‘Splinter Cell: Blacklist’ Lands New J. Cole Trailer [Video]
Splinter Cell: Blacklist has landed a new trailer featuring J. Cole.
Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the latest in the series that was once known as “the stealth game,” and deviated from said stealth. This game promises to bring the stealth back while adding new functions like chain kills, where you target multiple enemies and take them all out in a string of attacks. As the next generation consoles come into the spotlight, Ubisoft is doing what they can to generate interest in the series again before the graphics need to start reflecting the next level.
Of course with Assassin’s Creed IV: Black Flag and Watch Dogs set to be launch titles for both of the upcoming consoles, Ubisoft doesn’t really have a problem generating interest in their games.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist has series protagonist Sam Fisher under the President’s direct orders to take out a terrorist organization called “The Engineers,” and in return, she vows to deny his very existence.
The trailer begins with J. Cole‘s song talking about a “public service announcement” from his record company. The rest is a stylish montage of gameplay scenes as the song drives the momentum of the video. A few clips are shown of a man walking down the street with some infrared images of Sam Fisher thrown in for transitions. A background drop plays John F. Kennedy’s Inaugural Address, “My fellow Americans, ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.”
The man walking turns out to be Sam Fisher himself as he undoes a shoulder harness and takes off his sunglasses, replacing them with his classic stealth gear as he prepares for the events of Splinter Cell: Blacklist. We then see some monochrome images of Sam Fisher in action, gun at the ready as J. Cole raps on.
We are then treated to a few action gameplay moments with sniper weapons, exploding windows, and men in riot gear.
The rest of the video is above. What do you think of the new Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer featuring J. Cole?
