Syndicate Revival Confirmed, Slated For Early 2012
Some projects are dubbed "reboots." This one is a "reinvention."
Today, EA and Starbreeze have announced the reinvention of Syndicate, one of EA's recognizable franchises.
Starbreeze is the same talented team that delivered The Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness, and they're currently cranking on a game described as a "unique and brutal sci-fi first-person shooter experience set in a not-too-distant future." Players will assume the role of Miles Kilo, Eurocorp's latest prototype agent, and part of his motivation will involve the time-honored business of revenge. Said Mikael Nermark, Starbreeze Studios CEO:
"We are excited to finally reveal what weâ€™ve been working on the past couple years. 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."
Mega corporations are running rampant in the year 2069 and in this world, everything is digitally connected...including the people. Players won't be limited to weapons; they'll also be able to directly alter their environment via the DART 6 bio-chip technology implant. We'll be able to slow down time and hack various interfaces (sounds a bit like Deus Ex, doesn't it?), and fans of the franchise will recognize many elements.
Syndicate will go into operation in early 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC.
