Splinter Cell: Blacklist Sneaking In This August

By Mark Delaney, 5 years ago
If you've been following our Splinter Cell: Blacklist coverage, you know by now that Sam "The Ageless Wonder" Fisher has been promoted to commander of the newly formed Fourth Echelon and he answers directly to the President of the United States in an effort to stop international terrorists from executing their "Blacklist" agenda of well-coordinated attacks on the states. In brief, it's just another day at the office for Sam.

If you've been wondering when you could jump back into the fray with Fisher and company, you needn't wonder anymore. The game will hit stores on August 20th as was announced in this new trailer.

Amazon, GameStop, and Best Buy all list the same three pre-order bonuses:
The Dead Coast co-op map
Upper Echelon suit
Gold sonar goggles
With an end of year calendar that looks pretty empty right now in anticipation of the new console releases, it looks like we have our first big title to hit after the summer.
