Trailers are promotions that boost sales by building a positive prejudice and in case of Splinter cell: Blacklist, it has done beyond something like that. It has literally incepted an idea of actually getting hands on this game in the minds of thousands of gamers.
In short, the trailer really rocked E3. The ‘Kill in Motion’ feature and Sam’s attitude of getting rid of anything in his path did conquer hearts at E3.
The theme can be described as a series of events taking place related to ‘Blacklist’. Rogue nations have pooled their resources to pose a threat to the United States.
This threat is explicitly backed up by the blacklist, a file that contains classified intel on high profile targets and assets of the U.S. Obviously, to prevent these knuckleheads from stabbing US hearts, the government calls in Sam Fisher, who demands vast and agile resources to be placed at his disposal.
He designs a new 4th Echelon unit, one with a plane as its headquarters. He has access to the Strategic Mission Interface which is an operating system that helps Sam analyze and determine the best way to implement his action.
This is absolutely a man’s war against forces that are powerful much beyond anything we have seen anywhere yet. One of the most distinguished graphic cum combat feature the game is equipped with is the ‘Kill in Motion’ feature.
Killing in Motion allows Sam to attack with atmost accuracy by tagging and executing multiple enemies in a single fluid flow. ‘Active Sprint’ allows him to move around, climb walls and jump over obstacles such that he can reach his next target while he is on the go.
Now the wait has begun for the game’s launch in 2013.
