'Splinter Cell: Blacklist' drops main menu for playable hub area

Splinter Cell Blacklist won't feature a main menu, it has been revealed.

The stealth-action sequel will instead bridge together its missions and modes with a hub area that's explored by the player using Sam Fisher.

Missions will be selected by talking to fellow agents, or from a map screen that also displays the status of online friends for co-op opportunities.

Each of the four agents will give Fisher different types of co-op missions. Grimm offers Ghost playstyle objectives, for example. Fisher's relationship with each of the agents will change as the story evolves.

The hub area ties into the story of Forth Echelon being a covert unit that's situated in a plane, travelling the globe and chasing leads in multiple countries.

The idea to drop a menu came from creative director Maxime Beland's frustrations with how multiplayer modes often feel disconnected from the campaign. (PC, PS3, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Wii U, Xbox 360)

This has been known for a while. Max talked about it after last year's E3.

this is always a nice touch in games. Wish more Devs would do things like this. Just the 3D menu in Conviction was cool

That was a great in-game video.

Great to see the series back like I remembered it to be and more this time around.

Think that is a very very good feature, looking at the video, it's quite seamless.
