At E3 this year fans got a treat from Ubisoft as they revealed the first gameplay footage of Splinter Cell: Blacklist. However, the original seven-minutes have been surpassed by a new release of 11 minutes of stunning stealth gameplay, from the series that redefined the genre.
The video begins the same way as the E3 video: Sam, carrying a dead body infiltrates a terrorist camp before quickly moving at breakneck speed, gunning down and snapping necks and arms like it was going out of style before we witness a brutal interrogation scene early in the demo (being a badass never felt so well). Still, one of the more interesting sequences showcases Sam tagging abilities as he locks onto numerous targets before performing a series of super-fast stealth kills, all set against a stunning game engine, gorgeous lighting and wonderful character and environmental models that bring the series out of the shadows and into the light.
The sneak-peek ends with another grueling interrogation sequence that has a surprise twist, all done using in-game graphics.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist is scheduled for a spring 2013 release for the Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows PC.
