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.
The Syndicate series is returning, and in more ways than one. For fans of the original, EA and Good Old Games have announced that Bullfrog’s original isometric strategy title, let’s call it Syndicate 1993, will be available on GOG’s download service this Thursday for $5.99. And for those eager to try out the new version, Starbreeze’s Syndicate 2012, a new four-player co-op demo will launch later this month for the 360 and PS3.
Electronic Arts has announced that Starbreeze’s remake of the Bullfrog classic Syndicate will hit store shelves early next year, on February 21. The strategy-turned-first-person shooter is set in 2069 when the world’s corporations, free from pesky governments getting in their way, fight for global domination. Populations are controlled through bio-chips, and you play the role of one such unfortunate soul: Eurocorp’s newest prototype agent, Miles Kilo. Milo’s implant allows him to be an even deadlier soldier for the company, giving him the ability to see through walls, hack enemies and locks, and slow down time.
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.”
