In the Syndicate reboot from Starbreeze Studios and EA, agents are outfitted with neural-chips that help them control various things in battle and act as an ID of sorts for the person that they’ve been implanted in. In battle the chip allows agents to hack into the chips of enemy soldiers and induce them into certain actions.
Some of those actions include suicide and persuading the enemy to switch sides and start killing their allies. It’s a surprisingly morbid and disturbing power to have even if it is just AI.
Syndicate will be out on Xbox 360, Playstation 3 and PC on February 21.
