E312: Splinter Cell: Blacklist officially revealed; Kinect, Spies vs. Mercs confirmed

By on June 4, 2012

It looks like we didn’t have to wait until Ubisoft’s presser to see Splinter Cell: Blacklist after all. The game was just revealed during Microsoft’s press conference.

A single-player demo was shown, featuring a Sam Fisher who still hasn’t aged taking down terrorists at the Iraq-Iran border. The game’s track and kill features have returned, but Kinect voice commands are a series first. We saw our “demoer” shout at an enemy soldier to entice him to walk toward a ledge and, ultimately, his impending death. He then shouted, “Now, Grim!” to signal an airstrike over a crowd of enemies.

Ubisoft then confirmed co-operative play, as well as Spies vs. Mercs multiplayer (!) for the Spring 2013 title.

About Jonathan "butt3r" Davila

Many words can describe Jonathan Davila (aka butt3r). Male is one of them. There are probably others too. He is a superhero blessed with the power to type consecutive words at unflagging speeds, albeit incoherently. He also loves the crap out of video games and basketball, while not being particularly good at either. While he’s written about music for magazines, and performed journalism for a major metropolitan newspaper, nothing brings him the amount of joy that writing about video games does. Unfortunately for you, he does that on this website fairly often.
