Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist is a third-person oriented Action-Adventure Stealth game, which represents the seventh installment in the best-selling Splinter Cell series. The game is focused around the return of Sam Fisher, serving as the leader of a new, more clandestine and untainted Echelon unit, and the unit's task to stop a countdown of terrorists events aimed at American assets around the world. Game features include multiplayer and co-op game support, the fluid tag-based "Killing in Motion" game mechanic and the option to complete missions by stealth.
The United States has a military presence in two thirds of the countries around the world. A group of 12 have had enough and initiate a terror ultimatum called the Blacklist - a deadly countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on US interests. Sam Fisher is the leader of the newly formed Fourth Echelon unit: a clandestine unit that answers solely to the President of the United States. Sam and his team must hunt down these terrorists by any means necessary, and stop the Blacklist countdown before it reaches zero.
