Co-op and crowds to feature, but in a whole new setup.
"Co-op missions will be included but they won't resemble the double-team style of previous games, nor will they be run-throughs of the single player mode. Meanwhile, versus matchups will feature the impressive-looking civilian crowd that mills around during Sam Fisher's Washington-set escapades.
These intriguing hints appear in a deep-detail feature focusing on Splinter Cell Conviction's innovations in this month's issue of Edge magazine. Elsewhere, examples of Fisher's new objectives, abilities and threats are also laid out.
For instance, in one mission Sam finds himself needing to place an explosive under a target's car as well as locate a nearby security office and wipe the contents of a surveillance tape. The order you tackle each problem is a free choice, though while pondering your next move there'll be a significant police presence patrolling the area and searching for any suspicious characters."
