Talk to the Enemy in Splinter Cell Blacklist
PC, Xbox 360, PS3
Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft unveiled Splinter Cell Blacklist, the next title in the Tom Clancy franchise. The game will be available worldwide for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC in early 2013.
As the first production project from Ubisoft Toronto, with support from Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Shanghai, Blacklist delivers a modern-day special-ops storyline with a new level of technical innovation and quality. The game includes voice recognition features on Kinect for Xbox 360, an arsenal of new gadgets and reinvented classic weapons and a new “Killing-in-Motion” fighting style, which allows players to strike with lethal precision by marking and executing multiple enemies in one fluid motion.
The Blacklist story involves a group of rogue nations that have had enough of the United States’ military presence in their countries. In an effort to force the withdrawal of the U.S. forces, they mastermind “The Blacklist,” a countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. assets. Given a presidential mandate and the power to act above the law, players take on the role of Sam Fisher. Outfitted with Sam’s infamous tactical suit and goggles, players will infiltrate terrorist cells while using ruthless interrogation methods to extract crucial information to prevent the next Blacklist attack.
The storyline and wide range of missions will propel players to find those responsible for these deadly assaults by any means necessary. Throughout the game, Sam and Fourth Echelon seek out their missions aboard a new Mobile Command Center housed inside a stealth aircraft. Ready to take off at a moment’s notice, Fourth Echelon is equipped with unlimited resources and cutting-edge technology including a Strategic Mission Interface that reports global events in real time.
“Ubisoft Toronto has taken great care to develop an evolutionary Sam Fisher experience that takes the franchise to dramatic new heights,” said Maxime Beland, creative director at Ubisoft. “With exciting gameplay enhanced by full motion-capture performances, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist offers a highly cinematic experience that will immerse fans and gamers new to the series in an intricate, action-packed adventure.”
Sliced Comments: Can't wait for this new addition to the Splinter Cell franchise. Hoping for a bit more darkness to stealth around in, but the 'Killing-in-motion' fluid gameplay looks amazing! Let's hope it doesn't make the game too easy. Also, with Kinect for Xbox 360 we're going to have a lot of fun whistling and calling to the enemies to get their attention.
