In Splinter Cell: Blacklist, agents will once again have the option to take on the world of high risk espionage in pairs. Ubisoft has released a brand new cooperative play trailer for the upcoming entry in the much loved Splinter Cell franchise.

They’ve also tossed out a few new screenshots of the game in action, which you can peruse by flipping through the gallery at the base of this post.

The co-op in Blacklist won’t just be a multiplayer addition to the single player campaign. Instead, expect romping through entirely new missions. Here’s the description of cooperative play as per the video’s YouTube description:

Head into the field with backup! Play together as Sam and Briggs, through 14 different maps that all feature missions tied to the main storyline. With 4 different mission styles, you and a friend will enjoy extra hours of gameplay. Suit up!

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is set to hit the PC, Wii U, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on August 20th, 2013. We’ll have more on this game as it comes. For now, what do you think about the way co-op play looks in the trailer above?
