Hot from the Microsoft press conference, Ubisoft announced a new entry into the Splinter Cell series. Blacklist will see Sam (this time with a new voice actor Eric Johnson) shooting and sneaking his way through the Middle East. Because videogame tropes.
But as the Ubisoft folk were quick to point out, this time it's better with Kinect. Using the mic, you can throw your voice in-game to distract guards. Probably the coolest use of Kinect I've ever seen.
Look for this to hit shelves Spring 2013.
