Electronic Arts and Starbreeze Studios (The Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness) have announced that the beautiful Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Men in Black II) and Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity) will headline the Hollywood cast of Syndicate, a re-imagining of EA’s cult classic from 1993. The stars take on the role of cutthroat executives working for the biggest and most aggressive syndicate, EuroCorp, in a near-future world ruled by three mega-corporations. Syndicate is a unique and brutal sci-fi first person shooter experience that blends fast-paced action and futuristic settings with an innovative gameplay mechanic where players hack into and violently extract the mind-controlling chips embedded in people’s brains.
Dawson plays Lily Drawl, the rising star of EuroCorp. With a shattered and conflicted psyche, Lily is torn between the demands of her corporate masters and the underground resistance to syndicate rule. She knows that this balancing act can only last for so long before she falls, most likely, to her death. Rounding out the cast is Emmy Award-winning actor, Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity, X2, Troy), who plays Jack Denham and Michael Wincott (The Crow) who voices Jules Merit in Syndicate. Both play significant roles at the top of EuroCorp’s organization. Jack is the ruthless power behind the boardroom throne, while Jules is a highly regarded senior agent having led many successful operations against the Aspari corporation.
Syndicate will be available February 21, 2012 in North America and February 24, 2012 in Europe for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
