It seems like Sam Fisher is channeling Batman in this newest trailer for Splinter Cell: Blacklist. We're not really complaining.

The trailer shows Fisher doing what he does best: hiding in the shadows and striking fear into the hearts of his enemies. He says that he's going to operate outside of law and diplomacy, which sounds pretty much like he took a page out of the Dark Knight's book.

Since he's able to operate with no rules, we'll be granted the freedom to take on missions as we choose. Will you go for the stealthy approach and become one with the darkness? Or will you go loud and show your enemies the meaning of "run-and-gun," with bullets flying everywhere?

However you choose to stop the Blacklist, you'll have to wait until the game is released on Aug. 20, 2013 for PC, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U.
