Ubisoft, one of the world's largest video game publishers, today announced that Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory will include the innovative co-operative multiplayer gameplay showcased at E3 2004, as well as the critically-acclaimed, wildly successful adversarial style of gameplay (known as 'versus mode') introduced by Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow. Ubisoft's Montreal studio is developing both the single-player and cooperative multiplayer portions of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, while Ubisoft's Annecy studio, developers of the versus mode of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow, is creating the versus multiplayer campaign. Full details on the game can be found in the November issue of the Official Xbox Magazine, on newsstands October 5.
"With its focus on working with a partner to gather intel using stealth and smarts, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory's co-operative multiplayer gameplay will offer a completely new multiplayer experience, much as Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow's versus gameplay did," said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing for Ubisoft's North American division. "And with Chaos Theory, the latest and greatest installment in the Splinter Cell franchise, gamers will be able to enjoy both styles as they work together to prevent a global conflict of epic proportions – or simply open a can of whup-ass on their online compatriots."
