Ubisoft has released the official box art for the new Splinter Cell: Blacklist. It shows Sam Fisher taking a fighting pose armed with a knife in one hand and a hand-gun in the other, ready to take down an unseen enemy.
Blacklist is a continuation of Conviction’s storyline. Even though Sam Fisher seems quite young, the new title is not a prequel. The age factor had to be considered by Ubisoft to relate to the new actor Eric Johnson, who is providing the new voice for Sam Fisher, as well as motion-capture duties.
Blacklist will arrive worldwide in August on the Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Wii U. Pre-order customers have a choice between the Standard and Collector’s Edition.
