Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell: Blacklist is an action-adventure stealth game published by Ubisoft. It is the sixth installment of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell series and is the direct sequel to Splinter Cell: Conviction.
Blacklist introduces a new gameplay mechanic called Killing in Motion, allowing the player to highlight targets and take them out in quick succession 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 is voice integration with Xbox 360's Kinect peripheral, which allow players to say things to distract enemies and then attack. The player can also use the Kinect sensor to control the protagonist with their body instead of the Xbox 360 controller.
In the Wii U version, the Gamepad controller's touchscreen acts as an interface to access gadgets and other features from the protagonist's arm-mounted computer, or OPSAT. It also incorporates the screen and motion controls to highlight enemies through thermal vision when using the Killing in Motion mechanic.
The game begins with Sam Fisher and his old friend Victor Coste who are working for his PMC called Paladin 9 are about to depart from Andersen AFB in Guam when an unknown enemy force destroys the entire base and Sam and Vic barely escape alive, assisted by hacker specialist Charlie Cole, although Vic is injured after protecting Sam from a grenade. Soon after, a terrorist group naming itself "The Engineers", assume the responsibility for the attack and announce that it was the first of a deadly countdown of escalating attacks on United States assets called "The Blacklist", declaring that they will halt the attacks only after the U.S. government accomplish their demand of calling back all American troops stationed abroad. In response to this new threat, Patricia Caldwell, the President of the United States who had just shut down the corrupt Third Echelon assigns Sam, Charlie, Isaac Briggs and Anna 'Grim' Grmsdttir to a newly created special operations and counter-terrorism unit called "Fourth Echelon" and install Sam as the commander with the task of hunting down The Engineers and stop the Blacklist countdown before it reaches zero.
