The newest Splinter Cell: Blacklist trailer shows Sam Fisher doing what he does best: ridding the world of bad guys.

Dubbed the Inauguration trailer, the new video starts with a montage of presidents being sworn into office before we get to the good stuff. After pledging to stop not just one but all of the Blacklist attacks being carried out on the U.S., Fisher engages in all sorts of rappelling, neck snapping, and explosion dodging. I'm still not sure what the footage of our former presidents has to do with anything, but it looks like Blacklist ups the series' action to new heights.

Splinter Cell: Blacklist will release on August 20 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC. To see Fisher's sneakier side, check out this developer diary.
