Sam's Got Skills In This 'Splinter Cell: Blacklist' 'Abilities' Trailer

In January, I had a chance to preview a couple of levels in Ubisoft's "Splinter Cell: Blacklist," and one of the big selling points was how the stealth action game would accommodate the various play styles of the different type of gamers out there: not only would it remain true to the no-kill, stealth agent player but, if you were so inclined, you could play the game like a shooter without feeling like "Blacklist" was punishing you for it.

With that in mind, Ubisoft has released this new gameplay trailer featuring some of Fourth Echelon leader Sam Fisher's new skills in taking down (or taking out) the enemy for the August 20 release for the Xbox 360, PS3, PC, and Wii U. So the question is, how will you be playing the game?

If you'll recall, "Splinter Cell: Blacklist" puts you in the shoes of the grizzled spy/assassin as he attempts to thwart a mysterious global terrorist organization working from something called "the Blacklist," a number of political and economic targets selected for their ability to destabilize Western governments.
