While the original Syndicate was a real-time tactical game played from an isometric view, the new Syndicate isâ€”unsurprisinglyâ€”a "visceral first-person shooter experience," according to the game's description. Set in the year 2069, Syndicate is set in a world "no longer governed by politicians," but "divided up into regions controlled by megacorporations known as Syndicates."
"These Syndicates have revolutionized how the consumer interacts with the digital world," reads the game description. "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."
Business has become war in Syndicate, with "bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers" at the front line. Players will assume the role of Miles Kilo, an Agent of the Syndicate Eurocorp.
