[Kotaku] The Syndicate Reboot Is Real, First Details Leak Out of EA

While the original Syndicate was a real-time tactical game played from an isometric view, the new Syndicate is—unsurprisingly—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.

Quote:
• 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.

I think I was like ten or eleven when I first played the syndicate line. I had no freaking idea what I was doing, what the story was about, or how to properly complete anything. I spent the whole time trying to persuade citizens and, if I remember correctly, shooting at them (might've possibly been the enemy).

To be honest, I wish they wouldn't rehash a lot of the classics like this. If gaming companies feel so compelled by the story, fine, no big deal. Just give the game a similar name and perhaps advertise that its based on a similar story, but don't directly take the games name. If the game itself is truly good, it shouldn't need to live off its predecessors fame.

That just pisses off people who loved those classics so much.

This game rocked in the original, but much like the X-com games, i'm not holding my breath on a FPS remake.

Could be cool, might even be fun, but i'm not holding my breath.

Tell me about it. I still have my original copy of syndicate. I've tried desperately to get a copy of syndicate wars but I can never get a hold of it.

Part of the fun of syndicate and x-com is the tactical part and the ability to research and upgrade tech. I am extremly disappointed that these reboots attempt to cash in on the FPS trend instead of bucking it. I wish to god that Blizzard had bough those 2 franchises.

Yeah, all old classics are turning into FPS nowadays, unfortunately.

Fallout 3 is not a bad game (but only if you mod it), but it sure lacks the old feel I had while playing F1 & F2.

The kind of great games they used to make when we were growing up just don't sell the way they used to I guess. I think it will be quite a few years before the game market grows enough to see smaller publishers who cater to specific fans.
