The latest issue of PC Zone, out on December 3, has details on the multiplayer mode for Splinter Cell: Conviction.
In the mag, it will discuss “hands-on, co-op reveal and a brand new mode.”
Exciting stuff, there.

Future Publishing is wondering why its rival, Imagine Publishing, has not released circulation figures since launching Total PC Gaming in 2007. As you do.
Speaking in an interview with GamesIndustry.biz, James Binns was curious as to why the publisher had yet to reveal an ABC for the title.
“What’s interesting in the PC market is we had a competitor launch that hasn’t revealed ABCs yet,” said Binns.
“Total PC Gaming has talked up quite a big talk and they’re 16 issues in now and haven’t owned up to their copy sales. If it was still 16 issues in and I was still hiding – it’s weird for them to boast so much and then show so little,” he added.
Imagine’s Managing Director Damian Butt rebutted, saying the reason why an official figure hasn’t been released was that the magazine simply wasn’t established enough yet.
“We would always be at a massive competitive disadvantage against those rival magazines that have had years to build up subs and export sales”, he said.
“Which as you can see from the ABCs for PC Gamer and PC Zone are quite considerable.”

You’re cast as average joe Adam Jensen, who works as a private security officer at a technology lab specialising in biomechanical augmentations, a forerunner to the sort of nanotechnology shown in the original Deus Ex. One day the path of his life is unexpectedly altered as a team of black ops commandos break into his company’s HQ, and using a security plan from Jensen’s own hand, a mass slaughter ensues and the conspiracy begins.
“Deus Ex 3′s vision of the future sees holographic screens flicker atop ferries moving back and forth in front of the Shanghai skyline, now split into two layers with the rich on the top and the poor in perpetual twilight below,” says PCZ.
More through there. No date, though. There’s a ten-page feature in the issue, out October 9.

Ram Raider’s rumouring that longstanding PCZone editor Will Porter is to quit, following previous recent departures from Ed Zitron and Jamie Sefton.
Staffer Jon Blyth is also thought to be leaving.
The Future magazine has, according to the mysterious blogger, had its page count and budget reduced, and its frequency pushed up to 14 issues a year.
Anyone who’s ever spoken to any of these guys will know that none of this comes as a gigantic shock, frankly.
