EA has finally lifted the lid off of Starbreeze Studio’s new project and yes, it’s Syndicate.
The title is described as a unique and brutal sci-fi first-person shooter experience set in a 2069, where business is war. Players take on the role of Miles Kilo, Eurocorp’s latest prototype agent, and embark on an action adventure full of corruption and revenge.
“We are excited to finally reveal what we’ve been working on the past couple years,” said Mikael Nermark, CEO of Starbreeze Studios.
“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.”
“Our goal with Syndicate is to provide a challenging action shooter for today’s gamers as well as fans of the original. I’m sure they will enjoy and recognize the legacy that made it such a classic,” EA Partners executive producer Jeff Gamon said.
“Fans of the franchise will recognize many weapons and environments in the game, but in a whole new way. The game also provides a separate and deep four-player co-op mode featuring missions from the original cult classic, which adds another layer of depth to the overall experience.”
A new website, http://www.syndicate.ea.com, has been created, although it doesn’t seem to be live as yet.
Syndicate will release in early 2012 for PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
