Splinter Cell: Conviction gets co-op
A separate co-operative campaign will preface the main single player story in Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction reports the Official Xbox Magazine UK.
Sam Fisher is benched for the mode, replaced instead by Daniel Sloane-Suarez (callsign Archer) and Mikhail Loskov (codename Kestrel). The pair are sent to Russia to deal with criminal activity two months in advance of the main campaign's start.
Surprisingly, the co-op campaign looks to be sizable: around six hours long. That's pretty significant when you consider that it's a supplement to the main game.
Splinter Cell: Conviction is expected February 23 in the US, February 26 in the UK and will be available for Xbox 360 and PC.
