Bullfrog’s classic PC strategy series Syndicate is being reimagined as a first-person shooter by The Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness developer Starbreeze Studios. Set to be published by EA in early 2012 for the 360, PC, and PS3, Syndicate is aiming to present a “unique and brutal sci-fi first-person shooter experience set in a not too distant future, where business is war.” Players will assume the role of Eurocorp prototype agent Miles Kilo in an “epic action adventure full of corruption and revenge.”
Set in 2069, Syndicate takes players into a dark, Machiavellian world run without government oversight with many syndicates vying for total dominance of their local market place. With no one to question their intentions or actions, three mega corporations – Eurocorp, Cayman Global, and Aspari – are at the forefront of this brutal war for control of the pivotal American market. In the world of Syndicate, everything is digitally connected, including the people. Players aren’t limited to the weapons in their hands. Through DART 6 bio-chip technology implanted in their head, players can slow down time and breach the digital world around them to take down their foes using a variety of upgradable hacking mechanics. Syndicate’s blend of fast-paced, futuristic, action shooter settings and story combined with innovative chip breach gameplay instantly immerses players in a unique digital world.
