Way back in July, we told you
that the next chapter of the Sam Fisher story would be out on newsstands long-before the game would hit after getting delayed
until 2010. Although I had completely forgot about it, I did notice on my local grocery news stand a couple weeks back that the 6th book in the series is now available with Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction
. I haven’t gotten too deep into it yet, but it will have some plot spoilers for the upcoming game, so if you prefer your story to be played, rather than read, I suggest waiting until the game releases before giving it a read. Otherwise, pick it up and possibly gather some background info and tips before you get into the game that may help you out.
One other note about any Tom Clancy book, it is always loaded with good info on the filler pages. I did find a page near the end that is promoting a forthcoming HAWX book in January 2010. Much like the EndWar novel, I hope this turns into a viable read.
