In Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, the year is 2008. Citywide blackouts, stock exchange sabotage, electronic hijacking of national defense systems: This is information warfare. To prevent such attacks, operatives must infiltrate hostile territory and aggressively collect critical intelligence, getting closer than ever to enemy soldiers.

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory includes a single-player campaign that follows gaming icon Sam Fisher on his latest mission to maintain world peace, a two-player co-op campaign that redefines collaborative gaming, and a completely updated Versus multiplayer campaign (which first appeared to critical acclaim in last year's Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow(TM)) and offers gamers complete immersion in modern stealth action and endless hours of replayability. The co-op mode is available for split-screen and online play for Xbox and online for PC; both the Nintendo GameCube and PlayStation 2 versions offer co-op play through offline split-screen only. The Versus mode is available for online play with Xbox, PlayStation 2 and PC, and is not available on the Nintendo GameCube.

With Splinter Cell Chaos Theory, Ubisoft's celebrated Montreal (single-player and co-op) and Annecy (Versus) development studios continue to push the interactive and technological possibilities of video gaming. The game boasts a totally open level design, a completely immersive and interactive environment, and advanced AI in which enemies are aware of their environment and remember past events, making them smarter and even more dangerous. In addition, Splinter Cell Chaos Theory delivers the best graphics in this generation of games. Based on stellar advance reviews from the gaming industry's leading publications, the features of Splinter Cell Chaos Theory features -- all courtesy of cutting-edge visual and sound technologies -- have set an industry benchmark once again.

"Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory is definitely the biggest -- and, based on the incredible advance word of mouth, the best -- game that Ubisoft has ever created," said Tony Kee, vice president of marketing for Ubisoft. "From Sam's latest single-player mission to the incredible co-op and Versus multiplayer campaigns, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory melds innovative gameplay with the latest technology to deliver a completely immersive, endlessly thrilling experience that stands as a crowning achievement for the already legendary Splinter Cell franchise."

Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Chaos Theory carries an ESRB rating of "M" (Mature) for Blood, Strong Language and Violence, with a suggested retail price of $49.99.

The year is 2008. Citywide blackouts ... stock exchange sabotage ... electronic hijacking of national defense systems ... this is information warfare, which has become the most dangerous threat to global stability. To prevent these attacks, you must infiltrate deep into hostile territory and aggressively collect critical intelligence, closer than ever to enemy soldiers. You are Sam Fisher, the NSA's most elite black-ops agent. To achieve your mission you will operate undetected, kill at close range, attack with your combat knife, shoot with the modular SC-20K rifle and use radical suppression techniques such as the inverted neck snap. Work alone, or enjoy the thrill of cooperative multiplayer infiltration missions, where teamwork is the ultimate weapon.
