Convicted confirmed for Xbox 360 and PC
Ubisoft's successful Splinter Cell series is set to continue with Splinter Cell: Conviction later this year on Xbox 360 and PC.
The Official Xbox Magazine claims that the fifth title in the series will 're-invent player's perception of next-gen gameplay, graphical detail, and innovation. ' Unlike previous Spinter Cell games, Splinter Cell: Conviction will be set almost entirely during the day-time, so sneaking around in the shadows with those night vision goggles may well be a thing of the past.
Speaking to IGN, Ubisoft said that they're planning to take the series in a totally new direction "[Double Agent] was good, but repetitive over time. After three games we decided to make a big turnaround in the franchise," said senior prodcer, Mathieu Ferland.
This time round, Sam Fisher is a fugitive, pursued by the government he used to serve. To survive he'll need to create an underground network of allies, but will be without his usual assortment of gadgets.
"Improvisation is a concept we wanted to bring to the gamers, as we felt it was one of the strongest shared elements of all spy agents. They have to be able to deal with anything, anytime, anywhere - [but] faster, smarter," Ferland added.
There are still very few details on the game, but we hear that more details will be released before the end of May.
