Splinter Cell: Blacklist Highlights Play Styles

By Mark Delaney, 4 years ago
In Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Sam Fisher is back working for the government, sitting at the top of the food chain in the newly formed Fourth Echelon branch of the NSA. In order to stop the Blacklist from being executed, players will have a three-pronged repertoire at their disposal. You can go in stealthily and non-lethal if you're feeling nostalgic, cut the charades and go guns-blazing, or stalk your foes from the shadows but still make sure you silence their heartbeats. Dead men tell no tales.

Each of the three styles have particular abilities, weapons, and gadgets that will assist you, and you can see all of those below in the new trailer.



Some parched, heat-stricken gamers would view Blacklist's release as the first sign that the summer drought is nearing its end. Unlike Sam, you'll find the game shining brightly on store displays starting on August 20th.
