In response to the growing use of sophisticated digital
encryption to conceal potential threats to the United States, the
National Security Agency has ushered forth the new dawn of
intelligence-gathering techniques. The top-secret initiative is
dubbed Third Echelon.
Its existence denied by the U.S. government, Third Echelon
deploys a lone field operative. He is sharp, nearly invisible, and
deadly. And he has the right to spy, steal, destroy, and
assassinate to protect American freedoms.
His name is Sam Fisher. He is a Splinter Cell®.
