Those who buy Nvidia's current GPUs will get a free copy of Blacklist
The game, based heavily on the world created by Tom Clancy, writer of books based on espionage stories, puts you into the shoes of NSA (National Security Agency) operative Sam Fisher. The next game in the series, titled Splinter Cell: Blacklist, was announced during last year’s E3. Ubisoft had released some information about the story, along with a trailer that showed off some gameplay in Blacklist. The game seems to be taking on a more action route, rather than the silent stealth route of the earlier games.
In Splinter Cell Blacklist, Sam Fisher returns as the leader of 4th Echelon, an elite counter-terrorism unit armed with a new mandate to hunt down the masterminds behind The Blacklist, a series of deadly escalating attacks on US interests. To stop the Blacklist countdown, gamers will choose the best way to face any challenge by tapping into Sam’s arsenal of lethal skills and training.
Splinter Cell Blacklist features a single player story, co-op missions and the return of the fan-favourite Spies Vs. Mercs multiplayer mode—all supported by a universal economy and customisation system that allows players to completely customise their game experience. Ubisoft claims that Blacklist is set to be the biggest game in the franchise.
Splinter Cell Blacklist will be hitting stores on August 23 and will be available on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
