EA announces ‘Syndicate’ reboot

EA have revealed that Syndicate will be heading to the PlayStation 3 in 2012.

The FPS, developed by StarBreeze Studios, will see gamers control Miles Kilo “and embark on an epic action adventure full of corruption and revenge.” An interesting addition is a 4-player co-op mode that contains missions from the original.

Here’s the blurb from EA:

“Set in 2069, Syndicate takes players into a dark, Machiavellian world run without government oversight with many syndicates vying for total dominance of their local market place. With no one to question their intentions or actions, three mega corporations – Eurocorp, Cayman Global, and Aspari – are at the forefront of this brutal war for control of the pivotal American market. In the world of Syndicate, everything is digitally connected, including the people. Players aren’t limited to the weapons in their hands. Through DART 6 bio-chip technology implanted in their head, players can slow down time and breach the digital world around them to take down their foes using a variety of upgradable hacking mechanics. Syndicate’s blend of fast-paced, futuristic, action shooter settings and story combined with innovative chip breach gameplay instantly immerses players in a unique digital world.”

StarBreeze confirmed they have been hard at work on Syndicate for “the past couple years” and that they want “to provide a challenging action shooter for today’s gamers as well as fans of the original”. Here are the first screenshots:
