Video teases four-player Syndicate co-op

When EA spilled the beans about its upcoming Syndicate reboot in September, the company mentioned that the game would include a four-player co-op campaign. Earlier today, a video showcasing that campaign made its way onto YouTube. Here it is:

The video doesn’t reveal too much, but in September, EA said the co-op element will involve a “separate and deep” campaign designed specifically for co-operative play. It looks like there will definitely be plenty of running and gunning, at least.

I’m glad co-op is making a comeback. Left 4 Dead and its sequel had a nifty co-op element, as did Portal 2—and let’s not forget Serious Sam 3, which is due out later this month. Shooting your way through a campaign with friends over voice chat is definitely a ton of fun, and I hope more game studios go the extra mile to include co-op content in the future.

    Now if it only came on Steam instead of Origin. Damn you EA.

    I’m noticing a shift in content of this site from hardware to video game news. heh

      it IS becoming a bit more discussed, but that’s probably just because there’s an F ton of games coming out.

          The f-ton[b<]ne[/b<] or femto-tonne is: 10^-15 tonne = 10^-9 g or 1 nanogram Not exactly a huge figure, is it. sweatshopking clearly doesn't know metric units. <nerd off>

      PC gaming remains one of the bigger reasons to buy individual components and build these hulking things we call desktops. In the laptop and portable world we are inevitably moving to… it may be one of the last remaining reasons left. A good portion of builders build to game… Why can’t the site walk a professional line between tech and gaming? I appreciate the gaming news here ESPECIALLY because it comes without the tackiness and flare you find on typical game sites.

          Yep. If it weren’t for games I’d stop building monster machines for myself. The HTPC would become the last bastion of desktops.

      True, but Syndicate looks like fun in a Deus Ex kind of way, so….

      TR just had a poll a few months ago asking us what we wanted TR editors to cover. Because of feedback, there has actually been a large boost in stories covering hardware, i.e. cases and laptops, for starters.

      what imagination is this?

      they have always covered topics from hardware to video game news and a broad variety of other stuff. If there’s mostly hardware news one week and video game the next, well, guess which gets covered more?
