In Tom Clancy’s Splinter Cell Blacklist, a group of 12 rogue nations have had enough of the United States’ military presence in their countries. In an effort to rid themselves of the occupation, they mastermind an ultimatum called The Blacklist - a countdown of escalating terrorist attacks on U.S. interests. Given a presidential mandate and the power to act above the law, players take on the role of lethal special operative Sam Fisher.  As leader of the newly formed 4 th Echelon unit, players must hunt down and stop these terrorists before The Blacklist countdown reaches zero. The thrilling storyline along with a wide range of intense, eye-opening covert missions will propel players to locate and take down those responsible for these deadly assaults by any means necessary.
