Spies vs Mercs Returns in Splinter Cell: Blacklist

Last appearing in Double Agent, the multiplayer mode “Spies vs Mercs” will return in Splinter Cell: Blacklist. The mode, as it sounds, pits spies against mercs in a battle where mercs are in first person perspective, while spies are in third person and can move through vents and other tight areas. The mode was teased in quite honestly one of the most worthless videos ever, seen below, that builds up to a two second image flash for thirteen seconds before cutting to a screen that says the first look of the mode will come on May 2.

Still, wasted seventeen seconds or not, great news for fans of the mode.
