Splinter Cell: Blacklist Released Without Torture
When the upcoming 6th installment of the Splinter Cell game series entitled Blacklist was presented at last year's E3 fair, the publisher took a lot of heat because of a feature where the player had the opportunity to torture his enemies. Here, the gamer could turn a knife around in an opponent's wound and therefore decide whether he should live or die. Many observers perceived that as being too much.
As the German game magazine Eurogamer.de reports, the scene was removed from the game completely. With this step, the published distances itself from the feature. Producer Andrew Wilson commented that the final version of the game would not contain torture scenes. They were removed and he hadn't heard from a single person who loved that part either.
Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be released in August in the US and the UK.
