To quote: Whether you got a chance to check out our Spies vs. Mercs trailer or not, we're bringing some deeper insight (and a live Q&A to follow) into what we're working with in Splinter Cell Blacklist's multiplayer experience.
First off, if you're not familiar with Spies vs. Mercs, I will say one thing: It is an experience like no other. Either you're playing as a Spy in third-person perspective, trying to remain undetected and hack terminals while being quick, agile, and deadly in shadows; or you're the Merc, in first-person perspective, a brute force with unmatched weaponry who's trying to defend the data from the infiltrators.
One of the cool aspects of Spies vs. Mercs in Blacklist is that you will be playing both sides before a game is done. There's a very applicable quote from "The Art of War" (by Sun Tzu) that I like to use: "Know thyself; know thy enemy."
By that, I mean that you can't truly master the Spy until you fully understand how to eliminate one. The same thing goes for playing as (and neutralizing) the Merc. A game of Spies vs. Mercs isn't...
