Splinter Cell: Blacklist's EMEA special editions include watches, figurines, no planes

Splinter Cell Blacklist's EMEA special editions include watches, figurines, no planes
Right off the bat, we'll tell you that none of the Splinter Cell: Blacklist limited editions announced for Europe, the Middle East, and Africa come with a plane. What you lose in radio-controlled miniature vehicles, you gain in choice, as there are four different special editions.

The 5th Freedom Edition is exclusive to GAME in the UK and GameStop in Ireland, and comes with a Sam Fisher figurine, Splinter Cell Echoes graphic novel, two co-op maps, and some in-game gear, all in a steelbook case (well, except for the in-game items that exist only in a digital state).

The 5th Freedom Silver Edition, exclusive to Uplay, is like the other 5th Freedom, but with a fancier steelbook and a silver Sam Fisher.

The Ultimatum Edition comes with a digital watch, a shorter selection of Splinter Cell Echoes, and a bit less unlockable gear, along with a really silly name. Finally, the Upper Echelon Day 1 Edition comes with a bunch of digital stuff: the maps, some gold goggles, the "legendary Upper Echelon Suit," and more. It's exclusive to GAME in the UK and Xtravision in Ireland.%Gallery-181340%

In Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Blacklist, a group of 12 rogue nations have had enough of the United States' military presence in their countries. In an effort to rid themselves of the occupation, they mastermind an ultimatum called The Blacklist - a countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. interests. Given a presidential mandate and the power to act above the law, players take on the role of lethal special operative Sam Fisher. As leader of the newly formed 4th Echelon unit, players must hunt down and stop these terrorists before The Blacklist countdown reaches zero. The thrilling storyline along with a wide range of intense, eye-opening covert missions will propel players to locate and take down those responsible for these deadly assaults by any means necessary.
