Splinter Cell: Blacklist Trailer: Sam Fisher’s Got Style
Sam Fisher is definitely one deadly dude, but in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, you’ll be able to pick just what kind of flavor of deadly he should be.
In the new trailer, the Ghost, Panther and Assault styles are explored. Using these combat styles, Fisher will be able to employ different tactics for different situations.
This means you can choose whether to be sneaky and non-lethal, sneaky but deadly or just go full-on loud and let your guns blaze. If you’re a fan of all three, you can mix and match so that your playstyle is dynamic and fluid, remaining undetected one minute and then rushing out the next.
The Ghost style is for remaining undetected and neutralizing enemies non-lethally. This means putting enemies to sleep, choking them out or even stunning them. You’ll be swift, silent and no one will know you were ever there.
The Panther style is for remaining undetected, but with lethal takedowns. You can sneak up to someone and stab them silently, use a silenced pistol to executed marked targets and break their necks when they least expect it. The Panther style of play is quiet, but very brutal.
Finally, the Assault style is for players who want to eschew any semblance of stealth in favor of going loud. You’ll be able to trick foes by leading them to your last known position only to strike at them from behind, take on human shields and even use them as weapons against other enemies.
Watch the video above and find out which style is right for you. Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be released on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC and Wii U on Aug. 20, 2013.
