"If you think you know Syndicate because you played the classic PC strategy games back in the day, then you’re going to need to throw out that knowledge… save for the story.
Set against the backdrop of a dire neo-dystopian future, Syndicate takes place in a world where government rule has given way to ultimate global control by multinational corporations, or syndicates. Boardroom discussions have been supplanted by military posturing, industrial espionage involves the violent removal of data (and leaders) by competing companies, and human chip implants are real, dividing the world’s population of billions into the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots.’
Welcome to the new world of Syndicate."
