Business is War in the Revival of Sci-Fi Cult Classic Syndicate

The year is 2069 and the world is dark and insidious. Without government oversight, syndicate competition has grown increasingly cutthroat as they compete for rule over the market place. In America, three major corporations are at the center of the brutal syndicate business — Eurocorp, Cayman Global, and Aspari. Welcome back to the sci-fi world of Syndicate.

In Syndicate, you take on the role of Eurocorp’s latest prototype agent, Miles Kilo. The usual weapons are used against competitors, but in this advanced digital future, everything and everyone are connected. DART 6 bio-chip technology has been implanted into agents' heads, enabling them to slow down time, breach the digital world around them, and bring down enemies with upgradable hacking mechanics.

Starbreeze Studios is creating this unique revival of Syndicate as a savage first-person action shooter. Fast-paced and challenging, the game will deliver an epic adventure to new gamers and fans of the original alike. Familiar weapons and environments return with fresh interpretations and a separate four-player co-op mode will feature missions from the original Syndicate.

Syndicate will be available in early 2012 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
