Splinter Cell Blacklist Inauguration Trailer Launch Splinter Cell: Blacklist    Watch this inauguration trailer

You may think that the president would go to extremes to defend the whole country from terrorist attacks. But no, that isn’t always the case. At least, not in the fictional one shown in this Splinter Cell: Blacklist inauguration trailer.

There are tons of troops, big tanks, weapons and explosives reserved. However, the truth is that the president only needs a clandestine unit that can act as the last line of defense. And that team is none other than the one led by Sam Fisher.

Wondering why it’s called the inauguration trailer? Because the president promises the safety of the whole nation during the said event (and the country’s security is the premise behind upcoming Splinter Cell game).

The game’s release may be months away from now, but in the meantime, you can enjoy the latest trailer for Splinter Cell: Blacklist:

Here’s how the story of the game goes: A group of terrorists has sent a threatening ultimatum called “The Blacklist”—an escalating and deadly countdown of terrorist attacks. To maintain national security, the president has assigned Sam Fisher and his team to take down all the terrorists at all costs, and to stop the Blacklist before its countdown reaches zero.

Pre-orders for the game have already commenced. It will be available for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC.

The official release date of Splinter Cell: Blacklist is August 22, 2013.
