What is Spies vs Mercs?This mode has a lot of fans and you can get your hands on at gamescom to focus on. The Spies vs Mercs Blacklist mode is coming side by side with the Classic mode. In this new mode, Spies and Mercs are respectively shared into three classes or presets each with its own features. This multiplayer mode will be based on 4vs4 rounds, in wich the Spies will have to hack terminals while Mercs will try to avoid it. Each team will have to setup different strategies and trying to use within the best tactics all specific capabilities of the Spies and Mercs in order to win.
Spies vs Mercs Blacklist is a serie of rounds in time limit. With the ability to move vertically and silently, Spies will be a threat for the Mercs when they are using their agility versus Mercs heavily armed but limited in their movements. On their side, Mercs’s duty will be to protect terminals, stopping computers hacks, and of course neutralize Spies. More powerfull than the others, ithey do not fear face to face encounters that are usually one-way but are limitated by their movement capabilities.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be available for test during the biggest european video games fair: the Gamescom 2013 in Cologne from 21st to 25th of August. A very nice opportunity in order to test it live, on the booth located in Hall 8.
