Splinter Cell Blacklist trailer is full of stealth, explosions, freedom

Splinter Cell's Sam Fisher is due back for another tour of duty in next year's Splinter Cell Blacklist, which sees the hero returning to his high-tech roots as he hunts down global terrorists as they attempt to terrorize people. In a new trailer, we get to see Sam doing what he does best: Stabbing people in the neck who don't answer questions as succinctly as he wants. Take a look, and remember to just say "yes" or "no" if Sam has a knife to your throat.

The trailer looks a lot more stealth-focused than some of the others released which appeared to be thrusting the series in a more action-oriented route. This refocus on hiding in the shadows will undoubtedly make fans of the original games smile, even if it still has glimpses of sliding over trucks and mowing down enemies with machine guns.
Blacklist is due out early next year, so be sure to stick around for more news on Fisher's upcoming adventures as the release approaches.

    I'm sorry but where in the video is there any stealth? Before conviction, it was all about remaining undetected and if you took someone down, lethally or not, you had better make sure there was no one around to find the body or you were a dead man. This just looks like explosions and gunplay which is definitely not what Sam Fisher was about before. I hate this new direction. The stealth genre was small and had less competition in comparison to the action and shooting genres and now its one series down. What am I supposed to play to get my stealth fix?

    The fuck it was. Splinter Cell has always been an action game with stealth elements. You can PLAY it stealth, but you werent dead if you decided to go in guns blazing. Unless you fuckin sucked.

    I'll assume you played on normal or easy then.

    Because the hard difficulty magically turned it into a straight stealth game.

    Get emotional about it champ, but you're completely wrong. Pull out the old xbox and throw the first game in the tray and play it, then come back on here make your bogus claim. If you still think you're right, throw on the second game in for good measure.

    I'll throw my dick in your moms face. She can measure that. How bout it. HOW BOUT THEM APPLES, BIIIIIITCH! Only people with small dicks call other people champs. Thats a fact. Google it. Or use the tweezer test. If you can pick your dick up with a pair of tweezers, you fail. Now, take your old Xbox, take your second game and realize I dont give a flying fucksicle what Inthedistrict thinks about a action/stealth game. Have a nice day.

    If you have to throw your dick in my mothers face in order for her to measure it, you must have a really small day. Good day to you tiny, good day.

    I have a small day? Yeah, sure, we'll go with that. Most of my days are small. I have teeny tiny little days, but HUUUUGE nights. With your mom. Bye bye now.

    You would say that... Look, yall cant be hatin that I am literally a mother fucker. I fuck mothers. Its what I do.

    I'll be honest. The last game was a huge disappointment considering the development time and hype. This game doesn't even star Michael Ironside. I'll kindly take a pass.

    Being a Solid Snake fan I perfer characters to show remorse for their actions. Snake isnt a fan of killing. Agent Walker in the amazing Spec Ops: The Line shows unending regret. Fisher to me has always been an action hero with optional stealth. I enjoy Splinter Cell games but just find Fisher an empty killing void.
