With the video game industry holding its collective breath for the beginning of a new console generation, the game release schedule for August looks pretty sparse. One major game is coming later in the month, however, and Ubisoft isn’t about to let gamers forget it.
The publisher today released the latest new video for Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The game will see Sam Fisher once again return to wetwork in Ubisoft’s last big current-generation release, aside from Rayman Legends.
Aside from the single-player experience of dispatching terrorists, Blacklist will feature the return of the popular “Spies vs. Mercs” multiplayer mode. The mode was teased in a short trailer one month ago. Today’s trailer shows nearly nine full minutes of Spies vs. Mercs gameplay, with Blacklist developers showing off the spy side of the game. A second video, featuring mercenary gameplay, has been promised.
