First Splinter Cell: Conviction co-op footage sneaks up

Here comes the first footage from Splinter Cell: Conviction‘s reportedly six-hour-long cooperative mode, explaining a bit of the back story and showing some of the moves the duo can pull off in the environments they’ll be visiting. If we were to go by what co-op game designer Patrick Redding has previously said, the 2-player mode should make the players feel “like a couple of Velociraptors taking down the herd” and “put the whole graphical horsepower of our engine and the Xbox 360 to work.”
