Various game magazines, including Official Xbox Magazine, are already claiming that Conviction will re-invent player's perception of next-gen gameplay, graphical detail, and innovation.
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction is the fifth installment in the Splinter Cell series of video games. Conviction will be developed by Ubisoft Montreal (developers of Splinter Cell, Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory and the 6th generation versions of Splinter Cell: Double Agent) and published by Ubisoft. While not much is known about the game in its current state, 1UP.com confirmed the game's exclusivity to the Xbox 360 and Games for Windows platforms.
The game takes place in broad daylight this time, but don't worry, it is still a stealth action game. At the beginning of the game, Sam learns that Anna Grimsdottir (Anna is the person in charge of intelligence gathering for Third Echelon, and an old friend of Sam's) is in danger so Sam joins up with Third Echelon once more in order to help. Unfortunately, 3E is not what it used to be, and Sam frequently gets incomplete and bad intel, as well as the wrong equipment. All this, and the 3E bosses are in the middle of a political squabble for control. Sam eventually finds out that the threat is actually coming from inside Third Echelon itself, so he leaves and basically becomes a fuigitive. Looks like Sam is on the wrong side of the law once more, this time for real.
