Building off a very fancy short released a year ago, there's now a very professional web series based on Ubisoft's stealth series Splinter Cell.

It's called Splinter Cell: Extinction, and is made by Companion Pictures. It has nothing to do with Ubisoft whatsoever, as they're very keen to point out, but given how slick the whole thing is Ubisoft probably wishes that wasn't the case.

The first episode, above, shares scenes with the short from last year, but click through and you'll get to further episodes.
