This latest trailer for Ubisoft’s Splinter Cell Blacklist is all about “The Fifth Freedom” – the freedom to do whatever it takes to protect the four fundamental freedoms.
As former U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt stated it in his “Four Freedoms” speech, there are four fundamental freedoms that everyone should have as a birthright:
- Freedom of speech and expression
- Freedom of worship
- Freedom from want
- Freedom from fear
The Fifth Freedom is the liberty to do whatever it takes to protect the first four. Sam Fisher is one of the very few to have been granted the Fifth Freedom. From now on, he will have to make his own choices reporting to the President only. But the line between right or wrong is often a fine one…
Splinter Cell Blacklist is due for release in Spring 2013 for Xbox360, PS3 and PC.
