Splinter Cell: Conviction will have you stealthily taking down foes for 6 hours, and if that was not enough to quench your thirst, there will also be some standalone challenges when the game arrives next year according to OXM UK, video after the read.
The two co-op modes include a prologue to the main storyline, which takes place two months before the main plot. Players will take the role of Daniel Sloane-Suarez (Archer) and Mikhail Loskov (Kestrel).
This particular campaign details how EMP's were freed by rogue factions aliased within Russian Intelligence before the Russian Mafia stepped in.
"They don't really like each other or trust each other," the game's co-op designer Patrick Redding said. "But you'll hear in the dialogue, moving through missions, that their trust is slowing building. If Sam Fisher is our panther, then these two guys are like a couple of Velociraptors taking down the heard.
"You are going into this really seedy, gritty underbelly where you can put the whole graphical horse power of our engine and the Xbox 360 to work giving you the lurid texture of this place."
The challenge modes dubbed "Third Echelon Missions", are contained in six different maps based on the four levels of the co-operative campaign - two that are exclusive. Here are the four revealed thus far: Hunter, Infiltration, Last Stand, and Face Off.
