Ubisoft has today announced that it will release a PlayStation 2 version of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3 in March. Developed by Ubisoft's Shanghai studio, the game will boast a number of features not found in the Xbox version released last year.
"The Tom Clancy brand represents one of the best-selling video game franchises ever, and Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3 is already a runaway success on the PC and Xbox. We expect a repeat performance," said Florence Alibert, marketing director for Ubisoft Europe, Middle-East, and Asia. "Thrilling and realistic single- and multiplayer gameplay, intelligent AI, stunning graphics, and an amazing real-time voice command system are combined to deliver the best counterterrorist gaming experience on the market--period."
In addition to the campaign from the Xbox and PC versions of Rainbow Six 3, the PS2 version will boast an additional mission, extra multiplayer maps, and a new two-player split-screen mode for cooperative play. Voice command technology will be supported for players with a headset, thus allowing them to communicate with both AI squadmates during campaign missions and other players in the game's three adversarial modes of online play.
