Game news Splinter Cell – a free game and a unique challenge for gamers, find out what Ubisoft is preparing!
As part of Splinter Cell’s 20th anniversary, the developers of the original games and the remake gathered for a panel discussion to discuss the legacy and future of the series. We were thus able to understand some interesting information on the reboot of the saga, starting with the very pronounced aspect of the infiltration.
To celebrate this 20th anniversary, Ubisoft has brought together Creative Director Chris Auty, Technical Director Christian Carrière, Lead Designer Andy Schmoll and Associate Director Zavian Porter. The latter devoted a lot of time to their memories by going back to the outlines of the creation of the first Splinter Cell. The original episodes stood out in particular for their remarkable light effects, detailed lighting and a fabulous play of contrasts. Infiltration is at the heart of the Splinter Cell experience and it is legitimate to wonder what sauce the remake will be bitten into. According to those concerned, the philosophy has not changed and players can even try their hand at an extreme challenge: finish the game without executing a single enemy! Complete it in total stealth!
Andy Schmoll points out:
We want to give players a few more opportunities to defuse certain situations. Obviously, stealth is a mainstay of the franchise and is extremely important to us. We wanted to incorporate modern design approaches, while enhancing the minute-by-minute infiltration mechanics that were so special in the original.
What we learn is that the Splinter Cell remake won’t disown its origins. But to meet the expectations of current players, the developers will integrate various new gadgets to diversify the formula. One of the biggest strengths of the game would lie in Sam Fisher’s ability to instinctively react to different situations. We can’t wait to find out and above all to see more!

Whether or not this departure will impact development progression remains to be seen. In the meantime you can discover the first episode of the saga, so you might as well enjoy it!
