Unsurprisingly, our report from the other day has been proven correct, as EA formally announces a reboot of the Syndicate franchise from Starbreeze Studios.
As per our original post, this Syndicate title re-imagines the classic franchise as a first person shooter, following the exploits of Eurocorp's star agent Miles Kilo, through a tale of corruption and revenge in the corporation controlled and manipulated dystopian cyberpunk future of 2069.
Like any good first person shooter, Syndicate will feature a host of weapons for players to blast their way through baddies, many of which old fans will instantly recognise, while hacking abilities through the main character's DART 6 bio-chip will spice up the formula. Players will use both of these features throughout a single player focus campaign, as well as four player co-op modes.
Syndicate is scheduled to launch early 2012 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. You can check out full sized images of the previous report's screenshots below.
