Watch an eight-minute Syndicate co-op assault

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.

    love the new mechanic for games. Every kill is worth a number, get enough numbers so you can use a new widget to get more numbers…boring

    “Formulaic” sums it up pretty well and the interface is way too busy. There doesn’t need to be running kill or ammo counts in the middle of the screen. Keep that stuff off to the side so I can see what I’m shooting at!

      I can’t +1 this enough.

    AI: Sit around, fire around, strafe side to side after 40-50 bullets.

    A bit to like in this game, a lot to dislike, though.

    I like the fresh colour scheme and the skin theme, it’s like Brink meets COD.

    Wait … my god, this is COD reskinned to Brink. There’s even parkour moves.

    The person who is showcasing this is so bad at the game too. How can a game dev. not understand and be good at games? Isn’t there some sort of irony in this?

    I only wish the AI routines demonstrated more interesting behavior.

    Looks like a typical shooter to me, the sci-fi theme is nicely executed though, kinda feels like halo in some ways.

    Looks like a PS2 game; scripted, hardwired, and repetitive.Not even gonna talk about the bad graphics and the 15-year old mechanics.
    But then again, it’s a console game.Something for the kids to waste time on.

    Edit: It looks better the MW3 though..

      Now that you mention it.. Coz i wondered why some head-shots took forever to happen.

        I like the headshots when he wasn’t even aiming at the head. LOL, what?

    like the dev will almost certainly get the game.
