I haven't played a strategy game on a console in a long time due to the fact that there's always some element to the gameplay that is just so much more convoluted than playing it on the PC (usually it boils down to the control options). This game actually looks streamlined well enough that it could be a really fun game to play. I have been looking forward to playing a demo of this for a long time and to see this bit of news brings a bit of happiness to my gaming world.

I've been waiting for months.

Britjadg5661d ago

any idea on game mechanics anyone?

just wondering whether this will be geared toward action or economy as with its predecessors.

gogators5661d ago

but I would expect it would gear toward whatever fraction you choose. It will interesting to seeing how many people can battle against one another online, hopefully more than 4. 6, maybe 8 would be nice.

The game was announced much too early, but also people were hounding Ubisoft about Splinter Cell for years, so they wanted placate them by making the announcement.

It's normal for games to "go dark", no reason to worry about it. In our age of social media and glut of releases everyone has to turn everything into a big deal if they don't get what they want immediately. Just be patient and let them develop the game.

And let's hope they don't turn it into a modern Ubishit game, packed with mundane boring filler, and ways to artificially extend the length of the game. Experience points, skill trees, resource collecting, grinding for equipment upgrades. None of that trash belongs in Splinter Cell.

Fond memories of the OG trilogy. Hope they do right by it.

Ubisoft and remakes seen to be cursed still waiting for Prince of Persia Sands of Time

RaidenBlack7h ago

well ... one thing's positive in that ... they're using the snowdrop engine for this remake, which looks better than Ubisoft's Anvil engine.
Snow drop is a stunning engine have been used in the Division series as well will be powering the upcoming Avatar and Star Wars Outlaws

Waiting 5+ years for a sequel or whatever? Yeah, I’m over it.

There's no reason they can't release smaller projects in between large releases. They're just obsessed with only AAA blockbusters. They forgot that's how a lot the modern giant ips today got started.

RupeeHoarder12h ago(Edited 12h ago)

To a degree….new blockbuster IP’s have always taken a while though. You just don’t feel like it’s as long because you don’t focus on what you don’t know about yet as a gamer. For example before the last of us 1 did anyone really care? No we were focused on Uncharted. Then once that new IP hits you become hyper focused on clock watching for sequels.

neutralgamer199212h ago

Waiting 5-6 years is too long. It should be 2-3 years max. Sequels shouldn’t be taking 5 years

Uncharted 1-3

All in the same generation and we aren’t talking about long time ago. Now developers are just taking too long

There should be a healthy AA market where games are priced at $49.99

Eonjay7m ago

I think Helldivers 2 meets the bill here. First of all, it's a smaller title....plus it's coming in at $40. I think people want more of these kinda titles. I feel like if they pepper these in between the AAA games that will hit a nice balance.

Psychonaut8511h ago

Please do. I’ll take a smaller dense crafted worlds any day of the week over empty bloated bullshit that disrespects my time with lazy checklist crap.

If it replaces dlc I would be all for it
