Starbreeze Studios and EA are rebooting the 1993 series Syndicate – the RTS-esque game originally from Bullfrog Productions. The new version switches from the RTS style to a more contemporary first-person shooter.
One of the features in the new game will be a co-op mode. Starbreeze takes you through a little bit of the new mode in this brief walkthrough. You’ll see some of the different weapons and powers like the x-ray ability and tracking enemy bullets.
An interesting feature that they’re showing off in this video is the amount of information that flits across the HUD. All of your stats are shown throughout. The one that caught our eye is the ability to see the stats of your teammates by looking at them. Everything looks a little busy, but not too cluttered. It could be an interesting look for the game.
Look for the Syndicate remake to be out on February 21, 2011 on Playstation 3, Xbox 360, PC.
