Pandemic Studios announced today that its WWII-based action game The Saboteur will be released on December 8. While many big name games have been pushed back to early 2010, it appears Pandemic Studios plans to release the game in time for the holiday shopping season.
The open-world sandbox game features a unique artistic style reminiscent of classic film noir. The game is said to be inspired by a true story, starring Sean Devlin, an Irish racecar driver trapped behind enemy lines in 1940s Nazi-occupied France. As Sean sabotages Nazi efforts in Paris, the city’s environments begin to fill with color, representing Parisians’ ability to fight back.
We certainly look forward to trying The Saboteur. There’s something so intriguing about being able to scale the city’s many historic landmarks and knocking off some Nazis in the process.
The Saboteur will be released on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC on December 8.
