be hard to beat, multiplayer anyway.

Have a great day.
Thanks)

I will post the reponse once I get it.

The achievement says;

" Be the leading contributor of kills for the defenders in a winning ranked A&D match"
