Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard Coming Exclusively To Sony’s Xperia PLAY

by on June 2, 2011

Sony Ericsson is again teaming up with Gameloft, a leading global publisher of digital and social games, to deliver an exclusive experience for its flagship gaming smartphone – Xperia PLAY – with exclusive access to the all-action spy thriller shooter game Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard, adapted from the famous Ubisoft video game franchise.

Taking full advantage of the smartphone’s outstanding graphical capabilities and game-changing control pad, Xperia PLAY brings the high-octane international action adventure to the Android operating system for the first time.

Adapted from the famous Ubisoft’s video game franchise, Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six is one of the most popular video game brands. It’s a high-energy tactical first-person shooter game based on a fictional international counter-terrorist unit called “Rainbow.” Focusing more on stealth and tactics than firepower alone, weapons (including assault rifles and high-caliber handguns), uniforms and equipment are chosen to suit each operative’s skills and the mission.

“Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard with its big fan community and fascinating gameplay is a perfect addition to the quality releases for Xperia PLAY,” said Robert Styppa, Vice President Western Europe for Sony Ericsson. “The stunning graphics and the unique possibilities with the full gamepad give you a unique user experience.”

“We are very excited to continue our support of Xperia PLAY with an exclusive release of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard,” said Gonzague de Vallois, Senior Vice President Publishing of Gameloft. “This title will further enrich our game lineup for Xperia™ PLAY and we’re very pleased that the device’s fans truly enjoy this first full-featured smartphone including an exclusive gaming interface.”

During June and July 2011 consumers across Western Europe who have an Xperia Play will be able to download a free copy of Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six: Shadow Vanguard. During this time the game will be available for Android only on the Sony Ericsson Xperia PLAY.
