Watch Out For Lethal Operatives Above – ‘Splinter Cell: Blacklist’ Dropping In This August

Ubisoft announces the release date and trailer for Sam Fisher’s latest adventure.

For a man whose spent most of his adult life skulking around in the shadows, battling nefarious forces within and outside of the U.S. government, Sam Fisher sure is spry in these new assets Ubisoft sent over for the latest entry in the “Splinter Cell” series. The hard-to-kill former member of the Third Echelon is now in charge of his own spy shop, the Fourth Echelon in “Splinter Cell: Blacklist,” headed to the PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on August 20th.

In the new game, Fisher and the Fourth Echelon are up against “the Blacklist,” a group of international terrorists who have orchestrated a series of attacks on U.S. assets. Expect paranoid techno-thriller action to follow.
