1993’s Syndicate, an RTS-esque game from Bullfrong Productions, is getting an update via EA and Starbreeze Studios. The new version switches up the form to make it a first-person shooter.
Along with the switch to the FPS genre, the new Syndicate is getting co-op. Some interesting powers are shown off here. For example, the ability to x-ray through walls, tracking enemy bullets and an area-effect blast wave.
It’s kind of cyber-punky and full of trench-coats. You know who is who because the rent-a-soldiers have body armor units and the agents all wear trench-coats. So there’s that.
Look for the Syndicate remake to be out on February 21, 2011 on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC.
