New Video Shows Off ‘Closer Than Ever’ Mechanic From Splinter Cell Blacklist

Posted on November 13, 2012 AT 11:17am

If you’re a Splinter Cell fan awaiting the release of Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist in the first quarter of next year, then here’s a new video that Ubisoft hops will flame the fires of that anticipation.

According to Splinter Cell community developer Zack Cooper—who serves as our narrator for this video—this quick tease is for the game’s “Closer Than Ever” mechanic. Cooper notes that this “classic mechanic” came from a previous Splinter Cell game, Chaos Theory—not being a follower of the series myself, I’ll have to take his word for that.
