An ol’ school classic comes to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, as Syndicate is dropped onto download servers in the form of a demo. Syndicate was originally released from Bullfrog Productions in 1993, and classified as a tactical isometric game. But Syndicate (2012) was developed by Starbreeze and converted to a first person shooter (not without controversy), with both single-player and co-op multiplayer modes. (FYI, co-op is playable for free on the PlayStation Network.)
What is Syndicate all about? The year is 2069, and the world is split into regions controlled by corporations rather than political structures. Each agent in Syndicate has a DART 6 chip embedded into his or her brain. The upgradable chip allows the team member to access a database to control weapons and other mechanisms, even other humans.
Syndicate will officially hit shelves in North America on Feb. 21, 2012 for PS3, Xbox 360, and Microsoft Windows. The game is rated “M” for mature. Give the demo a try and let us know what you think!
