Spies vs. Mercs is probably the most beloved multiplayer mode in the entire Splinter Cell franchise. Gamers adore the tension that naturally forms when two opposing factions with opposing playstyles meet head on.

When news came that Spies vs. Mercs was to be a featured game mode in Splinter Cell: Blacklist, the announcement was met with a mix of excitement and trepidation. It's great that Spies vs. Mercs is set to return, but would Ubisoft be able to keep it feeling just as amazing?

A brand new clip from Ubisoft features developers discussing the Spies vs Mercs mode in Blacklist, what makes it special, how it feels to play and how they are trying to make it awesome for older players. If their description stands as true in the final form of the game, we might be on our way to something really special.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is set to launch for the PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Wii U on August 20th, 2013. Are you looking forward to this game?
