Considering the footage we've seen of Splinter Cell: Blacklist so far, fans of the more traditional Splinter Cell experience have every right to be just a little bit worried about the game's direction. It's all been outdoors, it's been shooty — in short there has been very little sneaking, very little stealth and very little darkness. Now it seems as though Ubisoft is intent on rectifying this, with the first in a series of new gameplay videos.
"We know you've been hungry for new Splinter Cell: Blacklist gameplay," says Zack Cooper, Splinter Cell's community developer. "So we're going to be giving you plenty, specifically dedicated to you, the classic Splinter Cell fan."
The footage above is pretty skimpy, not much to go on at all. But it is a relief to see the fundamentals of Splinter Cell remain.
