Splinter Cell: Conviction is the fifth and latest game in the Splinter Cell franchise. The famous stealth-action series from Tom Clancy and Ubisoft finally returns after what will have been a four year hiatus. The last game in the series was Splinter Cell: Double Agent.

It will be released today (April 13th) in America, in Europe on April 15th and in the UK on April 16th. Exclusively for Xbox 360, PC and iPhone (with the iPhone version being developed by Gameloft).

In Splinter Cell: Conviction all of the rules players have known from the franchises beginning have changed, as the storyline takes a dramatic turn that will reinvent the Splinter Cell franchise forever and brings it into the modern age. Complete with gorgeous graphics and an all-new visual effect where key events/objectives are “screened” onto the environment itself (this can even include full movie clips in addition to text and pictures, as can be seen in the screenshot above) which allows the player to be informed without the flow of the game being broken. The effect is simply stunning.

Here is a list of the characters that will be appearing in Splinter Cell: Conviction:

Anna “Grim” Grímsdóttir
Tom Reed
Sam Fisher
Sarah Fisher
Splinter Cell Agent Archer
Voron Agent Kestrel

Storyline
A few years have passed since the cliff hanger conclusion of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Double Agent, in which Agent Sam Fisher undertook a particularly dirty mission, full of questionable actions, in the shadow of the inexplicable and unmourned death of his daughter. Fisher is now a renegade operative digging into the events of the past and he doesn’t like what he has found. His personal investigation into his daughter’s death reveals that he’s been betrayed by his former agency, the Third Echelon. The agency responds by pursuing him, but as he works to elude them he becomes aware of a deadly terrorist plot that threatens millions. He is uniquely positioned and prepared to act against this, but success is doubtful without the help of former friends from the Third Echelon team, resulting in a series of life and death situations for himself and the country where trust can by no means be assumed.

Splinter Cell: Conviction will play completely different than previous entries with a bigger focus on great gunplay and action, although stealth will also play a huge role. New moves include: “Mark & Execute” (allows you to “paint” a number of targets then quickly execute them with a well placed shot) and “Last Known Position”, which leaves a transparent figure of Sam’s last known location where enemies thought they saw him. The game also features an experience system where you are rewarded for completing objectives and can then spend the experience points earned on upgrading weapons and gadgets to turn Sam Fisher into an even deadlier killer.

Here is the official Splinter Cell: Conviction “Characters” trailer to celebrate the release of the game. Although it really details more about the story than the characters listed above.
