Splinter Cell Blacklist Video Showcases Human Shields, Crossbows, and Ziplines
Ubisoft has a lot to show off in the upcoming Splinter Cell game. Titled Blacklist, players will once again take on the role of highly trained badass and counter-terrorist Sam Fisher as he attempts to foil yet another terrorist attack on the United States of America.
The studio’s latest reveal showcases Sam’s use of ziplines, human shields, and a crossbow. It’s a lot less sneakier than the previous video, released last year, which showcased the game’s stealth and non-lethal takedowns. Check it out below (via VG247):
The game’s cinematic director David Footman talks about the game and how it’s set to be the series’ biggest title yet.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist is slated for release on August 20 on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. The PC version of the game will be released simultaneously, unlike other Ubisoft titles, which saw their PC version delayed by up to a month after the release of their console counterparts.
