We told you all about EA and Starbreeze Studios' upcoming Syndicate reboot earlier this month. Now, the folks at Starbreeze have released a trailer that reveals a little bit more about the game—including its release date, February 21, 2012.
If you're having trouble keeping track of what's going on amid all of those fast cuts, gunshots, and bursts of gritty industrial music, here's the skinny from the video description:
In the not too distant future, the world is divided into regions controlled by mega-corporations known as Syndicates. In this future, BUSINESS is WAR, and you are the weapon: the latest prototype agent for Eurocorp, one of the most ruthless Syndicates in a world dominated by greed. In single-player, embark on a unique sci-fi shooter adventure of corruption and revenge, as you utilize DART 6 chip-enhanced technology to breech, manipulate and control the wired world. Or form your own Syndicate in four-player co-op and dominate nine action-packed missions inspired by the original Syndicate game.
Yep, that sounds a fair bit like the original Syndicate... although as we pointed out last time, that title had isometric third-person graphics and came out all the way back in 1993. The trailer for the remake looks enticing, though. It makes me think of Deus Ex: Human Revolution, but with a more dystopian feel and, apparently, a whole lot more violence.
