We’re halfway through the month, which means another game is set to be stripped of its price tag courtesy of the Games With Gold scheme, and whilst this one has seemingly taken a age to be put free, Sam Fisher’s stealthy exploits in Splinter Cell: Conviction are now available at no extra cost to Xbox Live Gold members. FINALLY!
The no-holds-barred stealth action of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Conviction follows former agent Sam Fisher as he investigates the death of his daughter. Hot on the trail of a lead, it’s uncovered that that his previous employers, the Third Echelon, have betrayed him. To make matters worse, a deadly terrorist plot threatens the lives of millions of people and as a rebel, Sam’s got to handle it on his own. Fortunately, he’ll be armed with an arsenal of high-tech weapons and the elite skills he to tackle those responsible, getting justice by any means necessary – even if that requires working outside of the law.
At the time of release in 2010, Splinter Cell: Conviction was full of innovative ideas like the ability to tag enemies and eliminate them with the Mark and Execute feature, as well as the Last Known Position system which had your foes primed for flanking whilst they were checking out your previous sighting. Should you wish to see how it holds up nowadays, Splinter Cell: Conviction is currently free to download on Xbox One, via the power of backward compatibility, and Xbox 360 (usually priced at £8.99).
Just head on over to the Microsoft Store and grab it before 31st July!
