SAN FRANCISCO- May 17th, 2010 – Ubisoft announced today that the Deniable Ops “Insurgency Pack” downloadable content (DLC) for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Conviction™ for the Windows® PC games and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft will be available for download on May 27th, 2010. The DLC will be available for 800 Microsoft Points or $9.99.
The critically acclaimed Stealth-Action hit of the spring takes aim at Xbox LIVE® with additional content this month. The Insurgency Pack delivers brand-new missions for Archer and Kestrel on four additional maps for Deniable Ops modes. Take on challenges in Hunter, Face Off, Infiltration or Last Stand to unlock new achievements and play in settings from the docks of San Francisco to a New Orleans cemetery, a prison in Portland to a hidden research complex in Salt Lake City. Sam Fisher may have his conviction, but Black Arrow is still out there – waiting for him.
The achievements hunters will be glad to know that 250 new points can be unlocked in this DLC.
@GriftGFX: Absolutely. It generates good PR. EA does it with the "Free on the House" games. And Ubisoft did it with the "Ubi30" games. Still, it's generous to allow people to play these games for free (0 minute ago)
@Sdarts: I guess.. but it's also promotional and basically cost free. (2 minutes ago)
I have actually thought about what it means to take a human life, and I'm absolutely certain anyone with half a consciousness has done it too. Road to Perdition is great movie about this. (4 minutes ago)
@MrWhite: The new Tomb Raider games are great and very fun to play. As for the "killing hundreds" argument, If I had to kill hundreds of evil men to survive and save my loved ones, would do it as well (6 minutes ago)
Also, I didn't say anything about politics within the company. Only that the company giving a game for free is "generous" no matter how you look at it, since they did it of their own free will. (7 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Angelina Jolie looked fierce and was physically strong as well. In the second movie, she was so strong they had to use a man with a wig as a double for dangerous scenes. (8 minutes ago)
@Sdarts: I think it's probably more complicated than you think. And sure Blizzard is "free" but don't think that's a blank check for creators. That's just not how it ever works. (10 minutes ago)
