Syndicate reboot leaked, first screenshots

Gematsu: "The oft-rumored EA and Starbreeze Syndicate is real. A description and set of screenshots were put up on the EA Origin store tonight, but were quickly removed. Not before the internet could grab hold of it, however."

Wow,another classic franchise gets ruined.

Aggesan2420d ago

I'm not so sure about that. One of the points in the description of the game is four player coop. Could be something like borderlands but with a syndicate touch. I loved the original and hope starbreeze can do it justice.

KruLLit2420d ago

If you do some research, you would know that starbreeze isn't a company that produces generic FPS titles.

It's soo awesome to see a Syndicate title.

Another FPS... ... ... ... How many is that now? I think it's about 20 to many.

lelo2play2420d ago (Edited 2420d ago )

Please no.. not another FPS. If not a strategy game like the first, at least let it be a 3rd person shooter.

EDIT.... never mind...
"Visceral FPS Experience: Utilize an upgradable arsenal of futuristic weapons, armor and gear to annihilate your enemies and harvest their chip technology for personal advancement and sinister corporate greed."

Yep ... FPS. Another franchise down the drain.

Before seeing your comment, I had the same thought and was about to post a similar comment.

Seems like this generation has been dominated by the FPS genre.

egidem2420d ago

This gen has been SUPERSATURATED with FPS.

Not that there's anything wrong with this genre, or having may choices, but it's because everyone wants to ride the same wave meaning very little (if any at all) innovation is going to take place.

...and for that I appreciate those other companies that decided to take a risk and come up with unique stuff like Heavy Rain or others who tried to attract a very niche market of gamers with games such as Demon's Souls.

I just hope to see less FPS games next gen.

Quagmire2420d ago

Yes, it is another FPS, and I agree with your viewpoints pn the over saturation of the genre, however there are a few developers who do thing differently with the FPS genre, and Starbreeze is one of them.

DOnt know who they are? They're only a developer who made titles like Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness. Both of thos games were FPS, but were completely different to conventional FPS standards, that they turned out to be great games, and I for one have hope for this.

egidem2420d ago

Played both The Darkness and Chronicles of Riddick. Very good games indeed. I just hope devs can keep the productivity up instead of doing similar stuff as other game devs.

OmegaSlayer2420d ago (Edited 2420d ago )

Yeah, really. :(
The only quality TPS is Gears Of War
Quantum Theory MWAHAHAHAHAH, Army Of Two sucks and Uncharted (that is awesome) is not a TPS

I mean, I'm not bashing the game, I wish it will turn out great whatever it is.
Just pointing out the lack of quality TPS

DeadlyFire2419d ago

I don't know what you guys are talking about. What is so bad about FPS. Its more realistic view point than 3rd person and its a great experience. Its never a negative thing about a game due to first person.

Want RTS, and RPGs then uh go play them.

KonGreat2419d ago

Well considering Syndicate was a strategy game to start off with its a pretty big let down for me at least. And there's already enough FPS games coming out/available already.

NovusTerminus2419d ago

Problem is, EVERYONE is using FPS. There is almost no diversity in the industry anymore. And just f.y.i. I prefer Action games like DMC and NG, and fighting games... BlazBlue standing as my favorite.

I like some of the idea's the west comes up with. But I would like to see more genre's used by them.

Starbreeze gives me hope that this will be more than a run of the mill FPS. They always layer on a lot of exploration and atmosphere to their games.

RyuDrinksTheDew2420d ago

exactly my thoughts.

people are throwing this game under the bus way to soon.

their work on Riddick is a great example at how this game could be amazing.

radphil2420d ago

Original content vs re-made content are 2 different things.

PrimordialSoupBase2420d ago

It all sounds very Deus Ex-like.

ATi_Elite2420d ago

Yes it does but looks like they are gonna Muck it up in hopes of creating yet another COD clone.

Son_Lee2420d ago

What the hell is Syndicate?

Godmars2902420d ago (Edited 2420d ago )

Aside from being too worried about bucking the current trend, devs likely don't want to risk presenting a "simple" game on a disc.

A game like this should be a RTS at least.

Son_Lee2420d ago

They're making THAT into an FPS? Grrr. It could very well be an RTS, or I think it would work better as an isometric game. NOT a twin-stick shooter, but isometric view with some RPG and stealth elements. I'd buy that in a heartbeat. Wonder what the reboot looks like.

Godmars2902420d ago (Edited 2420d ago )

Its sad that looking a the crowd AI because the reactions look way better than anything done today.

The automatic reaction of wanting as something other than a FPS would be worth something.

kramun2420d ago (Edited 2420d ago )


Why should we give a shit about your opinion on the game when you don't even know what Syndicate is? The game was made when you were probably swimming around in your fathers testicles.

Go educate yourself, and then come back and discuss the game.


I agree, it's not the direction I would like to see the series go in, and alarm bells are ringing.

I don't agree with Son_Lee coming into a topic to discuss it with the line....

'What the hell is Syndicate? '

I mean, if you don't know what the game is, why even bother saying it? We are on the internet, it's not too hard to find out.

egidem2420d ago

"The game was made when you were probably swimming around in your fathers testicles."

My God that's quite straight to the point.

ATi_Elite2420d ago

Whoa! i had to replay the 8:06 mark several times to hear that evil nerd laugh!!

"We might as well go ahead and blow it up Ahuh ahuh mahuh"!

yet another slightly off genre game being rebooted into another run of the mill generic FPS! Oh boy i just can't wait to buy Zombie DLC for this!

Syndicate remade using today's tech would be awesome as it would expand the isometric real-time tactical game that it is....maybe allow you to switch to FPS view for combat but retain the tactical part.
