Splinter Cell: Blacklist (3)

Splinter Cell: Blacklist still doesn’t have Michael Ironside in it. However, it does offer a variety of different playstyles, and a new trailer shows off all the different ways you can play the game (none of which are “Michael Ironside”).

You can play like a Ghost: sneak through areas, avoid detection, use a Trirotor drone to mark and distract enemies, and disable them with non-lethal takedowns. This is kinda contrary to my understanding that “ghosting” a level in a stealth game means not actually hurting anyone.

You can opt to go Assault: run around with a big gun, use human shields, and maybe stick armed grenades to those human shields and hurl them at their buddies.

Or you can play as a Panther: eat raw meat, pee on trees to mark your territory, and… oh. No, my mistake. This is more focused around being stealthy but also killing people with a silenced pistol and a karambit knife. Man, big cats have gone high-tech since the last time I saw them.

The trailer’s below. Splinter Cell: Blacklist is due out 22 August, and will not contain Michael Ironside.
