New Splinter Cell Blacklist Trailer Has Sam Stalking Prey

Ubisoft has released a brand new trailer for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist, previewing some of the abilities players will use as series protagonist, Sam Fisher. The trailer, titled “Stalk, Strike, Silence“, shows off the stealth and deadly precision required to complete missions while also giving a few story details.

Similar to the “Inaguration” trailer released earlier this year, “Stalk, Strike, Silence” blends real-life footage with in-game content. Sam Fisher and his Fourth Echelon team watch a video where a distorted voice claims that America has taken their land and resources and now it is time to take it all back. The footage then switches to Fisher suiting up and preparing for battle along with his trademark night vision goggles.

Stalk is the first core mechanic during Blacklist as players must carefully observe enemies from shadowy corners while mapping out their movements. When the moment is right and the enemy is unaware, Sam can jump out of hiding and strike them with force. Finally, we see the double meaning behind silence. Though outnumbered, Sam is able to disable the lights in the room covering it in darkness. Using the tools at his disposal, Sam is able to quietly dispose of the opposition and silence them for good.

The trailer concludes with a blend of action and stealth gameplay. Various tools like sleeping gas, robotic copters and a wealth of guns ensure that Sam and the player will have everything they need to succeed.

Splinter Cell Blacklist was originally scheduled for release on Aug. 20 just for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. That changed a few days ago when Nintendo confirmed that the game will also see a release on the Wii U.

When Blacklist was announced at last year’s E3, it seemed as if Ubisoft was not going to put the game out on the next gen console. There was plenty of speculation that the game would be available on the Wii U but it has now been officially confirmed. The Wii U version of Blacklist will launch simultaneously with the other platforms along with some features that will take advantage of the GamePad. The Wii U GamePad will allow players to control Sam’s gadgets, switch weapons, target enemies and incorporate the touch screen and motion controls as well.
