Not only am I glad to see Splinter Cell return back to its roots, but also seeing Spies vs Mercs make a return! :D

I don't think I've ever been this excited for multiplayer since Bad Company 2 ^^

Same here and more....I don't think I've ever been this excited to play a Splinter Cell game since Chaos Theory came out in 2005 :D

It is one of the more original mp games but dies a death so very quickly. Always the same, I want to be the spy lobby battles and then folk get bored. I liked the co op that came with, I think, the last spy vs mercs

You mean the co-op in Double Agent (360)? The bots were tough as nails in those later challenges.

Th bots were fine on hard settings even though they had a sixth sense most of the time. You are right everyone wants to be on the spies team so I do hope AI is improved and still in the game.


Despite there being legions of hardcore fans for the multiplayer, each iteration Ubisoft tried to make it more accessible to the wider field. I wonder how they will do that this time, or if they simply say screw it and just appease the minority of fans.

"...or if they simply say screw it and just appease the minority of fans."

From a business point of view, that would be counter-productive so it's very unlikely I would say.
