Ubisoft has confirmed and shown off Splinter Cell: Blacklist during Microsoft’s E3 press conference. It starts off with a hooded man escorting a Middle-Eastern man to a tent…and naturally, chaos ensues.
The hooded man is none other than Sam Fisher and he makes quick work of his adversaries.
The trailer itself shows off that Blacklist’s gameplay is quicker and more fluid than what Conviction ever was. The Mark and Execute mechanic from the previous game is back but it seems more fluid to use. It also helps that Sam can now vault obstacles and seems more nimble.
Also worth noting is that Fisher seems to have taken a page out of Ubisoft’s other franchise, and by that, I mean Assassin’s Creed. Fisher can now scale the side of hilltops and can even climb to take out enemies.
Splinter Cell: Blackist is set for release on Spring 2013.
