The The Saboteur wiki last edited by bdhurkett on 05/31/14 06:12AM View full history

Overview

The Saboteur is a third person sandbox game set in the lively streets and rooftops of 1940s Paris, at the height of the Nazi occupation. You play as Sean Devlin: drinker, driver, and womanizer. After seeking revenge for being cheated from a win, Sean finds himself looking for revenge for much more than just a race result. He encounters a rival racer, Kurt Dierker, who happens to also be a proud Nazi. Dierker kills Sean's best friend, leaving revenge a hot topic on Sean's mind.

Gameplay

The sandbox aspect of The Saboteur can be approached in a variety of ways. You can climb up buildings and use stealth to complete objectives, and travel more quietly through the occupied city, or you can go guns blazing into the fight. Regardless of choice, The Saboteur aims to allow players to fight exactly how they want to. Much of the gameplay is based around Sean's attempts to find, and eliminate, Dierker. This means helping the French Resistance, in the hope of finding answers, and also to push the threat of fascism out of the city of Paris.

Fighting against something as powerful as Nazism and the mechanized blitzkrieg is possible in only one way: sabotage. As Devlin, you must sabotage valuable assets to the German war machine to strike a blow in the face of adversity. Sabotaging enemy items is a key part of The Saboteur, and examples of this include planting bombs on railway bridges, bombing fuel depots, and ambushing soldiers, amongst other subversive acts. In a drive to make sabotage a key element of the game, Pandemic added a unique feature called the 'Will to Fight' system. In areas where the Nazis have full control, the game is in black and white. The only relief to this monotone world is the occasional flash of red that signifies something of value to the enemy. For example: the fuel tank on a hostile enemy vehicle would be red. However, as you continue to strike blows against the threat of fascism, the color of that area of the city slowly returns. The idea behind this is that the Nazis sucked all the vibrancy and life from areas under their oppression. When the color in an area returns, it shows the French citizens are more willing to fight. While areas that are colorful are liberated from the fascist regime, this does not remove all enemy presence. It will, however, make the citizens more willing to rise against the invaders. It also includes benefits in the form of French Resistance rebels that are prepared to slow the Nazis to help Sean escape them. Harassment in the liberated locations are much less frequent, and citizens will occasionally get into fist-fights against the German soldiers.

Considering that Sean is an avid car lover, there are many different vehicles in the game that can be stolen and added to Sean's personal collection. Vehicles in the game are not licensed, but they are authentic to the era. In addition to vehicles, there are some different weapons that can be purchased from the Black Market dealers around the city. These dealers can sell you ammo for your weapons, and - if you can afford it - imported weapons, as well. Weapons in the game are reasonably accurate, and include the staples of any WWII game, such as the MP40 and the Kar 98k. The importable weapons include the Thompson and Sten. Weapons and other such goods are purchased through a currency known as 'contraband'. Contraband is earned by causing damage to the Nazi war machine. For example, bombing a sniper tower or putting that freight train in the ocean will earn contraband.

Initially the Nazis you'll encounter are standard fighting soldiers. However, as you anger the aryan invaders, they will send more and more dangerous pursuers after you. These include Zeppelin airships, bombers, the Gestapo, and the fictional Terror Squad. The Zeppelins hover in the air, pelting Sean with extreme firepower. They can be destroyed with anti-aircraft weapons that are frequently mounted on rooftops. Destroying a Zeppelin results in a huge reward of contraband, and a spectacular scene, where it hovers in the air a bit after igniting. Bombers are just that - planes which swoop low over you, and drop bombs. These planes move quickly, but can be taken down as well. The Gestapo have unique vehicles which have a mounted machine gun running along the side. Their cars are also heavier, with more armor, and higher performance. The Terror Squad are fictional super-soldiers who use unique weapons. These weapons also take liberty with history and include an SMG that is more akin to an LMG and an automatic shotgun.

As you play through the game, you will find different ‘ Perks’ to upgrade Sean’s abilities. There are three levels to each perk: Bronze, Silver, and Gold. Unlocking the Bronze perk involves nothing more than a simple task, and the tasks grow harder for better perks. The game frequently challenges players to complete different objectives in order to unlock rewards. For example, by destroying four train bridges, Sean can plant explosives without any suspicion. Some of these perk requests make players complete extremely challenging goals; for example: killing 10 Nazis with explosives in less than 10 seconds or gathering up every civilian, race, and Nazi vehicle in the game.

The Saboteur features stealth options, in addition to the standard run and gun choice. If you kill an enemy soldier in hand to hand combat, you can steal their uniform and assume the identity of a Nazi soldier. Doing this means you can enter restricted areas. However, if you get too close to another Nazi, you can be identified as an impostor. The most difficult of these soldiers to avoid are the Gestapo agents, as they can blow covers extremely quickly.

Story

The game begins with Sean and the rest of his racing team loading their racing car onto a truck, and then traveling across the border from France into the German village of Saarbrucken, to partake in the 1940 Saarbrucken Grand Prix. Once the group arrive, they store the truck away and head to a local hotel. At this hotel, the group meet the favorites to win the race: Team Doppelsieg. Doppelsieg are a German team, and are almost forced to win to prove the 'superiority' of the 'aryan' race. Their driver is Kurt Dierker. Initially Dierker makes a sexual remark at Veronique, who manages Sean's group finances. Sean turns around and punches the rival before a fight with the Doppelsieg workers breaks out.

The fight escalates until the group are outdoors, brawling outside the hotel. This fight is broken when Skylar St. Claire stops to watch. Sean and Jules jump into her car, and proceed to speed off with her in the middle. Skylar seems relaxed about the fact they are driving off in her car, considering the fact that they would have been killed otherwise. After losing their Nazi pursuers, Sean and Jules return to the hotel, where they are informed that Veronique has left the area to return to France, where she will wait on the team to return.

The next day dawns, and it is time to put Dierker in his place. To start with, the race goes in Doppelsieg's favor, and they take an early lead. Sean catches up on them, and passes Dierker on the final corner. As he does so, Dierker cheats by pulling out a Luger pistol and shooting out the tire on Sean's car. The car spins out on the final straight, and Sean winds up coming last overall in the race. Understandably, he is furious, and intends to deal with Dierker. The team leader, Vittore restrains Sean and tells him it is not worthwhile to get mixed up in something that is so large. Sean reluctantly backs down, but Jules convinces him to seek revenge on Dierker. The two follow the Doppelsieg driver into the facility on the outskirts of the village of Saarbrucken. Between the two men, they manage to push the racing car off the cliff into the ocean. However, they are captured and interrogated by Kurt himself.

Dierker, the game's main antagonist.

During this interrogation, Dierker announces to the men that he is able to serve his Reich in more valuable ways than merely driving quickly. He reveals that he is a Nazi, and a member of the SS as well. Initially he believes that Sean is a spy sent by the British. Sean denies this profusely, and then Kurt threatens him. Either he admits to being a spy, or Jules dies. Jules and Sean both deny that either of the men are spies, and Kurt retaliates by firing his entire magazine into Jules, killing him.

After this, you manage to escape from the Doppelsieg facility. Sean happens to be traveling the same route that the Nazis are on their way to invading France, and he manages to speed through all the invaders and reach France. At this stage, the farmhouse that the family reside in is being torched by the Germans. Sean stops them being killed and rescues them from the blaze. However, when he reveals that Jules died, Veronique grows hysterical. Sean then vows to kill Dierker.

France: Unwilling to fight

After this, the game cuts to three months after the ill-fated race. Sean is drinking in a bar, when he is contacted by a man named Luc. Luc is a member of the resistance, and he wants Sean’s assistance in fighting the Nazis. At first Sean treats him with hostility. However, after Luc says that the Nazis are all around him, and they will continue to be unstoppable until people rise against them, Sean reluctantly accepts the offer. Luc directs Sean to follow him out of the building and get in his car. In the car, Luc tells him his plans to bomb a German fuel depot. However, he needs Sean’s expertise and skills with explosive weaponry to succeed. The mission goes ahead, and is a success. Sean is thanked by Luc and is told that he will be in contact again. At this stage, Sean can freely to explore Paris.

Missions in The Saboteur are structured in a manner similar to that of Grand Theft Auto. As Sean completes missions, he will meet more contacts, and these contacts will request you to fulfill objectives for them as well. After completing some of these missions you will eventually move on to story critical missions. After working with the Resistance for some time, the German soldiers attack the warehouse being used as a base of operations. When Sean arrives, he is ambushed and drugged by special agents. However, these agents are not German. They are working for the British, and Skylar is one of their operatives. Initially Sean dislikes her for capturing him, but he begins to be more relaxed about this fact when he realizes with the British there to help, he could inflict major damage to the Third Reich.

After some time, Skylar gets in contact with Sean and instructs him to meet her in the French countryside. She wants him to bomb a freight train from the Germans that will be supplying vital armaments to the Nazi forces. To do this, Sean has to plant explosives at weak points in the structure of the bridge.

Skylar then orders Sean to help destroy a Zeppelin airship before it leaves France. However, when Sean arrives it is already preparing to take off. This means breaking onto the Zeppelin, destroying it, and then escaping it. As the ship detonates, you leap into the ocean below. This ocean happens to be near a German harbor, and the Kriegsmarine investigate.

Cartoon design for the MP60

Before too long, you are forced into hiding in the Paris catacombs. Unfortunately, the leader of the Black Market dealers made an agreement that he would be spared if he sold out your position to the German military. The Germans are hell-bent on killing any resistance, and send in their Terror Squad, which are the elite soldiers of the game. These men are armed with special weapons, such as the Terror Squad MP60. In these catacombs, Luc is trapped under a collapsing piece of rock, where he demands that his fellow rebels kill him, as he feels the Germans would interrogate him, and he would give up information. Sean hesitates to kill him, and Veronique fires a single round from her rifle into Luc’s head. Veronique was Luc’s protégé, and she killed him, despite the fact she was a good friend to him. She feels that his death is a tragedy, but the death of them all would be more of a tragedy. She says Luc would have felt the same way.

After completing the majority of story missions, you are contacted. The 1940 Paris Grand Prix is starting. Dierker will be racing in the event, and Vittore has a plan. However, his plan means that he will be killed: he plans to wire his car with explosives, and rather than overtake Dierker, he aims to detonate himself beside his enemy. Sean tells him that he will enter the race, but that the only person who will be dying is Kurt. This race means having to drive a sports car neatly through the streets of Paris without setting off the bomb. After completing this race, Sean puts the car into its highest gear, aims it directly at Dierker as he celebrates victory, and leaps from it. While the car explodes, and destroys the pride of Team Doppelsieg, it does not kill the target. This event terrifies Kurt, and he begins to lose his mind. The Nazis retaliate and fight hard against the resistance, covering all of Paris in black-and-white once more.

The final mission of the game involves heading to the Eiffel Tower, where Kurt is making his stand. Upon arrival, you discover that Dierker has completely gone insane and turned on his own men, slaughtering them for imaginary insubordination. He stands at the top of the tower, where he executes a helpless Nazi just as Devlin arrives. Dierker soon realizes he used his last bullet to murder his own man, and finds himself helpless before Sean. He asks, ‘Are we to die here, Irishman?’, to which Sean replies ‘No. You will. I won’t,’ before pulling the trigger. Dierker's lifeless body falls from the tower, and as it hits the ground, the symbolic gesture of killing the German commander restores colour to the entire city. Veronique finds Sean as he descends the tower, asking him if it is finally over. However, Sean is aware that while his personal revenge has been fulfilled, the Germans still control most of France and pose a threat to the entire world. Setting the game up for a sequel, he replies

"No. We're just getting started."

Ticket to the Midnight Show included with the game

Electronic Arts reward players who buy their games new with codes to download $10 of DLC for free. In the case of The Saboteur, this DLC is the ‘Midnight Show’. Inside the game box, there is a card insert designed to look like a WWII era ticket. This ticket contains the redeem code for the downloadable content. The Midnight Show grants access to the Belle de Nuit's exclusive basement, adding the ability to play a knife-throwing minigame (in which the player can win the Palomino car) and watch exclusive lapdance animations. Also added are several hiding spots, mostly brothels around the city, and an option to add toplessness to the game.

Box Art and Other Information

The official box art of the game.

The Saboteur was released with the one box art design globally. The design shows Sean Devlin in black and white, with a red Eiffel Tower on a dirty white colored base in the background. The tagline running along the back of the box is “Viva la Vengeance!”.

For an unknown reason, the German release of the game is simply called "Saboteur". The word "the" was dropped from the title, and there are no confirmed reasons as to why this is. Had the game received the same title, it would have been "Der Saboteur".

The title is not the only thing that was changed in the German release. Swastikas and other symbols linking to national socialism have been cut out, as well as two audio excerpts from speeches given by Adolf Hitler. If the box is turned upside down, it is possible to see Sean's fist clenched in a manner similar to that of the 'raised fist' design. This is normally a symbol of resistance, and fits with the game itself, though this is of course a coincidence.
