EGTV: Conviction trailer

Sam Fisher's new look.

If you've been loitering around Eurogamer TV this morning you will have noticed the first ever trailer for Splinter Cell: Conviction.

The video emerged from the Ubisoft event in Paris, and shows Sam Fisher getting into various dust-ups in normal everyday environments. But rather than use high-tech gadgets to gain the edge, he uses the crowd, his fists, and objects around him to prevail.

It's the fifth game in stealth-action series, and is promising to be completely different to what's come before it. We like the idea of it being more Jason Bourne than James Bond.

It's in development at Assassin's Creed studio Ubisoft Montreal, and is due to appear on PC and Xbox 360 in the fourth quarter of 2007.

We'll be bringing you our thoughts on the game from the "Ubidays" event as soon as we can.

Head over to Eurogamer TV to see Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Conviction in action.
