Sorry Splinter Cell fans, this is the closest you’re going to get to playing as Sam Fisher again. 

Ubisoft Forward gifted us with a brand-new trailer for the company’s upcoming Tom Clancy mobile game: Elite Squad. The game includes crossovers between almost every title in Ubisoft’s various Tom Clancy franchises - with 70 characters from Rainbow Six Siege, Ghost Recon, Splinter Cell, The Division and more playable in-game. 

Watch the new trailer below:

While this trailer doesn’t shed light on how the game actually plays, we do have a release date: August 27, 2020. That’s just a month away, and players who pre-register for the game on iOS and Android devices will get Montagne’s Tier 2 weapon upon launch. 

Elite Squad will consist of 5v5 real-time fights on maps based on Ubisoft’s other Tom Clancy games. In addition to multiplayer matches, the game will also feature a story campaign to play through, “where you will have to face a new threat to save the world." Heroes and villains will have to team up together to face that threat - but why?
