The lights are on
Sam Fisher won’t be alone in his upcoming adventure. The new trailer for Blacklist shows off the cooperative mission structure for the game, which includes four different mission types across fourteen maps. The trailer also touts the availability of both two-player online and split-screen play.
The new cooperative game modes star Sam Fisher working alongside fellow operative Isaac Briggs, and the progress made in the cooperative missions will feed into each player’s larger game progress. Using the Strategic Mission Interface, Blacklist aims to pull the single player and multiplayer Splinter Call game modes together into a cohesive whole, uniting your progress in any of the game modes under a single profile. By completing cooperative missions, players gain access to new weapons and gadgets that might not otherwise be available.
Splinter Cell Blacklist is hitting PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, and PC on August 20 in North America.

Looks pretty good and 14 maps for co-op at launch sounds like a good deal.
I want this game so bad! I don't know why I've never played this series before. And the inclusion of co-op? Sam Fisher, one day!
I can't wait to play Mercs vs. Spies in this game. I am eagerly awaiting August 20th, and hopefully I can convince a buddy or two to buy it as well.
Cool to see them grasp at every straw to pull in their old fan base.
awesome,i might get this for co-op
Wow. That was awesome!
It's gonna be hard to top Conviction's coop mode though...
Looking good in the hood this game is.
