Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell: Conviction is the latest game to join Microsoft’s Backwards Compatibility line up for Xbox One.
Released in 2010 for Xbox 360, the Ubisoft Montreal developed stealth-action title saw iconic actor Michael Ironside voice series protagonist Sam Fisher for a final time, having portrayed the character since the series’ inception in 2002. Conviction also introduced new features to the series such as Mark & Execute, a nifty little feature that allows Fisher to mark up a trio of unsuspecting enemies at once before executing them all in quick and expert fashion. Fisher could also interrogate suspects using the game’s environment, which proved to be very entertaining as the hard arse proceeds to smash a bad guys head into a filthy toilet until he talks.
Splinter Cell: Conviction is available on Xbox One right now. If you happen to own an Xbox 360 copy then simply put in your disc and away you go. If not, a digital version of the game can be purchased from the Xbox Store for £4.49 as part of Microsoft’s Deals of the Week.
While we absolutely loved the new look Sam Fisher in both Conviction and its successor Blacklist minus Ironside, we’re still hopeful of a brand new game in the series at some point in the near future.
