Kinect functionality is featured, allowing you, as Sam, to yell at dudes to distract them (and your family). You can also command troops, to call an airstrike, for example.
Spy vs. Mercs competitive multiplayer returns, and there's a cooperative mode as well. The game is due spring 2013.
Update: Ubisoft has released the first details on Splinter Cell: Blacklist, announcing the sixth console title in the series will hit the Xbox 360, PS3, and PC.
Sam Fisher's return marks the first production from Ubisoft's new Toronto-based team, with support from Ubisoft Montreal and Ubisoft Shanghai.
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."
Update 2: The role of Sam Fisher will no longer be played by Michael Ironside, EW reports. The part will now be played by Eric Johnson, who will be lending both his voice and body to the title as Ubisoft will be employing performance capture technology to implement his acting into the game.
