I’m sure most of you already heard of Sam Fischer : the Splinter Cell series is probably one of the most popular action games out there as it has litterally catapulted stealth gaming to one of the most popular genres.
Well, Ubi Soft has developed the third installment of this stealth action series. Splinter Cell: Chaos Theory is due to release in March of this year and looks set to live up to the Splinter Cell reputation for being one of the most innovative stealth action gaming series on the market.
The year is 2008. Information Warfare has evolved into the most dangerous threat to global stability. You are Sam Fisher, Third Echelon’s most skilled Splinter Cell operative. You are assigned to execute a hazardous series of operations to investigate and eliminate a new source of information attacks, originating in North Korea. To succeed, you will employ a host of unconventional counterintelligence activities to gather intel, disrupt enemy operations and neutralize adversary targets.
As Information Warfare evolves so must the Splinter Cell. You must penetrate deeper into hostile territory and operate undetected, closer to the enemy than ever before. At your disposal is a lethal array of tactics ranging from Combat Knife techniques, experimental prototype weapons skills, and more radical hand to hand techniques such as the Inverted Chokehold. Experience the thrill of acting as a lone operative fighting tomorrow’s threats in the field, and of cooperating online with a partner to accomplish crucial missions. Die in action, and the free world dies with you.
Below are some screenshots taken of the multiplayer beta version of the game. All the screenshots were taken using an XGI Volari Duo graphics card.
