The Saboteur is looking sexy in these new images

Electronic Arts has revealed some brand new screenshots and artwork for Pandemic-developed Nazi-punching game The Saboteur. Taking the open-world style of game to Nazi-occupied Paris is an interesting idea, and it looks like Pandemic is going to make good use of the concept.

Players take on the role of Sean Devlin, an Irish racing mechanic who teams up with the French Resistance to track down and exact revenge upon a Nazi officer that has taken everything away from him. As the name of the game implies, you'll be required to sabotage Ze Germanz by derailing trains, blowing up zeppelins, taking out bridges and tanks, and destroying bases.  Sounds quite excellent. 

Hit the jump for a press release, and check out the gallery for a closer look at this sweet sounding game.

Fight, climb, and race your way through this unique world to destroy the lives of those that have taken everything from you. Enter the seedy world of a saboteur living in a stylized 1940s Paris, where the women are sexy, the missions are epic, and the revenge is satisfying.

Tonight, I learned what Flanx and MrNovember sound like in discord, listened to the best idea for a movie ever, and learned a little more about the depths of human depravity. A night well spent. Fuck us all.

So, the artist that they used for Street Fighter 5's story mode(the arcade one) is kinda...not good. Go look up Laura's CGs. Colors are pale, and proportions sometimes end up kinda bonkers. Like, "extreme hourglass figure" level of bonkers.

Finished SOMA today , was able to do a second run without enemies with the "Wuss" mod, found it actually more frightening has you get more time to think about what is really going instead of doing hide-and-seek with the AI (Alien Isolation I miss you)

So Kanye just announced his new game, Only Once. It looks beautiful and personal. It's just a shame that I still have no idea what it is.

I dunno why people are getting so huffy about Windows Store / XbOne Quantum Break crossbuy. It means double the gamerscore for me, and AW and AW:AN are rereleasing on the One so I'll have owned them 3 times over. Great games.

I once considered pitching an idea for a Dtoid Australia podcast, but then I realised it'd probably just be Zyk and I getting drunk on Foster's and complaining about Atlus for half an hour each week while incessantly calling each other cunts.

Why is it impossible to find a raid group in Destiny? Am I just cursed or something? All I want is to get a clan and do a raid.
