Ghost Recon Online gets Splinter Cell-themed items

Someone at Ubisoft spilled some Splinter Cell into their Ghost Recon. The publisher has announced the weapons and gear used by Splinter Cell frontman Sam Fisher can now be used to customize characters in free-to-play shooter Ghost Recon Online.

In addition to tossing in six weapons, three armors, and avatars from Ghost Recon's sister franchise, IGN also details a new map called Khyber Stronghold, a fortress in Pakistan that Ubisoft describes as "the most ambitious map we've developed to date." If you choose to run through this map, beware of assassins.

The Splinter Cell update is available now and you can check out a new trailer below.
