Sneaky Double Agent multiplayer screens

The new Splinter Cell's stealthy multiplayer mode on show

Fresh screenshots of the graphically spectacular Splinter Cell: Double Agent always please, but this is a particularly exciting batch for us because we're more than a bit partial to the series' fantastic stealth multiplayer mode.

Not sampled Splinter Cell's multiplayer mode before? Well, basically it pits a team of mercs against a team of spies, the former in a FPS-style setup and the later in a third-person sneaking mode. You can see Double Agent's visually-overhauled multiplayer in these shots, which now features AI bot options and bumped-up support for up to six players.

Splinter Cell: Double Agent is still expected in shops this September. We'll see you online. Or rather, you won't see us. Ho-ho.
