|The year is 2008. Information Warfare has evolved into the most dangerous
threat to global stability. You are Sam Fisher, Third Echelon's most
skilled Splinter Cell operative. You are assigned to execute a hazardous
series of operations to investigate and eliminate a new source of information
attacks, originating in North Korea. To succeed, you will employ a host
of unconventional counterintelligence activities to gather intel, disrupt
enemy operations and neutralize adversary targets. As Information Warfare
evolves, so must the Splinter Cell. You must penetrate deeper into hostile
territory and operate undetected, closer to the enemy than ever before.
At your disposal is a lethal array of tactics ranging from Combat Knife
techniques, experimental prototype weapons skills, and more radical
hand-to-hand techniques such as the Inverted Chokehold. Experience the
thrill of acting as a lone operative fighting tomorrow's threats in
the field, and of cooperating online with a partner to accomplish crucial
missions. Die in action, and the free world dies with you.
