Though Ubisoft now seems to be focusing on its next-generation console launch titles Watch Dogs and Assassin’s Creed 4: Black Flag, the publisher still has one last current-generation to follow through with. Splinter Cell: Blacklist will hit stores on August 20, marking the end of both summer and Ubisoft’s AAA offerings for the 7th console generation (unless South Park counts).
A trailer blitz is now underway for Blacklist, with new gameplay videos and teasers hitting the web weekly. This week’s new trailer shows off a bit of the story’s prologue, leading up to a potentially deadly cliffhanger. It seems Sam Fisher will once again have to don his Splinter Cell outfit and goggles, this time to fight terrorists for the America. Nevermind the fact that he’s too old for this shit.
The trailer also has some info about the game’s GameStop-exclusive pre-order content. It’s a couple of suits and weapons; a different goggle color; and a co-op mission. It can all be seen at the end of the trailer:
