Starbreeze’s Syndicate, a reimagining of Bullfrog’s original strategy release from the 1990s, has hit store shelves today for the PC, 360, and PS3. The game might have shifted from an isometric strategy to a first-person shooter, but the dystopian future ran by mega corporations who hire bio-chip-enhanced agents to carry out their dirty deeds remains the same. As one of these agents, players will be able to manipulate time, see through walls, and hack their way to money and power.
Syndicate features a single-player campaign as well as four-player co-op multiplayer. As members of the new Wulf Western syndicate, squads of agents will need to fight through nine different missions to dominate their rivals by stealing blueprints and ripping bio-chips from the heads of syndicate bosses.
Set in 2069, Syndicate takes players into a dark, Machiavellian world where corporations are vying for market dominance. With no government to question their intentions or actions, mega corporations are at the forefront of this war. Stepping into the mind of Miles Kilo, Eurocorp’s latest prototype agent, gamers embark on a brutal action adventure full of corruption and revenge. Syndicate features the talents of celebrated actors Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Men in Black II) and Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity), who take on the roles of cutthroat executives working for the biggest and most aggressive syndicate. The engaging storyline was penned by award-winning sci-fi writer Richard Morgan (Altered Carbon, Thirteen) who has brought these deeply conflicted characters to life in an unforgiving world where violence, corruption, technology and betrayal have become the everyday tools of business.
