Cooperative multiplayer is one of the most cherished modes in Splinter Cell. There's nothing quite like teaming up with a friend and taking down enemies one-by-one as you sneak through a mission. It's a good thing then that co-op missions are returning in Splinter Cell Blacklist.
Here's the official synopsis for the co-op missions:
Head into the field with backup! Play together as Sam and Briggs, through 14 different maps that all feature missions tied to the main storyline. With 4 different mission styles, you and a friend will enjoy extra hours of gameplay.
While we may never see a return of Splinter Cell: Co-Op Theater, the co-op mode in Blacklist may inspire some particularly hilarious Let's Plays. We can only hope, right?
Splinter Cell Blacklist will be out on August 20 for Xbox 360, PS3, PC and Wii U.
