Sam Fisher is Granted the Fifth Freedom in Story-Heavy Splinter Cell: Blacklist Trailer

The next entry in the Splinter Cell franchise aims to be one of Ubisoft’s darkest and most intense yet. With brutal interrogations and an emphasis on morally ambiguous situations, Sam Fisher’s got one rough journey ahead of him.

In the latest trailer for Splinter Cell: Blacklist, Ubisoft gives us a closer look into the game’s story and surrounding characters. The video is titled “Fifth Freedom” and delves into Sam’s willingness to do whatever it takes to protect the liberties of humanity.

Check out the clip for yourself below.

Be sure to let us know what you think of the video in the comments below. Is the new, younger-looking Sam a good choice for the series, or should Ubisoft have stuck with the older, more weathered protagonist?

Splinter Cell: Blacklist is set to launch on both the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 this coming March. For more on the game, including additional looks at gameplay, both action-heavy and stealthy, be sure to keep it locked to PlayStation LifeStyle.
