Ubisoft announced today that Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas will fight on the PlayStation Portable, alongside previously announced versions for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Rather than duplicate its console counterparts, the PSP version of the tactical FPS will follow a parallel story, offering both single-player and multiplayer action.
In the portable Vegas, players will switch between field operative Brian Armstrong and sniping expert Shawn Rivers. Both operatives are supporting fellow Rainbow members Keller, Park and Walter -- the stars of the console version -- in saving Las Vegas from terrorist destruction.
To support players in their counter-terrorist action, Rainbow Six Vegas offers PSP-specific controls, high-tech equipment (such as snake cams for "tagging" terrorists prior to entering a room), and a third-person view when taking cover. Building stats will unlock bonus content, including Terrorist Hunt Mode, where players begin from different points on single-player maps and hunt terrorists one at a time.
In addition to single-player action, Rainbow Six Vegas for the PSP will support multiplayer fights via wireless or Internet connections. Players can compete in Survival and Team Survival modes on six "classic" Rainbow Six maps.
The PSP edition of Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Vegas is in development at Ubisoft's Quebec City studio, and is slated for release this holiday season.
