I have been a Splinter Cell fan for a while now. Ever since the very first game, I loved creeping around to the next corner and taking down a terrorist in the most quite fashion possible. Sam Fisher is the deadliest single person to grace our illustrious imaginations since Nosferatu. Now with an all new sequel that is sure to knock our portal replica geek sock off!
Ubisoft is taking the mark and execute mechanic from Conviction to a whole new level. Not only can you mark and execute targets like before but now Ubisoft has introduced a new mechanic which they are calling “killing in motion”. Killing in motion means exactly how it sounds. Once you mark targets you can move at full speed and start executing them whenever you feel good and ready to do so.
This new Splinter Cell game puts more of a twist on stealth then what we are used to form other Splinter Cell games in the past. It’s a lot more aggressive, in your face, and fast paced this time around. From the looks of it, Ubisoft is not going to give you the time you will want to plan out every little detail of your plan and then carry it out. Although stealth is still the core gameplay feature of this Splinter Cell game it looks as if there will be plenty more action and awesome kills this time around then before.
From the cinematic trailer that was also shown, crap tons of other story info was given as well. Sam is now in charge of the 4E (4th Echelon). After the 3E went completely rouge on trying to take Sam out in the first place the president decided to disband the 3E on the spot. Grimm will also be making a return as the handy dandy eye in the sky. And what is this Blacklist you ask!? Well as it turns out the Blacklist is a list of names that the terrorists are using to blackmail the U.S government into pulling out of the Middle East. Their demands stand as either the U.S pulls out or they will bring the war to the home front. So naturally, it is Sam’s mission to rescue all of the names (or, most of them at least) on the Blacklist before they fall into terrorist hands.
I cannot wait to see more of this game later at E3. Let me know what you guys think in the comments below!
