Splinter Cell Blacklist pre-purchase incentives are available now on Steam. Get in before launch and you can bag yourself some day-one DLC.
The Splinter Cell Blacklist Steam hub has the standard edition at £29.99 and the deluxe edition will run you £34.99.
Pre-purchase either and you'll get the Upper Echelon Pack DLC on the house. It includes a bonus co-op mission called Dead Coast, an Upper Echelon Suit which absorbs more firepower damage and offers better blending into the shadows, and finally, Sam gets some gold Sonar Goggles which makes spotting enemies easier.
The deluxe edition has all of the above plus a free copy of Splinter Cell Conviction, another co-op mission called Billionaire’s Yacht, and the VSS Sniper Rifle, M1014 Shotgun, 416 Assault Rifle, F40 Pistol, and Tactical Crossbow weapons.
There's also five new combat suits, the Elite Digital Ghillie Suit, Spy Suit, and Mercenary Suit for Spies vs. Mercs; Upper Echelon Suit and 4E Eclipse Ops Suit for the campaign, and five armour items including Gold Sonar Goggles, Amber Sonar Goggles, Ghost Boots, Armored Boots, and Tactical Gloves.
Phew, that's a lot of stealthy swag. Let us know if you pick the game up. It's out August 20 on PC, PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U in North America, and across Europe from August 23.
