From the linked article:

Ubisoft have just announced that a new DLC pack will be available in July for Rainbow Six Vegas 2 for all platforms. The aptly named "fan pack" contains 3 new maps, a new High Stakes setting and a new way to attain ranks and ACES. Now comes the bit that shocks me... This is lifted straight from the press release remember... "Ubisoft has decided to offer this additional content for free to all Rainbow Six fans." Wow, did I read right there? Kudos to Ubisoft for a very noble move in what seems like a money grabbing time within the industry. Anyway, the fan pack includes all the following:


The Rainbow Six Vegas 2 Fan Pack


* Calypso Casino: The fan favorite from Rainbow Six Vegas is back by popular demand. All Rainbow Six Vegas 2 game modes are supported, including co-op terrorist hunt.

* Murdertown - Dark: Experience this map's intense, close-quarter action underneath the cover of darkness.

* CQB Training - Dark: This map is set at nighttime, so expect more tactical assaults as players must use their night vision to spot enemies.



New Ranks. Unlock new ranks beyond the rank of Elite. XP players have already accumulated as Elite will be applied toward the new ranks.


More A.C.E.S. While Adding New Ranks. The A.C.E.S. will be extended to 100 for each of these three categories: Marksman, CQB and Assault. Each A.C.E.S. level earned contains a substantial XP reward. Points that players have already accumulated in each of the categories will be applied toward the new A.C.E.S. levels.


Grenade Indicator. While inside the damage radius of a frag or incendiary grenade, a grenade indicator icon is displayed on the screen.


High Stakes Setting. Experience game modes in a more tactical way using the High Stakes setting, including:


* Limited HUD


o No radar

o Enemies not visible on tactical map

o Grenade indicator is disabled


* Health System


o Health regeneration is disabled

o Altered post-process effects of being in a critical health state


* Take Cover


o Camera view has changed so that players must be exposed in order to see around a corner


* Weapons & Gadgets


o Aim assistance is completely disabled, requiring players to be more precise

o Bullet spread is increased when not zoomed in

o Less ammunition


* Kill Camera is always disabled

* Friendly Fire is always enabled



Weapons and Gadgets Balancing. There are a number of changes to the weapons and gadgets settings in this new package, including:


* Explosion delay of the incendiary grenade has been increased

* Detonation speed of the C4 has been slightly increased

* Increased the damage of Sniper Rifles at long range

* Increased the base accuracy of the Light Machine Guns

* Adjusted the rate of fire for some of the Assault Rifles, Shotguns and an SMG

* Sped up the time it takes to zoom in and out with weapons, making it more responsive


Respawns in Team Deathmatch. Hosts can choose whether or not their match uses random respawns in Team Deathmatch.


Voice Chat. Hosts can choose to enable voice chat between living and dead players of the same team so that when players die they can keep talking with their teammates (Player Match and System Link only).


Score in Deathmatch. Player's score, along with the top opponent, is displayed on the HUD in Deathmatch.


Team Leader Changes. Players now respawn next to the leader by default, unless players specifically choose to spawn back at the base.


Show Dead Players in Lobby. Players that have no lives remaining will have a skull icon displayed next to their name in the lobby screen so that it's easy to tell who is still alive and who has been eliminated.


Terrorist Hunt Spawning. Fixed the terrorist spawning so they don't appear right in front of players, or in areas they have cleared recently.

This is AWESOME news! Plenty more reason to break this game back out and get back into it (once my Bad Company addiction dies down some)...besides the fact it's already insanely awesome.

that's cool. I just wish they'd actually take more time to develop the next one and not make it look like a blurry mess. What's the point in buying the next one if they won't even try to improve the aesthetics? does this mean people who have the "beat all terrorist hunt maps on hardest difficulty" won't have it once we get the new maps?

I don't think you can unachieve an achievement. It'll be just like any other DLC...achievements only apply to the core game.

That is exactly what I was thinking......even though it was supposed to be fixed in the game when it shipped. Still very nice. Thankfully the maps are free as all of them are old.....but welcome additions.

It is here, just downloaded something and my rank jumped. I'll have to take a look at the other stuff.


O.k. so I don't see the "new" map or the night versions of the other two so I guess it is not all here yet.

The maps aren't up yet, but the DLC is awesome. Thanks UBI. I assume the fact that it's free is their tacit admission the game was half-baked at release.
