Due out on Xbox Live Marketplace at the end of March, the Player's Pack Red Edition content pack will include five more multiplayer maps and two new game modes for Vegas. Ubisoft has not announced a price point for the content.

Of the five maps, three will be brand new and two will be Rainbow Six: Vegas maps--Border Town and Killhouse--that have been "revisited and relit." The three new maps are:
