You saw the return of the night vision goggles, in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and now you can get a little more in-depth with this eight minute developer walkthrough from Ubisoft Toronto courtesy of IGN.
It shows off quite a bit of the general mechanics in the game, from direct combat, to the wacky Bond-esque tools Sam will use, to some fairly diversified stealth gameplay.

As a Splinter Cell fan, I'm cautiously optimsitic!
