Gamers are finally going to get their hands on Splinter Cell Conviction
this week as Ubisoft announced today that they will be releasing a demo of a game this Thursday.
The demo will contain one level from the Michigan Avenue Reservoir level of the game and according to Ubi it will serve as "an introduction to the game’s core gameplay mechanics for Splinter Cell fans. Gamers will have the opportunity to find out for themselves why brand-new innovative features such as Mark and Execute and Last Known Position have made Conviction one of the most anticipated games of the year."
This is the first Splinter Cell game I've been excited about as I was never a huge fan of the stealth heavy focus of the earlier games. The final game will ship to stores on April 13th.
