Syndicate Images Leaked! [Updated]
[Update] EA, along with developer Starbreeze Studios, confirmed a reboot to the Syndicate franchise for an early 2012 release on PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
We are excited to finally reveal what we’ve been working on the past couple years,” said CEO of Starbreeze Studios Mikael Nermark
Young PS3Blog.net members: Syndicate is a classic DOS real-time tactical game from Bullfrog Productions. It was created in 1993 by Sean Cooper as the first title in the Syndicate series. An expansion pack, Syndicate: American Revolt, and a sequel, Syndicate Wars, have also been released. The original game and expansion pack were re-released together in 1996 as Syndicate Plus.
We have been hearing rumors of a remake since 2008, when Swedish game developer Starbreeze (Chronicles of Riddick) confirmed that it had abandoned its other project to focus on one game. Well, that’s about to change! A member of NeoGAF posted new info about the game description together with some screenshots, which (according to NeoGAF) will probably be revealed next week.
[spoiler intro=”Syndicate Game description”]Syndicate is the re-imagination of a cult classic franchise from 1993 – a unique action shooter set in a not too distant future, where Business is War.
2069 â€“ No longer governed by politicians, the developed world is divided up into regions controlled by megacorporations known as Syndicates. These Syndicates have revolutionized how the consumer interacts with the digital world. No longer does the consumer require a device to access the world’s data and control their technology, they can do this at the blink of an eye via neural chip implant. Civilians flocked to be “chipped” and enjoy all that their selected Syndicate has to offer; housing, medical, banking, insurance, education, entertainment and jobs. One complete package. One complete lifestyle. In return, the Syndicates gained unprecedented insights, and control, over the individual and their behaviour. With little governmental oversight, business has become war. The Syndicates will stop at nothing for ultimate market dominance. At the front line of this war are the Agents, the Syndicate’s bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers. They can breach anything in the wired world including their enemies, their weapons and the environment that surrounds them, making them the most efficient and deadly technological weapons in the world.
Take on the role of Miles Kilo, Eurocorp’s latest prototype agent, and embark on a brutal action adventure of corruption and revenge.
