Splinter Cell: Blacklist, like SC: Conviction, will feature a full co-op campaign. Ubisoft discusses this two-player mission in a new developer diary.

With Blacklist, Ubisoft wants the co-op to be more integrated into the main story. One of the playable characters is Sam Fisher. Joining him on missions will be Isaac Briggs, a younger member of Fourth Echelon. He seems to be the same character rescued in the cinematic trailer.

The story-based co-op missions will play out over 14 maps. The maps were designed by Ubisoft Shanghai, the studio also responsible for the Wii U version of the game. The missions are laid out in such a way that you need two players in order to succeed. You can't just play them alone with a second player sitting at the beginning.

Blacklist sounds like it's going to be a pretty impressive package. In addition to co-op and the campaign, the game also features Spies Vs. Mercs competitive multiplayer. Hopefully there's some quality to go with all the quantity.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist will hit consoles and the PC this August.
