Splinter Cell Blacklist PC Confirmed

The official announcement for Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist has word on plans for a PC edition of the just-announced stealth/action sequel. Here's the E3 trailer and here's the press release:

Today, at the Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Ubisoft® unveiled the development of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, the next blockbuster title in the critically acclaimed Tom Clancy franchise. The game will be available worldwide for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and Windows PC in spring 2013.

As the first production project from Ubisoft Toronto, with support from Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Shanghai, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist delivers a gripping modern-day special-ops storyline with a new level of technical innovation and quality. The game includes voice recognition features on KinectT for Xbox 360®, an arsenal of new gadgets and reinvented classic weapons and a new "Killing-in-Motion" fighting style, which allows players to strike with lethal precision by marking and executing multiple enemies in one fluid motion.

In the game, a group of rogue nations have had enough of the United States' military presence in their countries. In an effort to force the withdrawal of the U.S. forces, they mastermind "The Blacklist," a countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. assets. Given a presidential mandate and the power to act above the law, players take on the role of lethal operative Sam Fisher. Outfitted with Sam's infamous tactical suit and goggles, players will infiltrate terrorist cells while using ruthless interrogation methods to extract crucial information to prevent the next Blacklist attack.

The thrilling storyline and wide range of intense, eye-opening missions will propel players to find those responsible for these deadly assaults by any means necessary. Throughout the game, Sam and Fourth Echelon seek out their missions aboard a new Mobile Command Center housed inside a stealth aircraft. Ready to take off at a moment's notice, Fourth Echelon is equipped with unlimited resources and cutting-edge technology including a Strategic Mission Interface that reports global events in real time.

"Ubisoft Toronto has taken great care to develop an evolutionary Sam Fisher experience that takes the franchise to dramatic new heights," said Maxime Beland, creative director at Ubisoft. "With exciting gameplay enhanced by full motion-capture performances, Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist offers a highly cinematic experience that will immerse fans and gamers new to the series in an intricate, action-packed adventure."

I feel it's fairly important to hold publishers and/or developers accountable for their marketing decisions. Labels are important, as they determine expectations and are thus used to judge a product's success in meeting those expectations. If I order a steak at a restaurant, I expect to get a steak, not a salad. The salad might be pretty tasty but it's not what I ordered. I don't care if the restaurant wanted to try something different or appeal to a larger demographic. I ordered a steak. Same thing applies to videogames. If I buy a Splinter Cell, I'm expecting a stealth game because that's what all the previous games have been. That's why I enjoyed the previous games and that's why the brand has any meaning to me. If you give me a shooter instead, I'm not going to be happy because that's not what I wanted, even if it ends up being a perfectly competent shooter.

That's one of your wackier analogies and I'm going to ignore it, no offense. No real comparison there.

I will say if you ignored all previews and videos and bought the game anyway expecting Chaos Theory again then yeah, you might be pissy, but that was your fault for buying something with no research wasn't it? I mean you already know this game is not really stealth from watching the early media... that didn't take much effort on your part to figure out.

I like good games. What is written on the box is pretty much completely irrelevant to me. I watch gameplay videos on youtube or giantbomb, read a preview or review from a journalist I trust and usually agree with, and then I purchase. I don't really give a shit what the game is called or what a game 10 years ago was like.
