Saboteur 'sent out to die,' Pandemic closure was 'right'

It was incredibly surprising to hear that Pandemic -- a studio hard at work on the The Saboteur -- had been eradicated by Electronic Arts during a wave of layoffs. Despite the surprising turn of events, however, a former Pand...

New screens for The Saboteur do not have any sex in them

If you thought that Pandemic's The Saboteur was all about brothels and boobs, then you're going to be faintly disappointed, because apparently there's more to it than that. While there's plenty of wartime flesh on display, yo...

Confirmed: The Saboteur can destroy planes, smack Nazis

Our brains are now jammed with thoughts of big October games like Uncharted 2 or Borderlands. And it doesn’t look like November will be easier on ye’ old big pile of pink mush with Left 4 Dead 2 and Call of Duty: ...

Watch The Saboteur's Devlin do things in recent vids

There’s more to The Saboteur than Naahzi killing and color restoration. As an open-world action title, the game’s protagonist, Shaun Devlin, has incredible freedom in his environment. He can interact with people, ...

The Saboteur smacks a Nazi, rides a train in new screens

Sean Devlin is something of a bruiser. Lacking a symbiote, and to our knowledge, not carrying some sort of mutagenic virus, the protagonist of the The Saboteur has to handle his business with the might of his fists and his fl...

Leaked vid shows The Saboteurs pre-order blade in action
by Nick Chester

Today, spies slipped me an unreleased promo trailer that shows off The Sabotuer's pre-order item -- a Nazi dagger -- in action. From GameStop.com

Reserve your copy of The Saboteur today and make your enemies die at the blade of their own steel with an exclusive Nazi knife, stolen from your enemies. This in-game weapon gives you the ultimate revenge with a silent and swift execution maneuver.  

The Saboteur hits shelves on December 8. As for why I'd imagine this trailer was never officially released, I don't know how well throat slicing goes over with the ESRB.

In regards to the game itself, it's odd how quiet EA's been when it comes to Pandemic's game. The December 8 release date seems even a bit more odd if you ask me, pushed out there in the no man's land between Thanksgiving and Christmas. But from those who've seen the game in action, I've heard nothing but good things. So consider it officially on my radar; is it on yours?

Pandemic: Everyone should beat The Saboteur for its story

What's worse, a videogame that is so easy it becomes a chore to play, or one that is so cheap, so frustrating, that you never get to see how the narrative plays out? It's a tough call, and one we usually don't have to make if...

GC 09: New The Saboteur trailer is oddly upbeat

For a game that’s supposed to be set in Paris during World War II, where the main character is out for revenge, a trailer using Flogging Molly’s “The Seven Deadly Sins” feels pretty out of place. Thank...

Pandemic tells us about The Saboteur's setting

The Saboteur’s story takes place during World War II. It’s en vogue to call Pandemic Studio’s choice of time period mundane. There’s some merit to it: after all, we have explored this great confrontati...

The Saboteur's main story will take 12-18 hours to complete

I left The Saboteur E3 2009 demonstration impressed by Pandemic Studios’ commitment to making its open-world action title different. There aren’t any mutants or a twisted protagonist. The city isn’t a wastel...

E3 09: New The Saboteur screens show the dark side of Paris

Everything is darker in Paris, or at least when the Nazis are around. Unless you consider the glow of their blood on the walls to be brightening. Pandemic's title has been buzzing about the office recently, what with the trai...

The Saboteur is feeling good, proves it in new trailer

Now this, my friends, is how you do a trailer. It's stylish, it's classy, and it features Nazis being thrown off buildings and covering other Nazis in their blood. What more could you need for a successful video? The only thi...
