Splinter Cell: Blacklist offers 'unmatched flow' in combat

Sam Fisher will be more lethal than ever when he returns next year in Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Release Date: 27/11/2012

Sam Fisher will be more lethal than ever when he returns next year in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, and that's thanks to Kevin Secours. He's the game's combat consultant, and is also the man in the motion capture suit for all of Fisher's movements.

A thirty year martial arts veteran, with black belts in more than six different disciplines, Secours has also trained in law enforcement weapons and tactics, and has provided security training and advice to international airports, hospitals and coast guards. He is a real life Sam Fisher, in other words.

How will this experience translate into gameplay? "Unmatched flow," says Secours in a new developer video diary. "We are going to see a level of fluidity that I believe has not been in games before." Based on Secours' input, Fisher will also wield an Indonesian karambit knife rather than the straight blade of old. It's better for "rending and tearing" apparently. Nice.

As for the moves that Fisher will be inheriting from Secours, we can expect to see elements of everything from karate, jujitsu, kung fu, Russian systema, Muay Thai boxing and more. All will be utilised for the new "killing in motion" gameplay feature, which allows Fisher to take down multiple enemies in sequence.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is due for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC next spring.
