First screen shots of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist from Ubisoft.
First details of the next Splinter Cell game have been released just prior to Ubisoft's E3 2012 press conference.
Media for Ubisoft's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, posted earlier today by Gamekyo, show Sam Fisher fighting in a Middle Eastern setting with handguns, rifles and hand-to-hand with knives. Fisher fights in broad daylight, but still bears his trademark night vision goggles.
A gameplay demo for the game was shown at Microsoft's E3 briefing, showing quick, violent third-person action segments of Fisher infiltrating a militant camp and killing a team of heavily armed soldiers. Blacklist will feature Kinect integration, Ubisoft showed, letting players use their voice to draw the attention of enemies.
The demo also showed Fisher calling in a missile strike and using a camera snake to peer behind doors, with a complex mix of hand-to-hand melee combat and gunplay.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will feature a single-player campaign, cooperative and competitive multiplayer with Spies versus Mercs mode.
The next Splinter Cell will ship spring 2013, Ubisoft confirmed. Ubisoft has a pre-E3 press conference planned later today at 3pm EDT.
