IMG has posted a first look preview of one of the two new games Aspyr Media announced on Friday, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell, as with all first looks, the preview relies heavily on already existing versions of the game or articles that discuss them, but still offers all the information you'll need, including basic plot and storyline, gameplay mechanics, the game's famous lighting system, and more. Here's an excerpt from the preview:

Sam can also arm himself with a silenced pistol, but by far the most useful weapon he can wield is the SC-20K M.A.W.S. (Modular Assault Weapon System). While this gun is capable of firing standard ammunition, its main use can be found in its multipurpose launcher, which can fire a variety of useful objects. When a mission requires a zero body count, Sam can use either ring airfoil projectiles or sticky shockers to incapacitate his targets. He can also fire sticky cameras that can be remotely operated to get a better view of difficult areas. A more inventive device is the distraction camera, which not only functions as a sticky camera, but can also whistle to attract nearby enemies. When they get close enough, the camera can discharge enough sleeping gas to knock out anyone nearby.
For more, be sure to check out the full preview, found at the link below, and keep a look out for Splinter Cell, coming to Mac this October.
