Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Hits Beta
8:18 AM | Andy Largent | Comment on this story

Aspyr Media sends quick word this morning that Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell is now officially in beta testing. The company is hoping to release the game as soon as next month, and this progress puts them on track to do so.

In case you're unfamiliar with Splinter Cell, here's a rundown of some of the title's features from Aspyr's mini-site:

  • Covert stealth-action featuring a compelling original storyline and characters inspired by the world of Tom Clancy and endorsed by the famous author.
  • Revolutionary lighting, shadowing, animation, physics, and sound effects create an astonishingly realistic tension-filled experience.
  • Comprehensive stealth techniques including sniping, split jumping, zip lining, rappelling, and using human shields bring gameplay possibilities to a new level.
  • Experimental intelligence gadgets (night/thermal vision goggles, prototype weapons and surveillance gear, etc.) give Fisher the edge against his enemies.
For more on Splinter Cell, head over to its website. Also remember you can pre-order the title at the IMG Store for $43.95 if you're a IMG Pro/MacGames DVD subscriber ($48.95 otherwise).
