Pandemic talks about Saboteur

Saboteur is a stealth-action game developed by Pandemic studios about a dude who decides to join the French Resistance after Nazi's occupy France. Yeah, you heard right. Nazi's. That means another World War II title. Is it bad to get saturated to the point where the word "Nazi" just makes us roll our eyes in annoyance? Anyway, here's an interview with IGN about the game. We'll give you some highlights.

  • About the story: "There are some very specific Nazis that kill Sean's friends and family. Sean goes out of his way to find them and make them pay. He gets tied into the bigger conflict slightly, like the French Resistance and the SOE, and there is this backdrop of this larger global war that's happening. But at the end of the day, we're interested in just telling Sean's story of personal victory and triumph over these Nazis."
  • They make big games, but here's a heads-up on the scale for this one: "We're actually modeling both all of Paris and all the way out to the coast, as well as the German mountains, so there is a large territory that we're including."
  • Citizens will fight alongside you or avoid you, depending on the morale in France against the battle overall.
  • The game will include stealth elements, but will be paced like an action game (we're thinking like the third Prince of Persia from their description). There'll be a few places to hide like rooftops or sewers.

Wow, that was a really boring post. Aren't you guys glad we usually aren't that stiff around here? We're not insulting any other blogs/sites out there, but after re-reading this it occurred to me that writing articles in this fashion just... fail to interest and entertain. Anyway, Saboteur seems like it will both interest and entertain, so we'll keep a look out for it. Hey, weren't saboteurs the little guys in Dune, on the Ordos side of things, that would enter a building and blow it up? How appropriate.

1. They should keep making WW2 games....its like an almost endless supply of stories they can pull from that conflict to makes games that gamers like for combat oriented gaming.
I think COD3 just sucked so lets hope they keep making better stuff for us

2. Haha Saboteurs in Dune were so awesome. Wow its been so long since I've played that game. I think after exams I gotta scrounge it up again. Its such a beautiful game =).

3. At least it sounds like they are taking it in a different direction. Not sure about the whole "Pleasantville" black and white/color thing though, it could be cool if done well. I do find it amusing that although taking place in France, the main character is Irish. Who is Macgyver and John McClane rolled into one.
We'll see, fingers crossed for it.

4. Last I heard there was not a set system for this yet. Is this exclusive or multi platform?

5. Saboteur sounds great. I'm not sure about the night time lighting effects (what's the point when the day time looks normal?), but otherwise it looks like an interesting game covering a huge amount of territory. Looking forward to it.

6. Apparently its a multiplatformer.

Its both on the PS3 and 360 sites at IGN.

7. Stealth action is good. Anyone played Thief 1 and 2? Awesome, crouching in the dark, patiently, then one blow....
