New pot of Rainbow Six gold

Feast your eyes on some stonking new screenshots and a developer video

As the launch of Rainbow Six: Vegas looms, those lovely chaps at Ubisoft have sorted us out with a fistful of new screenshots, as well as a developer-narrated video explaining some aspects of its gameplay.

Which, natch, we reproduce here for your general enlightenment. Alas, we can't yet report that the game has a firm release date -- Ubisoft will only say Q3 2006. But the latest, most sophisticated Tom Clancy special forces epic is bound one of your and our most wanted items this Christmas. We'll be heading Vegas-ward soon to shoot some dice and find out just what the R6 has in store, so keep in tuned for more Vegas goodness soon.
