Splinter Cell Blacklist: balancing stealth and action

Format:
Ubisoft has revealed more about how the upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Release Date: 17/06/2013

Ubisoft has revealed more about how the upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist will allow players to choose how stealthy - or how gung-ho - they want hero Sam Fisher to be.

"Basically, we've got an economy system that's rewarding you depending on how you play," the game's creative director, Maxime Béland, told VG247. "f you play super well, like ultra-pure ghost, you can make a lot of money and then you can use that money to customize Sam to buy gadgets and customize his op suit."

"We wanted to obviously reach more players," he continued. "And a lot of players find stealth games to be too difficult. They find it frustrating... It's my job as creative director to make a game that's going to touch and reach as many people as possible. So, at the same time, I don't want to go against what's the brand and what are the values and what made Splinter Cell successful. It was an interesting challenge and I think that, for Blacklist, I'm hoping that we've really nailed that perfect balance between stealth and action."

"I think that the best games that I love are the games that allow me to play the way that I feel," he added. "I think Blacklist would be very close to my ideal Splinter Cell game."

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is out on August 23rd for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U and PC.
