2069 – No longer governed by politicians, the developed world is divided up into regions controlled by mega-corporations known as syndicates. These syndicates have revolutionized how the consumer interacts with the digital world. No longer does the consumer require a device to access the world’s data and control their technology, they can do this at the blink of an eye via neural chip implant.
Civilians flocked to be “chip’d” and enjoy all that their selected syndicate has to offer; housing, medical, banking, insurance, education, entertainment and jobs. One complete package. One complete lifestyle. In return, the syndicates gained unprecedented insights, and control, over the individual and their behavior. With little governmental oversight, business has become war. The syndicates will stop at nothing for ultimate market dominance.
At the front line of this war are the agents, the syndicate’s bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers. They can breach anything in the wired dataverse including their enemies, their weapons and the environment that surrounds them, making them the most efficient and deadly technological weapons in the world. Take on the role of miles kilo, Eurocorp’s latest prototype agent, and embark on a brutal action adventure of corruption and revenge.
Syndicate is a re-imagination of the classic 1993 Syndicate game – a cyber punk FPS set in a dystopian world where large Syndicates rule and Business is War. In the 4-player co-op, team-up to take down rival Syndicates. Blast your way in and utilize your military grade DART6 chip to breach enemies and the environment as you battle for market dominance and your life. Some takeovers are more hostile than others.
Agents have a wide variety of weapons and breach applications that they can use with their DART 6 chip. These applications allow your agent to manipulate the digital world and breach everything from the ceiling fan to their enemies.
- The DART 6 chip is a weaponized version of the Dart chip, which is located inside the Agent’s skull. It allows the user to perceive environmental information in real-time, as well as breach other user’s chips and chip-based systems via a series of different applications.
- You’ll be able to unlock 18 weapons and upgrade them in 82 different ways.
