Syndicate Announced for Real This Time

Electronic Arts has lifted the lid on Syndicate, a reboot of the classic tactics game series in development at Starbreeze Studios. The news comes following a leak from EA’s own Origin store this weekend.

Syndicate is a “unique and brutal sci-fi shooter experience” set in the year 2069. Players are put in the shoes of Miles Kilo, the latest prototype agent from Eurocorp, and embark on an adventure “full of corruption and revenge.” Syndicate is set in a “Machiavellian” world without government oversight, where business is war, and three companies — Eurocom, Cayman Global, and Aspari — fight a “brutal war” for control of the American market.

“We are excited to finally reveal what we’ve been working on the past couple years,” says Mikael Nermark, CEO of Starbreeze Studios. “It’s been a great experience working with EA, and an amazing opportunity for us to use our expertise in the first person shooter and action genres to bring back, and reignite, the signature action/espionage gameplay of Syndicate.”

Everything is digitally connected in the world of Syndicate, including the people. DART 6 bio-chip technology implanted in Miles Kilo’s head allows players to slow down time, breach the digital world, and take down enemies using “a variety of upgradable hacking mechanics.” It promises “fast-paced” action and an overall ‘immersive’ experience.

“Our goal with Syndicate is to provide a challenging action shooter for today’s gamers as well as fans of the original. I’m sure they will enjoy and recognize the legacy that made it such a classic,” says Jeff Gamon, EA Partners Executive Producer. “Fans of the franchise will recognize many weapons and environments in the game, but in a whole new way. The game also provides a separate and deep 4-player co-op mode featuring missions from the original cult classic, which adds another layer of depth to the overall experience.”

Syndicate will release for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC in early 2012.
