With the build-up to EA’s latest action packed FPS Syndicate hotting up, trailers seem to be the easiest sources of details about the game, with several already having been released. Earlier this month we brought you news of a trailer which was weapons orientated, showcasing a number of different ones and explaining what they can do and what to expect from the weaponry throughout the game.
Today we have news of another weapons based video that the publisher has unleashed. This time the clip focuses on one weapon in particular, the DART6. According to the voice over that features in the trailer and introduces viewers to the weapon, every Agent is equipped with a DART6 chip implant and which is a specially designed weaponised version of the chip implant in other humans in the game.
This weaponries version gives Agents an array of abilities which give them an advantage over their enemies including the ability to manipulate the enemy using their own chip implant against them. This allows players to force their enemies to kill themselves or turn against their allies. The DART6 also gives players the ability to slow down time, deal extra damage, highlight their enemies or even cause their enemies weapons to backfire.
Other abilities are also granted depending on the upgrades players obtain along the way and the load out combination they choose. So far the game looks set to be an exciting one and according to CVG, EA claim to have set out to create a challenging shooter and from what we’ve seen so far they seem to have achieved just that. Check out the trailer below for a more detailed explanation of what this futuristic weapons technology is capable of.
