E3 2012: Ubisoft unveils Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, coming spring 2013

Ubisoft today officially revealed Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, slated for release in spring 2013 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. This is the first project from Ubisoft Toronto, with support from Ubisoft’s Montreal and Shanghai studios. Blacklist is a gripping modern-day special-ops game featuring a new level of technical innovation and quality.

The game tracks a group of rogue nations that have had enough of the United States’ military presence in their countries and The Blacklist provides a countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. assets. You’ll play as Sam Fisher, outfitted with infamous tactical suit and goggles, and players will infiltrate terrorist cells while using ruthless interrogation methods.

“Ubisoft Toronto has taken great care to develop an evolutionary Sam Fisher experience that takes the franchise to dramatic new heights,” said Maxime Beland, creative director at Ubisoft. “With exciting gameplay enhanced by full motion-capture performances, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist offers a highly cinematic experience that will immerse fans and gamers new to the series in an intricate, action-packed adventure.”
