Ubisoft unveils Splinter Cell special edition

Exclusive game mode, armour, statue, etc.

Ubisoft has unveiled the Collector's Edition of Splinter Cell: Conviction.

Due out alongside the regular game for PC and Xbox 360 on 26th February, the Conviction CE consists of the game, a statue of Sam Fisher wearing Jason Bourne's top and crushing some Third Echelon goggles under his foot, an official soundtrack featuring "more than 17 tracks" and a steelbook case.

There are also in-game goodies included, most notably "Infiltration Mode", where you must "eliminate all hostiles in the mission area without being detected". You also get a special playable skin ("Shadow Armour"), and early access to the SC300, SR2 and MP5 weapons.

Ubisoft plans to show off the game's multiplayer modes for the first time in a trailer due on Xbox Live tomorrow at 5pm UK time. You can read our hands-on impressions of those modes on Friday, 18th December at 5pm assuming the embargo holds.

Meanwhile, there's a Collector's Edition walkthrough video on Eurogamer TV showcasing the above.
