Sam Fisher returns in mobile crossover title Elite Squad


That's all he's getting for now

During yesterday's Ubisoft Forward presentation, fans of the Splinter Cell franchise once again walked away empty-handed. The only reference made to the long-dormant stealth series was the appearance of its protagonist, Sam Fisher, in a new trailer for upcoming mobile title Tom Clancy's Elite Squad.

Revealed during Ubisoft's E3 2019 press conference, Elite Squad is a tactical RPG which utilises a roster of stars pulled from various Ubisoft franchises. Alongside Mr. Fisher, Elite Squad boasts stars such as The Division's Megan, Ghost Recon's Nomad and Weaver, and Rainbow Six Siege's Montagne and Caveira. In the new trailer, some of these trigger-happy maniacs were seen rescuing - of all people - El Sueno, antagonist of Ghost Recon: Wildlands. Sueno is a real bad dude, so Sam better know what he's doing.

Despite it being a full year since Elite Squad's reveal, we are still yet to sink our teeth into some real meat-and-potatoes gameplay footage. We do, however, know that Tom Clancy's Elite Squad will launch on iOS and Android as a free-to-play title on August 27. Players can pre-register to unlock Montagne's M1911 handgun.

While I'm not exactly dizzy with excitement, I'm still digging Virtua Fighter-style Caveira.
