Rainbow Six 3: Black Arrow Ships
August 5, 2004

TOM CLANCY’S RAINBOW SIX 3 BLACK ARROW™ SHIPS FOR XBOX

Team Rainbow Returns to Save the World from Terror – and Dominate Xbox Live

San Francisco, CA – August 9, 2004 – Ubisoft, one of the world’s largest videogame publishers, announced today that Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3 Black Arrow™ for the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft has shipped for retail. Developed by Ubisoft Montreal, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3 Black Arrow improves upon one of the most successful Xbox™ Live games of all time with new single- and multiplayer missions and modes, split-screen for cooperative gameplay, and a host of new features that maximize the possibilities of Xbox Live. In fact, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3 Black Arrow is the one of the first games to deliver new Xbox Live features, such as user-created tournaments, in-game messenging, and clan statistics.  Rated ‘M’ for Mature, the game carries an MSRP of $39.99.

Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3 Black Arrow continues in the vein of last year’s mega-hit, which received a number of awards, including Console First-Person Action Game of the Year from the Academy of Interactive Arts & Sciences (AIAS), Shooter of the Year from GMR Magazine, and Best First-Person Shooter and Best Online Game from IGN. In the game, players command a four-man international anti-terrorist squad comprised of the cream of the crop from the United States, Germany, Britain, and France as they infiltrate a ring of nefarious terrorists and halt their bloody quest for weapons and power. The popular voice-activated command system, individual personalities of the team members, and comprehensive Xbox Live multiplayer capabilities will be familiar to current devotees, while the new missions and features will attract a new crop of players.

“With eagerly-anticipated new multiplayer modes, a host of new Xbox Live features and fourteen multiplayer maps, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six 3 Black Arrow takes last year’s best Xbox Live experience – and most successful title – and makes it even better,” said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing for Ubisoft. “What’s more, a new split-screen feature for offline co-op play and enhanced AI significantly enhances the offline replay value.  Gamers, close the curtains and kiss your loved ones goodbye, because you’re not going to be able to put this one down for months.”
