[E3 2012] Splinter Cell: Blacklist Unveiled with Xbox Kinect Voice Control Integration
Prior to Ubisoft's E3 2012 press conference, a sneak peak of the all-new Splinter Cell: Blacklist has been unveiled during Microsoft's, which features Kinect voice integration (we'll talk about it shortly).
The preview showed a very quick and fluid gameplay with an array of abilities and slow-mo action, with settings taking place on the Iran-Iraq border, where the protagonist Sam Fisher is on a mission to capture a terrorist leader (yet again..) to prevent any further attacks from its militant rebels Blacklist.
From the gameplay, besides it being mostly FPS, it is in fact very Assassin's Creed 3 like.
"That's killing in motion, when you've mastered Sam's abilities you can move smoothly through the environment while taking out targets quickly and fluidly," - Ubisoft
We mentioned that Splinter Cell would offer Kinect voice control integration previously. So basically, you will be able to utilise it in game, in which you can try to attract attention and distract enemies by shouting "Hey you!". But, that seems like the only feature presently, or so it seems to me. lol
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will feature a single-player campaign, co-operative, and competitive multiplayer with a certain Spies vs Mercs mode. It is slated for a spring release in 2013. Expect more details at the Ubisoft E3 press conference next.
