Sam Fisher Makes Killing-in-Motion Look Glorious in Splinter Cell: Blacklist


Announced during Microsoft’s Xbox 360 E3 presentation but also in development for PC and PS3 for a multi-platform launch in spring 2013, Splinter Cell: Blacklist sees grizzled spec-ops operative Sam Fisher forming and leading Fourth Echelon on a mission to stop a group of rogue nations from unleashing a series of terrorist strikes on known as “The Blacklist.”

Building off of Fisher’s “Mark & Execute” move from Conviction, Sammie boy will now be able to utilize “Killing-in-Motion” to mark and kill multiple targets in long, fluid sequences. On Xbox 360, Kinect will make the game “better” by offering voice commands for things like calling in air strikes or creating distractions.

Below you’ll find the cinematic trailer and the complete gameplay demonstration presented during Microsoft’s E3 briefing.
