Splinter Cell Blacklist includes two flavors of fan-favorite multiplayer mode Spies vs Mercs. Classic tries to replicate the slower pace of the original experience. But Blacklist expands the mode significantly, introducing class-based 4v4 battles. While it may sound sacrilegious to longtime fans of the series, we found it quite fun.
What makes the Blacklist variant of Spies vs Mercs so special is the constantly changing strategy you and your team must employ to counter the evolving tactics of your opponent. In a new video, Ubisoft shows off what it's like to play as a Spy in Blacklist mode. (A video showing off the Mercs is forthcoming.)
