The Saboteur will take place in Paris during the time when it was occupied with the Nazis. The main protagonist of this game is Sean Devlin, an Irish man who is a regular among the racing groups in Paris. Although initially he ignores the presence of the German Army in Paris, Sean swears revenge on the Nazis after his close friends are all killed. During his quest to gain vengeance, Sean Devlin is supported by French Resistance and British Intelligence.

One of the main factors about The Saboteur’s gameplay will be color. When entering areas which are highly occupied by the German forces, you will note that the area is dark and that the visuals have greyish shades. The only exceptions in these areas are the symbols of the swastika on German flags which will be bright red. This type of area is considered to be “low WtF factor”. WtF stands for “Will to Fight” and the player’s main aim will be to increase this factor in a number of areas. Once you complete a number of objectives and weaken the German forces, the area takes back its color and citizens will regain their hope.

The Wtf factor will also affect the gameplay so if the area has low WtF, a large number of German soldiers will be found patrolling the area. In areas with high Wtf factor, the German soldiers will be found in strategically important areas only such as police stations and military bases. Help will also be available when for example Sean gets in a fight with German soldiers and in this case allies in the French Resistance and sometimes even French passersby will act for your support. Mainly the game’s objective is to assassinate high-ranking German officials and gain revenge. Release date of The Saboteur is set to the 8th of December, 2009. Even though expectations are low on this game, the following trailer in high definition confirms this will be an interesting game to look at.
