Our beloved Sam Fisher is back, and this time he’s meaner than ever. The reluctant hero has returned in Splinter Cell: Blacklist - the latest installment into the definitive espionage franchise. Toting seven games in eleven years, Splinter Cell has firmly established itself as one of Ubisoft’s most prized first party titles, with fans and press alike being particularly endeared to it. Blacklist recreates the franchises’ initial allure, while taking us to extreme heights that we never knew were possible. It exposes the fallacy of humanity and the measures that we take in order to achieve our goals, and for that reason, we love it.
We're now a mere 11 days away from Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and to commemorate its closeness, more video footage has trickled down from Ubisoft.
Today's video, Blacklist 101, dives deeper into the hardships that Sam and The Fourth Echelon will have to tackle in order to overthrow the "Blacklist"; A series of weekly attacks counting down to the downfall of the United States.
Since the Threat trailer on Friday, we've seen a great deal of activity come out of Ubisoft and external sources concerning Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Including the reveal of some minute details, we've seen a flurry of video content being pushed out on Youtube after Ubisoft invited various Youtube personalities to their Canada-based HQ.
With Splinter Cell: Blacklist only a short few weeks away, gamers around the world have initiated a countdown of their own. To keep interest peaking, Ubisoft have released yet another Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer: Threat.
Today's trailer dives deeper into the Blacklist countdown itself, where we see the various threats that it imposes; including the destruction of multiple US-owned oil refineries. Hosted by a terrorist group known as 'The Engineers', the Blacklist countdown is set to reshape America as we know it, tearing it into an unrecognisable nation that's no longer a global super-power.
On Monday Ubisoft gave us a glimpse of Splinter Cell: Blacklist's Spies vs Mercs game mode, where we viewed some hands-on experience from San Diego Comic-Con. In part one, we witnessed how gameplay will play out when you play as a spy, with standout features such as the cloaking device being particularly impressive.
Todays video gives us insight into the opposite end of the spectrum: The Mercs. Ruthless, unforgiving and organised, the Mercs sole mission is to make sure the Spies are unable to collect all the necessary data for the security terminals.
Earlier this month we discussed how Splinter Cell: Double Agent offered a definitive online experience in Spies vs Mercs, and why we were excited to see it return in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, after it's hiatus during Conviction.
For those unfamiliar with it, Spies vs Mercs pits two teams of players against each other in an exhilarating match-up, where only the victors can enjoy the spoils. To showcase this, Ubisoft have released a pair of new videos today that demonstrate the sort of combat we can look forward to when Blacklist drops on August 20th .
True stealth is somewhat or a rarity in gaming today. While many games flourish the title of being stealth franchises, most of them fail to reward those of us who like to shadow all the way through games. Of course, while many of enjoy being sneaky, a large chunk of stealth fans still enjoy taking out enemies and leaving no witnesses; which many franchises have punished players for by depleting their end-game score.
After a long anticipated wait, Splinter Cell: Blacklist is almost upon us! Locked in for an August 20threlease, Blacklist is poised to dazzle fans around the world by offering a definitive Splinter Cell experience that's reminiscent of past instalment, whilst offering a flurry of new features that your modern day espionage expert needs!
With the next-gen console war hot on our heels, many gamers have forgotten about the mouth watering prospects that the current generation still holds. One game that's on many peoples' radar is the espionage hit, Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
After hiding in the shadows for the past few months, Splinter Cell: Blacklist has finally emerged with all-new footage of the next instalment into the definitive stealth franchise.
Blacklist picks up a while after the events of Conviction, with Sam now head of the newly formed Fourth Echelon, he's tasked with facing an unprecedented threat. A terrorist origination known as The Engineers has initiated Blacklist; a countdown of terror attacks on the U.S.A that will continue unless the government adhere to their demands to withdraw all U.S troops from the countries they occupy.
