Splinter Cell: Conviction Insurgency Pack arrives May 27

First paid DLC for stealth action game gets simultaneous release on PC and 360 with four new Deniable Ops mode maps, asking price of $10.

PC gamers got their hands on Splinter Cell: Conviction two weeks later than their Xbox 360-playing counterparts, but they won't need any extra patience when the game's first downloadable content launches later this month. Ubisoft today announced that the Deniable Ops Insurgency Pack would arrive on both PC and Xbox 360 May 27, with an asking price of 800 Microsoft points ($10).

The extra achievement points in the Insurgency Pack might make those Ops a whole lot less Deniable.

The Insurgency Pack contains new cooperative missions for Archer and Kestrel on four new maps for the game's Deniable Ops co-op modes. Players will be able to take on new missions in the game's four different co-op modes and earn an additional 250 achievement points for their troubles.

Conviction is set two years after Splinter Cell: Double Agent, which saw series hero Sam Fisher become a fugitive from the FBI, NSA, and an alphabet soup of other agencies. In the course of investigating his daughter's death, the now-grizzled Fisher discovered that his former employer, the covert organization Third Echelon, has double-crossed him. Avoiding capture, he travels to Washington, D.C., to uncover the conspiracy that led to his undeserved disgrace.

Like all DLC that has been coming out recently... I'll wait for a review, if one comes out **UPDATE** Was looking into the UBI forums and it sounds like it's not going to be a good buy... here's a quote from someone... "4 maps. 3 sections each. 12 enemy per section. 800 M$ Pts. " Doesn't sound too appealing and it's only for Deniable Ops. I'll hold on to my $10

what happen to the days when they gave out this stuff when the game came out instead of making you pay for every bit.

I'll skip, this crap should have came with the game, just like BTroxell said. What makes me angry is that they'll re-release a version of the game in the future will all the DLC included, and that game will eventually reach $20. Why should they cheat people who pay full price? Why not as an incentive for companies to get people to buy full price offer something like giving out all DLC free if you purchase the game within the first month at full retail price.

Until idiots stop paying this much for overpriced, obviously do-able by launch, garbage, we will still have developers cashing in on it. What we gamers need to do is eliminate the market for this dlc scam. Sadly, that will never happen, as all the no-lifes and spoiled brats will still buy this stuff like its bottled water. Seriously, unless its cheap and gives you something definitively extra, just ignore it and go play a new game.

the Co-op is the only part of the game thats actually close to being a splintercell so this is good news

Definitely going to be worth it I'm sure. The co-op is what makes Conviction worth owning.

Looks pretty good but if they added a new mode with this it would definitely be worth it and hopefully these levels will be big and non-linear like the maps we currently have. That's one big reason I love playing deniable ops and the co-op campaign.

Fix the glitches first (most noticeably the achievements) and THEN release DLC for a reasonable price, please.

I thought Ubisoft was a good publisher, but lately it has become a bloody EA in its greedy period! 4 maps for 5 bucks is a good deal, but same amount for 10$?! Ridiculous.

I love the game. Unfortunately Red Dead Redemption just came out so between that and SSFIV I am pretty tapped. Not to mention I am not paying $10 for DLC.

I might get this game when it comes down to 10-20 dollars. I just have heard a lot of bad things about this game. It is a shame. This could have been a GREAT game. Not some cheap rip off game. I hate to say it but Ubisoft is not that good anymore. If the new Ghost Recon is horrible (Which judging from what I have read about it so far then it will be mediocre at best) then I probably wont buy anymore Ubisoft games. The sad thing is that a lot of devs are not as good as they used to be. Take Infinity Ward for an example.

This is just simply silly. I thought Ubisoft was a great game developer, but they fail to deliver a fully finished game. I mean come on! calling a game co-op without any means of communicating with your teammate? 1 word: ridiculous. asking 10 bucks for just a few maps? I better hope its worth it, if not: why don't they fix their über buggy multiplayer first, since I can join 1 in 25 times or something:S The game could be soo good, if the multiplayer works. Few days ago got a mail from ubi: match making system was up and running, they reported. When I try to answer the 15 questions for a good matchup, I end up with an error after the 15th question, leaving me back at the start. I'm seriously fed up with this, they are ruining the splinter cell franchise...

Maps for 10 bucks. Haha....this nonsense is getting real old fast.

Well, I feel almost sad when I read about conviction nowadays, but I'm final on it - I'll NEVER buy something with such a ridiculous DLC built on.

New DLC policy for me... wait for the review!! Love the game, I just don't trust the DLC quality anymore after L4D2 and MW2

Seems a bit pricey for what it is. Agree with the others, this seems like something that should have been included in the game at release or at least free DLC.

Not buying,this should have been on the game.

Love this game... but this was an obvious "Hold Back" by the Devs to cash in with the DLC. No reason this DLC shouldn't have been in the game from the start. I'm really down on companies pulling this scam. $60 isn't enough to get this included too? Come on!

co-op was a great but could have been better, IMO, if it was more open ended. i like the DLC idea as 4 new maps is great but if these are like the more linear maps of D.O than no thanks. about 2 of these maps were greate since they were more open. if the new maps are in THAT theme than cool, i'll get 'em.

As much as I loved conviction, I was soooo disappointed with the length of it, especially considering how long it took them to make. I felt kinda jipped. I will most definitely be buying red dead redemption in 15 minutes tho! LATER!

I have heard the SP campaign is rather short so i suppose this DLC should have been included in the release.I have stopped buying games brand new due to prices. Much better to be patient and buy used but never from Gmaestop.

@skidrow18 I agree completely. I just won't pay full price for these titles any more, I wait until they are cheaper.

not only dlc is getting more expensive but some games that cost full $60 nowadays are getting lesser content and hours of gameplay....

You know these company's put the DLC on the actually disc and just lock it like BFBC2 did. Man such a shame what these company's are getting away with. I smell a lawsuit!! The only positive thing is that game prices have come down significantly.

Sounds cool but i hope they will also release a DLC or an expansion pack with new costumes and more missions in single player mode or at least new weapons!!!

Those 250 points available for achievements, whats the point? they don't give you anything, now if you could use those towards games, it would be useful

So far i'm enjoying playing the SP mode in conviction, i will have to give the MP modes a try, but it's a shame you see very little added to the SP these days in games, just look at Mirror's edge, like Conviction, had the potential to be really good and quite beefy with it's SP mode, :( shame it couldn't last longer

They could have included this to the game.. The game is short anyway....

You guys who give people a thumbs down for saying they're excited for this need to take a hike. If you have nothing to contribute, don't bother. Let people be happy for this news if they enjoy the game. What's wrong with people nowadays

Sounds like a good deal to me. Conviction's Deniable Ops maps are huge.
