Ubisoft has announced that Splinter Cell: Blacklist will be infiltrating enemy lines across all battlefronts on August 20th. Which is just a fancy way of us saying that it's coming out on August 20th on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
In addition to this announcement, the team has released a brand new trailer for the game which intersperses footage of Sam Fisher suiting up in his trademark gear with clips of previous United States Presidents being sworn in to office on their inauguration day. In Blacklist, Sam Fisher works directly for the current president who has entrusted Fisher and his Fourth Echelon team with the task of stopping a group of terrorists from carrying out their lethal plot. The groups has launched The Blacklist, an attack plan that will see an escalating countdown of terrorist attacks against the United States.
Sam Fisher and the Fourth Echelon must find and stop these terrorists before the countdown reaches zero.
