The action-adventure stealth video game was originally released back in April of 2010 and was followed up by Splinter Cell Blacklist. Players of the game are in control of Sam Fisher and need to recover weapons of mass destruction before they are sold on the black market. New gameplay features in this title include: “Mark & Execute,” the ability to interrogate characters in real-time, and also use objects in the surrounding environment against them.
The addition of this title comes one week after Microsoft added The Darkness II, Spec Ops: The Line, and The Misadventures of PB Winterbottom to the Backward Compatible catalog. As always, if you own this title digitally it should now automatically appear in the ready to download section on your Xbox One. If you own the disc, all you need to do is pop it into your Xbox One and enjoy.Further reading: Backwards Compatibility, Microsoft, Tom Clancy, Xbox, Xbox 360, Xbox One
