During what was one of the most uneventful conferences in what has been a lacklustre E3, Ubisoft announced its latest foray into the world of mobile gaming – Tom Clancy’s Elite Squad. This one throws together a bunch of “iconic” characters from the Clancyverse, including Sam Fisher and that bloke from The Division.
It looks to be a 5v5 tactical shooter of sorts, with a campaign mode and extensive customisation options to boot. While the game itself seems fine, it’s a bit upsetting to once again find my man Sam Fisher being relegated to little more than a cameo character.
In the mix, we’ve got everyone’s favourite buff military dudes and their military weapons from Rainbow Six, The Division, Ghost Recon, and Splinter Cell. Though if the game’s big hook is collecting the whole gang, it’s a bit concerning that I can’t tell most of them apart.
If you opt to pre-register now, you’ll net yourself John Bernthal’s Colonel Cole D. Walker, leader of the Wolves in the upcoming Ghost Recon Breakpoint. Of course the game’s free to play, so you might as well give it a wee go before dolefully condemning Ubisoft for its recent mistreatment of Splinter Cell.
