Syndicate is a first-person shooter video game developed by Starbreeze Studios, released on February 21, 2012 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. It is a reboot of the Syndicate series developed by Bullfrog Productions, changing the genre from a tactical shooter to a first-person shooter.
In 2017, the Eurocorp mega-corporation is born after the world's largest corporate merger. In 2025, Eurocorp releases the DART chip, a neural implant that allows users to access the dataverse and makes most electronic devices obsolete. As a result of the DART chip, the world is no longer ruled by governments, but by large mega-corporations known as "Syndicates". However, only half of the world's population embraces the chip, while the "unchipped" are abandoned and denied the same benefits afforded by their chipped counterparts. Furthermore, corporate espionage for dominance between Syndicates becomes the norm, resulting in the creation of "Agents": bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers who protect the interests of their corporate masters.
The game is set in 2069 and you are Agent Miles Kilo, EuroCorp's latest agent equipped with the new prototype DART 6 chip.

Notice from Agent Program technician to program director:
Agent unit showing abnormal optic response to luminescence: vision heavily impaired when exposed to bright lights.
Proposed solution: Application of petroleum jelly to Agent optics should be discontinued.
Additionally, Agent has complained of spontaneous unwanted playback of "dubstep [sic]" on his internal audio loop. Analysis traces the fault to an unregistered "Bitchin' Techno" subroutine. Advise security sweep and comparison of staff entertainment preference data to identify culprit.
Hey, just asking a quick favor! if you could take 5 seconds to check out my channel it would mean the world!!! Also, I am always looking for new people to work with, so if your interested in working together or collab in anyways hit me up on twitter! @iinfiniit
I have a series called Takeover Tuesday which gives you an opportunity to upload on my channel!
Interesting to see what that game was about. I now feel validated in my decision to never play it. The first person view does a poor job of making the agents look cool, and the focus on a rogue agent regaining his freedom/humanity/conscience is a cliché that has no business in the Syndicate franchise.
Now I'm going to play some more Satellite Reign.
You: "and the original comment said that syndicate was a deus ex wannabe implying that you think it came out after deus ex despite the fact that syndicate was an older game"
Me, earlier comment: "The franchise, maybe.
Not sure why it should matter though, I'm talking about that specific game which looks and plays nothing like the previous games of the franchise."
+The Algerian and there are more games better than deus ex...and the original comment said that syndicate was a deus ex wannabe implying that you think it came out after deus ex despite the fact that syndicate was an older game so since when did this turned out to be a game competition in terms of a better game this goes to deus ex for sure but I could say that syndicates graphics make it the better game ya know
+Jak jakjak I was so disapointed with the forced choice. In my head I figured euro corp was the probably just as corrupt as the other companies, so I might aswell just stay with eurocorp. Kinda sucks that it had to play out like that.
+Foxtrod That would explain why the agents are so underdeveloped. No mechanical implants, brain/heart/eye augmentations or the skin augmentation (as seen in the intro to syndicate 1). You can tell theyre just people with a lot of health unlike the bunch in syndicate 1 and 2 where they could get hit by a car, get up, pick up their minigun and continue on their merry way. Though the hacking part looks fun.
This was actually a good game, combat and gameplay were satisfying and brutal. And the background and atmosphere accompanied with the brutal cutscenes and killmoves were so sweet. To bad the game is so short :(
I liked this as an FPS, the gunplay was excellent (not big on the genre aside from Half-Life) and the atmosphere was great. I'm a fan of the Syndicate series back to the Bullfrog Amiga version, but there was a lot more they could have done with this remake in terms of tactics. In the single player mode squad based play was completely done away with and the online Co-Op mode died out rather quickly which was one of its best assets. The single player maps could have been set up so you could assign snipers, persuaders, healers and the rest or switch inbetween them as their controller. Definitely a game that seemed to have its wings clipped. Could have at least been a more intelligent version of COD.
Looking forward to Satellite Reign though.
As a fan of the originals I was debating getting this one even if I typically dislike FPS games. Unfortunately after watching this, I'm even less inspired to do so.
Thanks for the movie. Even if the jump cuts were a bit disorienting.
Thanks for sharing the vid mate. Regardless of how under rated this game became I still think Starbreeze did a good job of remaking this. Was a huge fan of the original and even though I won't have the chance to play this I thoroughly enjoyed watching.
I thought the same thing when I heard "Red Lime" was being developed by a company that only makes FPS games. For me, one of the franchise's defining features was that you were the main character who controlled a team of peon agents from a desktop in your zeppelin command centre high above the city. Kind of meta when you think about it.
Yea, that's because like I've been saying. Two completely different games from different genres now. Aside for sharing the same title, they share nothing else in common, comparing them is a bit silly now.
I never said that they have to be comparable.
I also played both and the new one does feel like any other modern shooter.. It is unoriginal as fuck.
The original on the other hand has many unique gameplay things that deserve to be respected for their originality.
+HybridEnergy The original game from 1993 is much, MUCH better. Trust me. It's not overrated at all. Especially for it's time it does deserve its good ratings.
They took an amazing and very original game which was unique and made a stupid
FPS in a style which we already have seen thousands of times out of
