Though a new mission for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell was originally scheduled for release tomorrow, GameSpot has confirmed that it is available a day early and can now be downloaded via the Xbox Live service. Before downloading the level, players first download a small patch for the Xbox Live software, after which they are returned to the Splinter Cell title screen. From there, players may log in with their Xbox Live accounts and proceed to download the new Kola Cell level, which weighs in at just under 2,000 memory blocks and takes approximately two minutes to receive over an average broadband connection. The level is then available from the game's level-select menu and is listed at the very end.
