Syndicate Reboot Confirmed, First Screenshots

THE BUZZ: The long rumored Syndicate reboot has been confirmed by an eagle eyed contributor on NeoGAF, and the first screenshots revealed, after a product page for the game appeared on EA’s Origin store. The page has since disappeared from the service.

Starbreeze are turning the real-time tactical franchise into a “unique action shooter” set in the year 2069. The full description reads:

“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. 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.

EGM’s TAKE: With the leak coming so soon before TGS, could we be seeing an official reveal at the show?

What would you like to see added or changed in a reboot of the franchise?
