Ubisoft Announces An Early 2006 Release Date For Pc
Version Of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Lockdown

SAN FRANCISCO – October 26, 2005 — Today Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest
video game publishers, announced that the premier multi-player franchise Tom
Clancy’s Rainbow Six Lockdown™, the fourth installment of the multi-million unit
selling franchise, will ship worldwide in early 2006 for the PC. The console
versions of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Lockdown were released earlier this year.

The Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six® franchise, hailed for its immersive
single-player and multi-player experiences, continues with Lockdown as Team
Rainbow, the world’s premier counter-terrorist unit, is called on to fight a
deadly bio-terrorism threat. The crisis takes Rainbow into new territory and new
situations, as for the first time the hunter becomes the hunted.

All-new features, specific to the PC, add to the tensest close-quarter
battles ever experienced online. New features include:
