SAN FRANCISCO – AUGUST 20, 2013 – Today, Ubisoft® announced that Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell® Backlist™, the latest entry in the venerable Tom Clancy series, is now available on the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, Wii U™ system and Windows PC for $59.99 – rated M for Mature. Taking the role of lethal operative Sam Fisher, players accept a new mandate to hunt down the masterminds behind The Blacklist, a series of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S interests. As the first production from Ubisoft Toronto, the game was developed by an impressive pool of talent with a history of delivering top notch titles for the company’s portfolio of key franchises.
“One of Ubisoft’s most revered series, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist continues the tradition of taking the franchise to greater heights by delivering rich new content, an immersive storyline, and the return of celebrated multiplayer mode, Spies vs. Mercs,” said Tony Key, senior vice president of sales and marketing at Ubisoft. “This is the most ambitious game in the series, and the amount of effort and talent put behind this project shines through to deliver one of the last great experiences of this current console generation.”
Delivering a gripping modern-day storyline, Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist brings back core elements of the franchise and incorporates a new level of technical innovation and design. The game features an immersive single player campaign, distinct co-op missions and the return of the critically-acclaimed Spies vs. Mercs multiplayer mode. Not only does the popular adversarial mode mark its triumphant return with the classic two vs. two action, but also introduces the new Spies vs. Mercs Blacklist version which supports up to eight players in four vs. four competition. All gameplay modes will be supported by a universal economy and customization system that allows players to completely customize their experience to support their play style.
Throughout the game, players will also have the freedom to choose the best way to face any challenge by tapping into Sam’s arsenal of lethal skills and training. Gamers can own the darkness as a Ghost, perfect the predatory skills of a Panther, or take the offensive and be the first to strike in Assault mode.
Regardless of how takedowns are played out, Sam is always fully-equipped with almost limitless resources and front-line technology, including the Strategic Mission Interface that allows players to keep tabs on terrorist attacks in real time. The game also includes an array of new gadgets and classic weaponry, while the “Killing in Motion” gameplay philosophy lets players strike with surgical precision by marking and executing multiple enemies in a single fluid motion.Jump To:
