A refresher on all of Splinter Cell: Blacklist's assets

This latest Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer reads like the Cliff's Notes to all the previous Blacklist trailers, summarizing the game's various aspects. There's the silly, hyper-organized terrorist attacks on the United Sta...

Massive prepared for The Division by eating leaves

Prior to the reveal of Tom Clancy's The Division at E3, Ubisoft shot a behind-the-scenes video with Massive to document everyone's emotions in the days leading up to the announcement of the game. There's a lot of normal...

Splinter Cell: Blacklist walkthrough gets a little gassy

The latest look at Splinter Cell: Blacklist features Sam and team storming a gas plant that's been taken over by terrorists. The place is set to blow, but after a little hacking Sam's team is able to turn on the fire suppres...

The Division might make its way to PC after all

One of the highlights of E3 this year was Ubisoft's reveal of Tom Clancy's The Division, but it came with a glaring omission. Its release was announced for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, but no mention of PC. That might cha...

The Division has me absolutely giddy right now

Tom Clancy's The Division is to E3 2013 as Watch Dogs was to E3 2012. It's the game at the show that has a ton of buzz around it, as everyone realizes that it's built around a genuinely cool concept. At the same time, everyone wonders if it can possibly live up to the hype.

I really, really hope The Division meets expectations.

And I think it can. The reasoning is that The Division is not only built around an intriguing theory, but seems like it'll have the perfect infrastructure to support it. I was shown a 15 minute hands-off demo, and I came away only wanting more.

Ubisoft depresses us with Tom Clancy's The Division

What was probably the most interesting reveal of Ubisoft's E3 2013 press conference was also among the most depressing. We were led into this new IP with talk of global supply chains, a pandemic spreading on Black Friday, an...

Spies vs Mercs: Which side are you on?

Splinter Cell: Blacklist will see the return of Spies vs. Mercs. If that news didn't get you excited at all then maybe this live-action take by the gang at CorridorDigital will. Their film production and editing keeps getting better with every video, and I'm beyond impressed with their latest efforts.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is full of multiplayer goodness

Confession time ladies and gents: I'm not a big Splinter Cell fan. I didn't much get into the first two, had an inexplicable obsession with Chaos Theory, largely passed on Double Agent, and only dabbled in Conviction.

A disgrace, I know, and a dry spell I'm increasingly tempted to break with Splinter Cell: Blacklist. It's shaping to be the biggest Splinter Cell game yet. We've seen the campaign at length, and not to be outdone, the multiplayer is bringing back Conviction's acclaimed cooperative mode, as well as the return of the fan favorite Spies vs. Mercs.

Suit up agents, we've got a lot to get through.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist Spies vs. Mercs revealed!

I have very fond memories of Splinter Cell's Spies vs. Mercs mode. The gametype debuted in Splinter Cell: Pandora Tomorrow (and was refined in Chaos Theory), and featured two distinctly different types of teams pit against e...

Torture scene no longer in Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Prior to the recent round of hands-on previews, it would be fair to say that Splinter Cell: Blacklist had been suffering from a messaging problem with respect to its perceived focus on action at the expense of stealth and a c...

Six things you should know about Splinter Cell: Blacklist photo
Six things you should know about Splinter Cell: Blacklist
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

Super spy Sam Fisher is back after saving the President in 2010's Conviction. Third Echelon has been dissolved, and in its place is Fourth Echelon. Yes, very original.

Sure, not the most creative name change, but there is indeed a significant shakeup with the the spy organization as Sam is in charge of all operations now. But just because he's in charge doesn't mean he won't still get his boots dirty.

Blacklist brings up a number of changes to the serious, and I found six striking things that all fans should know about from my recent hands-on time.
