First Screenshots, Official Info From The New Syndicate

So, there's a new Syndicate game. Still not quite sure what to think about that. Anyway, here are the first official screenshots from the title.

EA just sent through a press release confirming the game's existence, as well as all the information contained in the leaked info we posted over the weekend.

Tiny versions of some of these screens were included in that leak, but here they are in a size where you can actually see what's going on.

"Our goal with Syndicate is to provide a challenging action shooter for today's gamers as well as fans of the original. I'm sure they will enjoy and recognise the legacy that made it such a classic," EA's Jeff Gamon says in the press release. "Fans of the franchise will recognise many weapons and environments in the game, but in a whole new way. The game also provides a separate and deep 4-player co-op mode featuring missions from the original cult classic, which adds another layer of depth to the overall experience."

It's coming for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, and is expected sometime in "early 2012".


    Fuck this looks Visceral.

      The internal organs in the main cavities of the body, esp. those in the abdomen, e.g., the intestines"

      Sure does. Intestinal, even.

      GG EA marketing...

    Isometric strategy games are largely a thing of the past. I say leave them in the past where they belong.

    Example - although Fallout 1 and 2 are among my most favorite games of all time, I also loved Fallout 3 and Vegas, and I would prefer to play a first person game instead of top-down. I would have enjoyed fallout 1 and 2 just as much in FPS format, had the technology of the time been able to support such a thing. Obviously the market reflects my preference which is why we are seeing so many old franchises remade into FPS's. This is a good thing, FPS games are able to immerse a player in the game's universe in a way that isometric games cannot. You ARE the character, you're not just a distant voyeur observing from above.

    Starbreeze Studios are awesome developers and they make excellent games of very high quality. I think the reactions to these screenshots are mindlessly negative and reflect an unpleasant trend where a vocal minority bitches and moans about good games while the rest of us just anticipate, play and enjoy them. The old Syndicate was a great game, but the Starbreeze reimagining will also be great. Don't be afraid of change, people, all this pissing and moaning makes you sound like old ladies learning that Murder She Wrote has been cancelled.
