Like a morally dubious, neck-bothering Batman, Sam Fisher wants to make you think he is everywhere as part of his tireless campaign to stop ALL OF THE ATTACKS . He's in you house, he's in your office, he's in your pantries, he's in Splinter Cell: Blacklist , Ubisoft's upcoming sneak and snap 'em up that continues to pump out unintentionally hilarious trailers.

As silly as these plot-centric videos are, Conviction worked for me, and Blacklist appears to want to build from that fluid stealth base, reintroducing features from the previous games. We'll find out if it's successful on August 23rd.

He eventually joined full-time as a news writer, before moving to the magazine to review immersive sims, RPGs and Hitman games. Now he leads PC Gamer's UK team, but still sometimes finds the time to write about his ongoing obsessions with Destiny 2, GTA Online and Apex Legends. When he's not levelling up battle passes, he's checking out the latest tactics game or dipping back into Guild Wars 2. He's largely responsible for the whole Tub Geralt thing, but still isn't sorry.
