Splinter Cell: Blacklist is under plenty of scrutiny from hardcore fans of the series. The worry that Sam Fisher has lost his ‘silent ways’. You’ll be happy to know then that the new trailer is solid stealth action, it’s after the break.

Age is not slowing him down. Sam Fisher’s latest Blacklist gameplay reveal shows the Splinter Cell operative in some of his finest action moments yet.

Ubisoft creative director Maxime Beland has said the team behind Splinter Cell: Blacklist is pushing for moral ambiguity with the latest Sam Fisher game.

By emotional state, we mean pissed off and out for revenge, and so does Victor Coste – the private military contractor who worked with Sam Fisher in the past.
Telling men who have him sitting in a dark room, with a very bright light pointed in his face, that he “would not want to be” them right now, he definitely makes it sound like Sam’s off his rocker.
Splinter Cell: Conviction was delayed into April, so that Ubisoft could give it a bit of spit and polish. Watch the video below, courtesy of Joystiq.

The second Splinter Cell Conviction dev diary’s after the break, containing new gameplay footage, plot details and a focus on Sam’s newly “enraged” combat prowess.
“The biggest difference between the previous Splinter Cells and Conviction lies in the character’s combat speed and brutality,” said Gilles Monteil, animation director.
“We had to find a martial art that fits the character and the situations he would find himself in.”
The team picked Israeli combat system Krav Maga. Think Bourne on killer crack.
“Krav Maga’s not a big flashy martial art. He’s not going to be doing spinning back kicks, or anything like that,” added Steve Masters, lead game designer.
“What he is doing is being extremely efficient in taking people down in a fast, effective manner.”
Check it out. It really does look wicked. Conviction releases for PC and 360 on February 26.

According to Ubisoft creative director Max Beland, who was demoing Splinter Cell: Conviction at PAX, Sam Fisher’s night vision goggles are back.
A video shown on site revealed the goggles in use, allowing Sam to see through walls in black and white, with enemies glowing brightly.
That’s about it really. Nothing further to report on it. Still, it’s something you did not know before.

Ubisoft’s sent out four new screens of Splinter Cell: Conviction and boy, do they look hawt.
They’re after the jump.
The game was due for a release this year but, like every game this year, it’s now being released in Q1 2010 for the Xbox 360.

Sam Fisher may be hard as nails, but it sounds as though Splinter Cell: Conviction may be his last foray into the world of espionage. One more game and he’ll be in a wheelchair.
“He’s pretty old, actually,” one of the game’s developers told us, talking at E3, adding that Fisher is in his “50s” in Conviction.
Sam apparently doesn’t mind facing the rigours of middle-age, however, and was seen in fine form in LA earlier this month, torturing and killing with gay abandon.
Conviction’s out for PC and 360 towards the end of the year.

Splinter Cell: Conviction’s producer, Alexandre Parizeau, has assured Joystiq that the game will have multiplayer, DLC, and both are being developed by Ubisoft Montreal.
“We’re going to have a multiplayer, but I can’t talk about it anymore than that,” he told the site. “It’s part of the things we’re going to announce during the summer.
“DLC, it’s always part of our strategies,” he continued. “We always want to keep the content fresh, so as soon as the team is done with the game we can move on and continue expanding the experience.
“It’s going to be part of our plans, for sure.”
The game is out this fall for PC and Xbox 360.

The official website for Splinter Cell: Conviction is offering up a big tease of sorts.
The site reads: “Site currently under investigation” and “If you have any information on Sam Fisher, please report it here.”
Said link takes you to the game forums, and not much else is known. Possibly a reveal of sorts soon.
Whatever it is, it’s got the forums buzzing.
