Ubisoft Australia has announced the local arrival of Splinter Cell: Conviction on Mac. Good thing you talked your boss into those “productive” iMacs, isn’t it?

A video for Splinter Cell: Conviction has popped up on the net, and it shows what’s going on in Sam’s world – espionage, punching, shooting, and what sounds like a bit of blackmail.

The co-op mode includes a prologue to the main storyline, which takes place two-months before the main plot, where players will fill the shoes of Daniel Sloane-Suarez (Archer) and Mikhail Loskov (Kestrel).
This campaign details how EMP’s were freed by rogue factions cloaked within Russian Intelligence before the Russian Mafia stepped in.
“They don’t really like each other or trust each other,” said the game’s co-op designer, Patrick Redding. “But you’ll hear in their dialogue, moving through the missions, that their trust is slowly building. If Sam Fisher is our panther, then these two guys are like a couple of Velociraptors taking down the herd.
“You are going into this really seedy, gritty underbelly where we can put the whole graphical horsepower of our engine and the Xbox 360 to work giving you the lurid texture of this place.”
The challenge modes, called Third Echelon Missions, are contained in six different maps based on the four levels from the co-operative campaign – two that are mode exclusive. The four revealed so far are: Hunter, Infiltration, Last Stand, and Face Off.
Sounds lovely. Hit the links for the rest, and watch the video below the break, courtesy of IGN. Game’s out on PC and 360 in February.
Thanks, The Lost Gamer.

Splinter Cell Conviction is based on fact. Fighting fact. A video Ubi’s going to release tomorrow will prove that fact beyond all doubt.
“In this video, the developers of Splinter Cell Conviction give you an inside look at how the Israeli martial art Krav Maga and real-life firearm techniques inspired Conviction’s new gameplay,” said a rep today.
“You’ll also learn about Sam’s newest toys, such as EMP grenades and improvised gadgets, and get a look at how the storyline will be taken in surprising new directions following the tragic events of Double Agent.”
Tomorrow morning. November 5. At 9am GMT. Fact.

If you were holding out for Splinter Cell Conviction to eventually make its way to PS3, you’re out of luck. Ubi just said on its forums that it really is an MS exclusive thanks to a “link of heart” between the franchise and the platform.
“Splinter Cell Conviction is a true Microsoft exclusive title and there are no plans to have Splinter Cell Conviction on other platforms,” said the company.
“There are several reasons behind this choice. First of all, Splinter Cell games are historically linked with Microsoft platforms. The first Splinter Cell on the original Xbox was one of the first games to fully exploit the console’s technical possibilities. At that time, Microsoft really believed in the game potential and provided strong support to promote it. So, there is a “link of heart” between the franchise and the platform. Some games are like this (think of Final Fantasy for instance).
“The second reason behind this choice is purely linked to production. Having a single target platform means that we can optimize the game even further, because we only have one type of – console – hardware to support.”
It’s out at the end of this year. Assuming you’re not solely reliant on PS3, obviously.

Sam Fisher may be hard as nails, but it sounds as though Splinter Cell: Conviction may be his last foray into the world of espionage. One more game and he’ll be in a wheelchair.
“He’s pretty old, actually,” one of the game’s developers told us, talking at E3, adding that Fisher is in his “50s” in Conviction.
Sam apparently doesn’t mind facing the rigours of middle-age, however, and was seen in fine form in LA earlier this month, torturing and killing with gay abandon.
Conviction’s out for PC and 360 towards the end of the year.

Over on both retail sites, the Tom Clancy tactical action game is listed as coming out June 30 for both PC and Xbox 360.
Sometimes these dates are an estimate, other times they know more than we do.
We’ll see once E3 hits or the official announcement comes out. Whichever happens first.

The official website for Splinter Cell: Conviction is offering up a big tease of sorts.
The site reads: “Site currently under investigation” and “If you have any information on Sam Fisher, please report it here.”
Said link takes you to the game forums, and not much else is known. Possibly a reveal of sorts soon.
Whatever it is, it’s got the forums buzzing.

According to this Sarcastic Gamer rumour, Michael Ironside’s been dropped as the voice of 100-a-day power-smoker Sam Fisher in the upcoming Splinter Cell Conviction.
The site puts this down to “word on the street”, and nothing official’s been said. Considering the game’s development appears to be pretty much in disarray at the moment, this wouldn’t come as the greatest shock in the world.
