‘Splinter Cell: Blacklist’ Director Promises To Satisfy Hardcore Fans’ Expectations

During Microsoft’s E3 2012 Press Conference, there were a few unexpected surprises, and even more known quantities unveiled during the hour-long event. Among those known quantities, but one we’d yet to have officially confirmed, was Splinter Cell: Blacklist. For their next entry in the long-running stealth franchise, Ubisoft was looking to eliminate the memory of the less-than-favorable Splinter Cell: Conviction, while also introducing some faster-paced gameplay — and they proved that with the game’s demo.

However, what Splinter Cell: Blacklist‘s unveiling ended up doing was segmenting the fan base, with a large portion of Sam Fisher fans crying foul of the game’s action-heavy inclinations. By all accounts, this gameplay suggested that Splinter Cell had become a third-person shooter with a few stealth elements thrown in for nostalgia’s sake.

I've gotten to the point where anything they say before a game releases is either hyperbole or a PR talking point.

After being introduced to gameplay-marketing with the likes of Minecraft and DayZ, I no longer care what the devs or pubs have to say about a game. I'd rather just watch it in action and judge for myself.

General Shrooms2062d ago

agreed, but they better deleiver on SpyvMerc.

Exactly. So as long as it's at least as good as Double Agent's SvM, I'll be satisfied. Though I really enjoyed Pandora Tomorrow's multiplayer.

It won't be anywhere near as good as PT, CT or even DA SVM. I have a feeling all human players will be spies versus AI mercs so we can use the "AMAZING, KICK ASS, AWESOME" mark and execute feature.

I'm not satisfied one bit. Looks like ConViction pt.2. Sure, you can drag bodies now....but why?? There is not a single point in doing so( mission will not be failed if a body is found, etc).

Allsystemgamer2062d ago

Maybe...wait the AI in conviction was so stupid chances are if you hid a body in a closet and they opened it and the body fell in them they'd just turn and walk away :/

I jumped ship on Splinter Cell after Double Agent. Now with Ironside gone I see no reason to get back into it. It's a very different game now.

coooooool -_____-

So are we Ps3 players getting this one? Or are we just getting all 3 Ps2 games bundled and sold at full-retail price with the letters HD slapped on the box for sh*ts & giggles?

FarCryLover1822062d ago

Yeah, it's coming to PS3. But the true question is: why do you want this?

xXBlondieVanHarlowXx2062d ago

lol i don't >_< That ship sailed a long time ago. I love a good story. But Ubisoft denied us a piece of it so i guess there's no point in continuing...
