Blue's News has noted the posting of some recent information at Pie's Tactics regarding an upcoming expansion pack to Rogue Spear, the popular tactical FPS game. Announced by Ubi Soft at E3. This expansion, titled Black Thorn, will function both as a stand-alone package as well as a Rogue Spear expansion.
The title is currently being developed by Ubi Soft's Montreal office, with members of Red Storm helping with the design of the maps. A total of 16 maps will be available, including 10 single-player and 6 multiplayer maps. The names of 5 of the multiplayer maps are given as Alaska Depot, City Streets Small, Diamond Inclusion, Hidden Camp, and Office Building. Two of the single-player maps are named as Kirtmand Zoo and Diamond Edge.
The story line for Black Thorn will center around a group of copycat terrorists that are attempting to recreate terrorist actions from the past 50 years. Current weapons and day tactics will be used by the Rainbow Six team to complete each mission.
To aid in the missions, 14 new weapons are being made available, with two of the guns being terrorist-only models. They contain a wealth of popular modern guns (Counter-Strike players should be instantly familiar with the line-up), including the Sig P228, the FN P90, the M60, and the FAMAS G2.
The popular "Lone Wolf" multiplayer game will also be made official in this release. Lone Wolf pits one player, armed with his weapons of choice, against up to 8 enemies armed only with pistols.
The PC version of this game is scheduled to ship around October/November of 2001. A Mac version has yet to be announced, but as it can be run through the Urban Operations mod interface this will be quite feasible. We'll keep you updated with any new information we receive.
