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.
