The Saboteur Infiltrates DecemberS

Pandemic Studio's espionage thriller The Saboteur has managed to make its way into EA's 2009 holiday lineup, but only just barely.

December is generally a bad month to release video games, but this year could be an exception. With a great many of the big titles we were expecting in the fall being pushed to 2010, The Saboteur's newly-announced December release date shouldn't be much of a problem for the eagerly anticipated title. After all, it does have that lovely colorizing the world game mechanic going for it, as well as its unique tone and setting. Plus, nothing warms you up on a cold winter evening like a visit to a 1940's Paris brothel.

The Saboteur ships worldwide for the Xbox 360, PC, and PlayStation 3 on December 8th. For an early look at the game, stop by EA's San Diego Comic-Con booth this week to put the game through its paces.
