R6 Vegas glitches to be patched

Single-player and multiplayer bugs to be crushed by a mighty Ubisoft boot of patch justice

Ubisoft is shortly to patch its tactical shooter Rainbow Six: Vegas (Xbox 360) and has been good enough to release a weighty list of what's being addressed. So, if bugs and crashes have been plaguing your assault on those naughty terrorist blokes and causing you to rip handfuls of hair out in frustration, hopefully we can now say: calm down dear.

According to a post from an Ubisoft staffer on the official community forums, this patch was already in the works a few weeks back and, as a result, they say that "some of the recently discovered issues may not be addressed right away. We do know about these critical issues and are planning to address them as well."
