This news hit the wires on 10/20 … ‘just so ya know.’
Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest video game publishers, announced that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3 for Xbox has reached gold master status and is expected to hit store shelves in the coming weeks. Eagerly anticipated as the must-have Xbox and Xbox Live game for the holiday season, the game has already enjoyed a massive pre-sell campaign, as tens of thousands of orders in the first weeks of the offer signal that the game will be a huge success for 2003.
Completely redesigned for next-gen console players, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3 gives players the opportunity to command an elite, four-man international anti-terrorist squad, and features trademark realism of the Clancy games, immediate, immersive close-quarters action, state of the art in-game cinematics, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell-quality graphics and a nail-biting plot ripped from today’s headlines. A voice-activated command system and comprehensive Xbox Live multiplayer capabilities round out the most exciting experience Xbox players will have this year.
“Xbox gamers, get ready to be blown away! Ubisoft Montreal has delivered another Clancy masterpiece and a strong contender for Xbox Game of the Year,” said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing for Ubisoft. “Based on the realism and relevance Clancy games are known for, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3 gets the adrenaline pumping from the word ‘Go’ – with an insanely cool voice command system, intense missions, stunning effects, the best graphics since Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell and the best Xbox Live experience since Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon.”
