Splinter Blacklist Breaks Down Spies Vs. Mercs

By Ashley Woodcock, 5 years ago
Spies Vs. Mercs is an 'old' multiplayer mode that will be making its return to Ubisoft's latest installment in the Splinter Cell series, Splinter Cell: Blacklist. Filled with new features, and hopefully even more fun than it was in https://www.trueachievements.com/Splinter-Cell-Double-A....htm, some fans may not be too familiar with this upcoming game mode. Thankfully, there's a previously covered gameplay trailer to check out to bring those unsure up to speed.

Spies Vs. Mercs will see the quick, agile, sneaky, stealthy, and less armed Spies attempt to avoid and dodge past the heavily armoured, rifle-toting, grenade-tossing, Mercs. The Spies' objective will be to hack terminals located throughout the chosen map. The Mercs must do what they can to defend the terminals from being hacked by being vigilante, alert, and annoying with their flashlight. Check out the video as Zack Cooper, Splinter Cell's Community Developer gives us a brilliant and basic breakdown of the classic version of the game mode with tips and strategies on how to survive, and the advantages each class has over the other:

Splinter Cell: Blacklist comes out on the Xbox 360 on August 20th for the US, August 22nd for Europe and Australia, and on August 23rd for the UK.
