One of the most interesting aspects of Splinter Cell: Blacklist is the ability to play missions in any style you choose. Judging from the new video released today, each method is completely viable in the game.
According to the “100 Ways to Play” video, you can tackle the stealth playstyle in many different ways: you can opt for the Panther style and kill every enemy quietly and gracefully or you can go for several kinds of non-lethal takedowns including an electro-shock from a scouting bot, knock-out gas or a simple close combat technique. The running and gunning method works too if you’re too impatient for sneaking.
Another really cool aspect of Blacklist is how each section of the compound features different conditions. For instance, in the outermost section there is only one guard to deal with but in the main hall there are three well-armed guards that can hear what happens to each other. These varying conditions gaives the player a unique challenge depending on their location in an enemy compound. You can view the video below to learn more about gameplay in Splinter Cell: Blacklist.
