If you were gaming back in 1993 you may remember a game which caused a bit of contreversay called Syndicate, recently EA confirmed that a new Syndicate game was being developed – now we know which platforms it is coming to, when it will arrive and what the game is all about.
We can confirm that Syndicate is scheduled for release on February 21, 2012, it will be coming to Xbox 360, PS3 and Windows and Starbreeze Studios are the guys who are developing it – this means if you loved The Outforce, Enclave,Knights of the Temple,The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape from Butcher Bay, The Darkness or The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena, you might like Syndicate..
Full game details are currently unknown, you can see the game’s plot here, to sum things up it is set in 2069 and civilians have been planted with chips by mega-corporations known as syndicates – you play as Miles Kilo, Eurocorp’s latest prototype agent, and the journey the game takes you through is said to involve revenge and corruption.
in terms of gameplay it is a first-person shooter, but you have more than just weapons to take out the enemy, throughout the game you upgrade hacking mechanics which will allow you to control the digital world around you, also you can slow down time.
The game is said to be a cross between the first-person shooter elements associated with Crysis and the clean sci-fi world of Mass Effect – we are particularly excited to hear that it will boast 4 player cooperative multiplayer. You can find out a little more over at GameSpy.
