Although Splinter Cell: Blacklist Is Action-Packed, You’ll Still Be Able To Stealth Through, Says Ubisoft

Although Splinter Cell: Blacklist Is Action-Packed, You’ll Still Be Able To Stealth Through, Says Ubisoft

The Splinter Cell franchise has long move away from solely being a stealth game, and the latest outing dubbed Blacklist exemplifies this more than any other. The game’s E3 2012 demo could easily be mistaken for an Uncharted game, but according to Ubisoft Toronto producer Andy Wilson, Blacklist will not abandon the stealth-based gameplay which has made the series such a success.

That’s what he said while speaking to Videogamer in a recent interview, adding that they wanted to focus on giving gamers a choice of play, whether it be stealth or action.

“One of the things that we’re building into the game is choice, choice of the way you play. If you want to take the action approach then you can, but you can stealth through the game as well.

We have multiple paths and ghost paths where you can stealth your way through. We’ve shown a very small snippet of the game and we’re going to be showing a lot more over the coming months where we’ll be demonstrating all of those things and the way in which player choice manifests.”

So the real question is, then, will the stealth moments be far between? They’ll play out traditionally, Wilson promised.

“Stealth is going to operate in the traditional way you would expect it to. I think people will definitely see that when they see more hands-on time,” said Wilson. “We’re not just bright daylight in the Middle-East. We’ve got locations all over the world. There are a tonne of locations that are at night as well, so the traditional night-time gameplay is coming back. It’s all in there.”

    The way they let you choose whatever you want to do looks awesome, It’s starting to feel like Deus Ex: Human Revolution.

    i have never played a splinter cell the run and gun way and i’ve played them all

    i love the new direction the series is going in!
    after all, i mean come on they would get eaten alive in todays market if they stuck to the old ways.
    have you seen the woeful sales of the splinter cell HD collection!?
    its really cool the ruthless efficiency!
    im a bit sceptical about the “play as you want” approach.
    ALLOT of games have done that approach yet every mission is certainly taloured to a certain style.
    the invisable bear mission in ghost recon future soldier for example.
    its impossible to finish that mission stealthfully!
    no really you cant, if you sneak past all your enemies you hit a wall and loose signal till you go back and kill everyone.
    and theres like 30 guards so you cant take everyone out stealth.
    human revolution is another perfect example some of levels let you sneak past enemies, straight out avoid them like going above through a air duct, or you can just cover and shoot.
    but other levels force you to play a certain way, and no im not talking about the boss battles thats another kettle of fish.
    they SAY you can play it stealthfully, but im not so sure.
    i think its going to be exactly like conviction, exactly like future soldier, and exactly like human revolution.
    its going to be a little bit of everything, which really spoils the game!
