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.

I'm feeling significantly underwhelmed regarding this game "/
This looks pretty fun!
this game just looks better and better
Looks cool. This might be the first (or second) Splinter Cell game I buy.
Nice! I liked playing the co-op mode in conviction, but missed having spies vs mercy. This game is bringing all the goods!
I love me some Splinter Cell! I've been around since the beginning and haven't been disappointed yet, not that I've expected to be. If you haven't played, you definitely should.
Split screen co op!!! A rarity these days. I'm buying it just because of that! Thanks UBI!!!
I wish I can duplicate myself, I cant find anyone skilled enough to play with me
Nice, but honestly... why didn't they just have Briggs become the new main character rather than having Sam play spy in his late 50s or even 60s at this point...
Besides, I missed the dynamic of Archer and Kestrel. Shame they died.
Looks great! Not a gigantic stealth fan but I'll try anything once!
