Next-gen Splinter Cell shots

Here's a bunch of lush new shots from Splinter Cell Double Agent on Xbox 360 showing off the game's next-gen sheen, and hopefully easing the pain of having to wait until September to finally go undercover with Mr Fisher.

Double Agent regularly buddies you up with AI comrades to assist in completing your mission, exploiting the hugely popular co-op gameplay from Splinter Cell Chaos Theory. You can see Sam and a fellow convict assaulting a guard in a classic pincer movement in these screens.

Of course, given Sam's double agent status you'll often have to juggle conflicting objectives, with your government masters ordering you to save a hostage while your terrorist 'friends' charge you with executing him, for example.
