I just watched a video of this.

Who is down for some Rainbow Six multiplayer Co-Op once this baby is released?

Driver... I know you have to be down with this... right!?!   :wink:

Loren / Ron - What's the release date of this, do you know for sure?  I heard around first week in August, but I am not sure how solid that is.

This link is for you Devil... so you can at least do a bit of homework before blindly saying "IN"    biggrin

Here's an excerpt regarding the new and improved A.I.

Previously, if you walked into a room full of baddies, most of them would simply run for cover and fire at you from their entrenched positions. Now, it seems like every enemy has a different tactic. Some will run for cover, while others will try to sneak around and flank you and your men. This might not seem like much, until you consider that every time you start a new game or load a previous mission, all of the enemies in the level are randomly generated, each with a different type of A.I. than the previous time you played. So, if you enter a hallway and expect Enemy A to hide behind a barrel and shoot at you while Enemy B charges your men, since that's what they did the last time you went through, you'll be in for a rude awakening./


...   ...   ...   ...   ...


Or, check out the following excerpt from the game's first review:

The other little surprise up Ubisoft's sleeve is the clan support, or as they'll be known in Black Arrow squads. Players and their friends will be able to design their own squad and add people from their friends list. The squads have their own insignias, tags and much more, and because of this in-built sense of community, they'll be able to take part in tournaments and pre-arranged matches with other squads. "Isn't that going to be a little tough to organise?" we hear you say. Well, no. No more faffing around with linking gamertags to Xbox.com, no transatlantic phone conversations and no excuses. Each squad will have its own Inbox that will be able to receive messages from other Live players (text based, or voice mail). Each team will have the ability to arrange matches via the Xbox Live menu within the game, and then will be able to check a calendar of events to see when the next match is. The level of support for team-based matches in Black Arrow is, quite frankly, frightening, and this is perhaps the most innovative and brilliant addition to the series.

I just realized this is in the wrong forum.

I never even look at Road to Gold.... so I forgot it was there.

My apologies.

I will be picking this up today or Wednesday for sure, depending on when it actually hits stores in the area.

I will let you all know if it was worth it when I do.
