A couple of weeks ago, we got a brief teaser of co-op Syndicate gameplay. The video only showed small snippets of action, so it didn't illustrate much in the way of actual cooperation. Now, eight minutes of continuous co-op footage has been released.
I'm not seeing a whole lot of actual coordination among the four players, and the action looks a little formulaic. It's hard to get a real sense of things with all the quick cuts between player perspectives, though. At the very least, the environments look ripe for properly coordinated attacks.
Up to four players will be able to team up for Syndicate co-op. The game is scheduled to be released in February, and it looks like we'll be getting new teasers twice a month until then. The previews should give apprehensive fans of the original game a chance to see whether the new one will offend their nostalgic sensibilities. While still on the fence, I'm leaning toward checking the game out.
