Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist is an intense stealth action shooter. This newest entry in the storied franchise introduces a new gameplay mechanic called killing in motion, allowing the player to highlight targets and take them out in quick succession, with a new fluidity while on the run. The game is set in a third-person perspective so the protagonist and the objects around him are visible. As well, there will be voice integration with Xbox 360's Kinect peripheral, which will allow gamers to say things to distract enemies and then attack. And finally, in Blacklist, you can use the Kinect sensor to control the protagonist by yourself instead of using the Xbox 360 Controller. The game's designer Maxime Béland confirmed that the fan favorite "spy vs. mercs" competitive mode from the prior games of the series would be making a return.
