Some Saboteur Screens and Sketches
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Pandemic’s open-world action thriller “The Saboteur”, though if the talk around the campfire is to be believed, we’ll be getting a more indepth look at the clandestine tinkerer at this year’s E3.
On a personal mission of retribution against the Nazis who killed his friend, players take on the role of Sean Devlin, a street-wise Irish racing mechanic in 1940’s occupied France. It’s a tale of espionage, high-adventure and intrigue as Sean enacts his revenge by blowing up zeppelins, derailing trains, taking out bridges and generally making life for the annexing Germans as nasty as possible.
Some of the game-play mechanics open to players will be the usual traits of stealth and sneaking commonly associated with the perpetrators of sabotage. There’s also a degree of verticality involved as Sean can traverse the rooftops of Paris in order to get around; when he’s not commandeering any vehicle that comes across his path of course.
Starting off in black and white but with colour emerging more and more as you progress into the game, we think The Saboteur’s unique visual style makes Pandemic’s period sandbox title at least worthy of a closer look.
