The latest screenshots of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell have been released by Ubi Soft, and reveal some new gameplay features.

Stealth moves will be required to make your way around the varied environments, and Splinter Cell is quite litterally packed with moves that the gymnasts would have been happy with at the Commonwealth Games, as you can do a diving summersault, climb pipes, hang from ledges, perform drop attacks or shoot from around a corner, before dragging and hiding the bodies.

To help you achieve these tasks whilst playing as Sam Fisher, you'll get to use some nifty high-tech gadgets such as a sticky camera, laser microphones, fibre optic camera and other gizmos - expect to see some of these cropping up in novelty stores across the country before too long!

A huge amount of work has gone in to the FMV and Cut-scenes, and they feature heavily in the story as you find your way in to the high-security strongholds, and destroy data and equipment, whilst making sure that no-one see's you at it - if they do it's simply a matter of putting your skills in to action, and taking them out of the picture, before disappearing without trace.

Light and shade is also said to play it's all important role in Splinter Cell, and thanks to the next generation Unreal engine that the game runs on, plus the specially developed lighting effects, you're able to shoot light sources, and creep around in the shadows so as hopefully no one can see you there.

Splinter Cell is due for release on the Xbox and PC this November, and we're hoping that it'll be on show at ECTS later this month, where we can give you a full rundown on how the game plays.
