Don't expect a new Splinter Cell for a while

The Humble Ubisoft Bundle adds Blood Dragon

I'm with Brett: the lowest tier in the Humble Ubisoft Bundle is worth springing for if you haven't played Call of Juarez: Gunslinger or Grow Home or Rayman Origins. It's one dollar for all three! The bundle's next tier up (around $8) is als...

Rayman Legends, Splinter Cell didn't hit sales targets

I wanted Rayman Legends to sell well. Most of us did, hopefully. It's an already terrific game that looks even better when put up against some of the other stuff Ubisoft releases. During an earnings call, Ubisoft CFO Alain Martinez said "We...

Review: Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Splinter Cell: Conviction was, in my opinion, a superb new direction for the Splinter Cell series, but a fair few fans were unhappy with the changes Ubisoft made. It's hardly surprising then, that Splinter Cell: Blacklist pulls the classic ...

New releases: Purple is back in style

Bloody hell, this week, calm down. A slew of games are clamouring for your attention over the next seven days, some of them really rather good. At the top of the pile, however, is Saints Row IV. I didn't think the series would ever reach t...

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 States that valida...

Splinter Cell: Blacklist to skip offline co-op for Wii U

While Batman: Arkham Origins is passing on multiplayer for Wii U, Splinter Cell: Blacklist is going in the other direction in terms of missing functionality. Ubisoft's Wii U port will not support offline cooperative play, it was r...


Ubisoft announcing a new next-gen title at gamescom

Sure, Ubisoft is skipping their usual gamescom press conference this year, but that doesn't mean they're going to have a light lineup at the show. In fact, Ubisoft will be unveiling a new next-gen game! On top of that, they'll have Assassin...

Cooperative mayhem in Splinter Cell: Blacklist

In a recent hands-on with Splinter Cell: Blacklist, I had a chance to see exactly what our other editors have been excited about regarding both the game's single- and multiplayer components. I spent a little time with a couple of single-pla...


Free Splinter Cell Blacklist with new GeForce GTX cards

My GeForce GTX 580s are still doing okay, but I'd love to upgrade. The expected performance increase is incentive enough, but Nvidia has added more incentive with a newly announced deal that gives purchasers of a a GeForce GTX 660, 660...

How not to die in Splinter Cell's Spies vs. Mercs Classic

Splinter Cell: Blacklist's co-op is where it's at

This trailer showing Splinter Cell: Blacklist's cooperative mode reminds me that, of all the things to get me interested in the game, it sure isn't the single-player campaign. Spies vs. Mercs and co-op, on the other hand, have piqued my in...


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 e...
