EA’s Rumored Syndicate Reboot Is Real, First Game Details Leak Out

Share And Comment

A few weeks ago we told you that there were rumors that EA was about to dust off one of its old titles, a game called Syndicate. Well now thanks to our friends over at NeoGAF, it seems we have confirmation via a game description and screenshots put up early on EA’s own Origin store (I know companies hate when they are the source of their own leaks). We can’t confirm these details are final but more times than not they hold up. Check out the game’s description and some screenshots below. EA has yet to announce the game but it appears that it may be announced in the next few weeks.

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 – 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 ¡§chip¡¦d¡¨ 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 behavior. 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.

  • Chip Enhanced Gameplay: Slow down time, see through walls, and breach your enemy and everything digital in the world with Dart vision – A neural DART6 chip implant that allows you to interface directly with the Dataverse.
  • 4-Player Online Co-op: Assemble your Syndicate for global domination. A 4-player, online co-op experience like no other, with chip enhanced gameplay and 9 missions re-imagined from the original Syndicate.
  • Visceral FPS Experience: Utilize an upgradable arsenal of futuristic weapons, armor and gear to annihilate your enemies and harvest their chip technology for personal advancement and sinister corporate greed.
  • Sci-Fi Fiction: Immerse yourself in the world of Syndicate 2069, with a world-class sci-fi story experience, written by bestselling author Richard Morgan.

Sounds like another sci-fi action FPS that recently released and is having lots of success doesn’t it..(uh cough) Deus Ex: Human Revolution. Anybody out there play the original back in 1993, if so are you glad they have updated it to an FPS style game or would you have liked to see them just modernize the original gameplay style? Let us know in the comments.
