Ubisoft has been regularly updating Splinter Cell fans with new information on their upcoming Splinter Cell: Blacklist, such as highlights of the Wii U version of the game, Blacklist’s multiple play styles and the triumphant return of its popular multiplayer mode, Spies vs. Mercs. Today, Ubisoft is revealing Splinter Cell: Blacklist’s co-op mode.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist’s co-op mode allows two players to play as either Sam or Briggs through 14 different maps that feature missions that directly tie into the game’s main campaign. The 14 maps feature 4 different mission styles, although players will need to adapt to multiple play styles in order to survive each mission. Not only will Blacklist players be able to play its co-op mode online, but a local split-screen mode will also be made available.
It seems this time around, Ubisoft is definitely pushing its online offerings in Splinter Cell: Blacklist hard, which is certainly a good thing as it will help keep the replay value of the game high. Including both Spies vs. Mercs and a full co-op mode is something fans of the series have been wanting for a long time.
We caught a glimpse of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Active yesterday which is rumored to have a slower processor than the original Galaxy S4. Today, the device has shown up in a short video that briefly highlights the Galaxy S4 Active.
The ruggedized variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 sports physical buttons, a 1080p HD display and is powered by a Snapdragon S4 Plus CPU, although it contradicts the information made available with its leaked image as it was originally believed to have a quad-core 1.9GHz CPU along with an Adreno 320 GPU. An 8MP rear-facing camera is also mentioned in the brief video.
Even though the video of the Galaxy S4 Active is relatively short, we’re able to see it’s running the latest version of Samsung’s TouchWiz UI and the surroundings seem to match up with yesterday’s leaked image. Hopefully Samsung won’t wait too long to announce the Galaxy S4 Active as we’re sure there are many of you out there who want the Galaxy S4, but would prefer it to be able to keep up with your active life.
