Yep, the special edition version of Splinter Cell: Blacklist comes with an R/C plane. Kind of like the RC-XD that came with the Black Ops Special Edition, but more...aerial.
Priced at $169.99 and set to release with the game on August 20, 2013, it'll come with the aforementioned Paladin R/C Plane, the Splinter Cell Echoes novel, a poster, two co-op maps, two in-game items -- oh, and a copy of Blacklist.
The official description of the Paladin from Ubisoft is, "a custom three-channel, dual-motor plane modeled after the in-game mobile headquarters." Sweet!
Despite my hesitations with the direction the series may be going, I'm totally ready for the next Splinter Cell. Are you?
