A reimagined version of Bullfrog's 1993 isometric strategy game, Syndicate is a futuristic first-person shooter designed by Swedish developer Starbreeze Studios. You play as a computer-enhanced agent named Miles Kilo in a world ruthlessly run by mega-corporations. Working on behalf of Eurocorp, Agent Kilo must use his militarized neural chip implant, combat training, and advanced weapons to infiltrate rival corporations, assassinate key targets, and retrieve important technology.
Miles' chip implant lets him analyze the world around him. Digital overlays will appear over people, defense turrets, security doors, and other objects, allowing players to hack or breach systems to override their controls. Since the general population has also received neural implants, they can be breached as well -- allowing you the option to influence minds in violent or peaceful ways.
Each type of ability, whether it's seeing through walls or slowing time, is fueled by adrenaline that's maintained through combat and performing other high-risk actions. As you progress, you'll be able to acquire new equipment, chips, and weapons to enhance your character's abilities. In addition to the single-player campaign, Syndicate offers four-player online co-op support in nine missions inspired by the original game. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
