Splinter Cell BlacklistIn a series taking progressively sharper turns at every new addition, Splinter Cell Blacklist brings back a highly-revered multiplayer mode unique to the series. The Spies vs. Mercs mode tasks two teams of two in a beautifully done way of attackers and defenders. Simple, mercs protect the “asking-for-a-hacking” terminals as spies hack the three terminals without being killed. The real genius of the mode is the way the factions’ play styles counter each other. Set up traps for the spies, creep the corners in fear of the mercs’ gunpower, and confuse the ever-living bejesus out of each other with technical doodads.

Splinter Cell Blacklist arrives this August 20th on the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
