Finnish Magazine Pelaaja has leaked the first details on the next Splinter Cell game called Splinter Cell: Conviction. The game is currently console exclusive to Xbox 360, as was stated a while back.
The game is said to take place in daylight for the majority of the game. Sam Fisher finds out that Anna Grimsdottir (Intelligence gatherer for the Third Echelon) is in some sort of danger, so Sam rejoins 3E to help. However, 3E is not the organisation it used to be and Sam is provided with incomplete or bad intel along with the wrong equipment for his missions.
To make matters worse, the 3E bosses are in a political power struggle to gain control of 3E. Sam eventually finds out the threat to Grimsdottir comes from within 3E. Sam leaves 3E and effectively becomes a fugitive, but unlike Double Agent, this time it’s for real.
Since the game is in broad daylight, Sam will have to use another form of cover to avoid being caught, namely, people. Much like fellow Ubisoft game Assassins Creed, Sam will need to blend in with people to survive.
Ubisoft’s UbiDays event in Paris is just three weeks away. Expect some solid new details on Splinter Cell: Conviction during the 23rd and 24th of May.
