Rainbow Six Vegas screen explosion

A trio of Rainbow Six screenshots breach the CVG fortress and rappel into a laps

Apart from touting the gorgeous next-gen graphics, these new Rainbow Six Vegas shots show Tom Clancy's men doing what they do best; dramatically clearing doors, rappelling down buildings and pointing at the terrorists that need to be shot next.

In case you haven't been paying attention, the game sadly isn't about the team's terrorist-busting stag do, but pits you against international terrorist Irena Morales, who has rounded-up a group of his bestest terrorist friends to blow-up Las Vegas. Playing as Rainbow' leader Logan Keller, you and your team have a real-time-ish limit of one night to stop the damn, dirty terrorists in their tracks.

Rainbow Six: Vegas should be out for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 at the end of the year. Lets hope it turns out as good as the last 'Clancy offering, Advanced Warfighter.
