‘Splinter Cell: Blacklist’ Trailer Goes ‘Invisible’ [Video]

The latest Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer goes “Invisible.”

Previous trailers for Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist have shown us a more more stylized version of the game that has been discounted before as being “that stealth game.” Our hero Sam Fisher has been given a license to kill and a promise of anonymity as he goes after a terrorist organization known only as “The Engineers.”

Aiding our hero is a new gameplay mechanic that allows the player to target multiple enemies and take them out in a chain of kills. This should certainly make it easier to eliminate the threats against the American way of life before they are carried out. Sam Fisher, now the commander of the Fourth Echelon, is free to do it his way, and in return, President Patricia Caldwell promises to deny his very existence. This is quite the opposite of the Mission: Impossible films, but chances are that Sam Fisher has seen more missions than Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt.

The Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer begins with accolades from gaming site IGN, which gave it “9.2 out of 10.”

We then see what appears to be an empty road with some reinforced fences along the side. It’s dark and it’s raining as Sam Fisher makes his way down it, gun in hand and wearing his famous three-light headgear. Focusing on Sam Fisher, the background switches to a tropical climate in the daytime, with a rural area in the back. There is a shop with words in a foreign alphabet behind him and an air conditioner in the window a little closer behind a rounded table.

The scenery once again switches around Sam Fisher as he is now making his way through a vast rock formation littered with sparse greenery and a fallen log behind him. Then we see him aiming his gun in a rural area at night, possibly in front of an apartment complex.
