E3 2012: Splinter Cell Blacklist Announced

By
Posted on June 4, 2012 AT 09:52am


Ubisoft took to the stage at Microsoft’s E3 press conference to reveal Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the long-rumored sixth installment in the popular Tom Clancy stealth franchise.

The five minute demo featured the always grizzled Sam Fisher in an outdoor Middle Eastern setting, utilizing many of the new gameplay innovations we saw in 2010′s Conviction along with a few new gameplay refinements.

In a first for the series, Blacklist will include Kinect support in the form of voice commands. By speaking directly to the system, players will be able to attract enemies, call in support strikes, and more.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be out in spring 2013.

Josh Harmon, Associate Editor
Josh Harmon picked up a controller when he was 3 years old—and he hasn't looked back since. This has made him particularly vulnerable to attacks from behind. He joined EGM as an intern following a brief-but-storied career on a number of small gaming blogs across the Internet. Follow him on Twitter @jorshy. Meet the rest of the crew.
