Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer shows Sam's styles of combat

A new trailer for Splinter Cell: Blacklist focuses on Sam Fisher's three different methods for dealing with foes.

As a Ghost, Sam is focused on avoiding enemies and dealing with them non-lethally through gadgets like sleeping gas, thermal goggles and a flying drone. As a Panther, Sam is silent but deadly, using a wicked-looking combat knife and a silenced pistol to execute enemies without being detected. As Assault, Sam abandons all pretense at stealth to rush in guns blazing, but can still use tricks in combat like using his last known position to fool enemies.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist launches for Wii U, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC this August.
