Spiderman 3 Composer Tapped for The Saboteur

Despite Pandemic Studios' untimely demise, their latest WWII action game The Saboteur is still on track for its December release, and it has a few surprises left up its sleeve. Today EA revealed that Golden Globe and Emmy nominated composer Christopher Young worked with Pandemic to create the main theme for The Saboteur. Young's past work includes scoring films like Spiderman 3, Drag Me To Hell, and Swordfish. "The Saboteur's visually striking environments were a major inspiration for me when composing," said Young. "The theme is a combination of The Saboteur's unique blend of artistry and storyline mixed with the confusion, suspense, excitement and social temperament of the time period. It's mysterious and dark but filled with a subtle feeling of hope." The Saboteur will be available December 4 in Europe and December 8 in North America, unless you've already obtained the game through illegal means. Read More

The Saboteur Leaked, Possibly by Pandemic Themselves?

As you all may have heard EA closed down Pandemic Studios, (such a shame) with that a lot of people lost their jobs which is always a sad thing to see. I hope they can pick themselves up and maybe form a new studio without EA. Anyhow, the last game to be released from Pandemic Studios is The Saboteur, and like usual the game has been leaked on to the internet for pirates to steal and play, but could this possibly be a disgruntled Pandemic employee giving one huge middle finger to EA? I wouldn't doubt it, but there isn't any proof pointing towards that. Although pirates can already play the game a little over a week before it is due to be released they are missing out on some DLC that the game has from the get go. It prompts you when you boot up the game to put in the code from the games case. So at least the pirates don't get everything. My thoughts and wishes go out to all of those at Pandemic who lost their jobs during this holiday season, that was just wrong of EA. Read More

Pandemic Announces Mercs Inc. for...?

Ugh, I hate announcements like this. Electronic Arts' Pandemic Studios, whose name lives on, has announced that they are working on a new sequel to the Mercenaries games under the working title "Mercs Inc.", and it will be the first title developed from its new home in Playa Vista. Read More

The Saboteur Gets a Release Date

Even with the dismissal of BioShock 2 to 2010, this holiday is still looking exceptionally fantastic. Pandemic's The Saboteur has been announced to release, worldwide, on December 8th, 2009. Coincidentally, the same day the US declared war against Japan during WWII. The Saboteur is a World War II, third-person shooter set in Nazi occupied France. The presence of the Nazis leaves a trail of colorless life. Players work as Sean Devlin, an Irish race car driver, to push the Nazis out and bring some color back to Paris. Among the usual gamut of self-proclaimed awesomeness, Pandemic says this one will put gamers in an intense story that lets them choose exactly how they want to work through missions. Yeah, we've head that before. Josh Resnick, President of Pandemic, spoke to this effect in a press release today... "The Saboteur is an entirely new take on WWII action gaming. Instead of putting players in the role of a soldier, they'll experience one man's quest for vengeance through an incredible story and an epic range of explosive action. Every street of Paris is alive with options, every block is teeming with action...We're extremely proud of The Saboteur. The art style, intense story, and grand acts of defiance against the Nazis will deliver the one-of-a-kind experience that Pandemic fans have been waiting for." -- Josh Resnick I will say that this one leaked into my top 10 titles from E3. Its looks a style alone make it worth more attention than any other WWII game. Read More
