Re: Syndicate reboot (Project Redlime)
Wat een gaaf spel vond ik dat toentertijd zeg. Dat muziekje vond ik altijd echt geniaal, hopen dat ze die een beetje er in houden.
Sfeer en gevoel doet ook erg aan Deus Ex denken.
- Aah… Syndicate. Moest even weer dit filmpje kijken, want dat blijft me bij van die game. Maar ok, jammer dat het ene FPS is geworden en geen strategische shooter.
- Ben benieuwd naar het Sci-fi fiction verhaal! Doet het altijd goed in FPS shooters, zolang de AI intelligence maar in orde is.
- Erg jammer. Hoop dat het net zo hard faalt als Front Mission Evolved zodat er weer een echte Syndicate game gemaakt kan worden.
[size=3]Info, screens on Syndicate reboot leak from Origin[/size]
Boom. Details on the still to be officially announced Project Redlime from Starbreeze have leaked from EA Origin, showing it is just as we thought it was: a reboot to old Bullfrog IP Syndicate.
The game, which will be published via EA Partners, will be an action shooter, unlike the Molyneux-made real-time tactical original from 1993. â€œBusiness is warâ€ is the new motto for the title, it seems.
Youâ€™ll play as Miles Kilo â€“ Eurocorpâ€™s newest prototype agent â€“ in the year 2069, where the world is now governed by Syndicates, who have â€œrevolutionized how the consumer interacts with the digital world.â€
The storyâ€™s being written by Richard Morgan, who penned the story to Crysis 2 for Crytek.
Syndicateâ€™s gameplay will be affected by a â€œneural DART6 chip implant that allows you to interface directly with the Dataverse,â€ meaning youâ€™ll be able to look through walls, slow down time and â€œbreach your enemy and everything digital in the world.â€
Four-player online co-op will also be included, with nine missions from the original Syndicate being reimagined for the reboot.
Thereâ€™s screens and a cover art on NeoGAF and Gematsu.
The forum thread on GAF also shows a magazine cover from GameReactor Sweden for its next issue. Earlier this week, Starbreeze employee Rickard Johansson tweeted a web page from the magazine. The tweet has since been deleted.
GR Sweden had promised it was â€œfirst in the world the story of a not yet announced big game.â€
No platforms are mentioned, but you can probably guess PS3, 360 and PC.
Itâ€™s about time
A Syndicate reboot has long been rumoured since early 2008, when Starbreeze signed a deal with EA Partners that would see it work on bringing back a classic EA IP, codenamed Project Redlime, as well as a title on the Jason Bourne IP.
Work on the latter, apparently known as The Bourne Ascendancy was canned back in early 2010, but Redlime continued onwards.
Since then, a road trail of trademark filings, classification listings, leaks from the game and nudges & hints from EA execs have been all thatâ€™s come from it.
A member at a swedish forum has dug up some new info about the new Starbreeze Syndicate game, which will probably be revealed next week. The game description was put up early on the EA Origin store together with some screenshots.
Syndicate is the re-imagination of a cult classic franchise from 1993 - a unique action shooter set in a not too distant future, where Business is War.
2069 â€“ No longer governed by politicians, the developed world is divided up into regions controlled by megacorporations 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 worldÂ¡Â¦s data and control their technology, they can do this at the blink of an eye via neural chip implant. Civilians flocked to be Â¡Â§chipÂ¡Â¦dÂ¡Â¨ 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 behaviour. 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 SyndicateÂ¡Â¦s bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers. They can breach anything in the wired world 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, EurocorpÂ¡Â¦s latest prototype agent, and embark on a brutal action adventure of corruption and revenge.
â€¢ Chip Enhanced Gameplay: Slow down time, see through walls, and breach your enemy and everything digital in the world with Dart vision â€“ A neural DART6 chip implant that allows you to interface directly with the Dataverse.
â€¢ 4-Player Online Co-op: Assemble your Syndicate for global domination. A 4-player, online co-op experience like no other, with chip enhanced gameplay and 9 missions re-imagined from the original Syndicate.
â€¢ 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.
â€¢ Sci-Fi Fiction: Immerse yourself in the world of Syndicate 2069, with a world-class sci-fi story experience, written by bestselling author Richard Morgan.
It is rumored that the game will be revealed in the next issue of the Swedish Gamereactor magazine which will arrive next week.
