This Week in Co-Op: Syndicate...Like a Boss

In my recent Syndicate review I mentioned a great scenario in which three of us managed to take on a particularly tough level and come out victorious.  The actual scenario turned out to be one of the final levels of the co-op campaign.  The most amazing thing about our victory was that my two partners, Mike and Andrew, were only level 1 or 2 characters with minimal upgrades as they had just gotten the game.  While my level 14 or 15 was nothing to scoff it, it still showcases how balanced Syndicate's co-op can be even with an unbalanced team.

Industrial Espionage with Guns; the Syndicate Launch Trailer

Hacking into emails and rooting through bins are boring forms of industrial espionage. In the 2069 future of Syndicate, espionage takes the form of weapons and the ability to enter people's minds. Where do I sign up? Syndicate is out February 21st in the US and February 24th in the EU. To celebrate Starbreeze have produced a launch trailer. Lucky for you, there is no need to break into their servers to get it, as Co-Optimus provides it after Read More.

Syndicate's Co-Op Mode Will Be Available to New Buyers and Used Gamers Alike

There will be no need to "breach" your 360 or PS3 in order to enjoy the 4 player online co-op mode in Starbreeze's upcoming revival of the PC classic Syndicate. In a move that's a bit different from how they (and many other publishers) are currently releasing games, publisher EA has stated that no online pass will be required in order to play the game with friends. This means that whether you buy the game used or new, you'll have access to all of the content that originally comes on the disc.

In a recent interview Starbreeze suggest that the new Syndicate will be a tough 50 hours worth of gameplay

Syndicate Provides 50 Hours of Tough Gameplay

Many gamers today don't know they are born. Back when I started playing games you were lucky to get out of the first room, never mind complete the game (I'm looking at you Jet Set Willy). Today it’s all AutoSaves and constant check points. An upcoming game that may buck this trend is Syndicate. In a recent interview with Eurogamer, Starbreeze have hinted that the game will provide around 50 hours of pleasure, but you'll have to work hard to complete everything.

Syndicate Co-Op Demo Hits PSN, XBLA This Month

We're a little over a month away from the release of a game that's certainly one of my most (hesitantly) anticipated co-op games of the year, Starbreeze's FPS remake of Syndicate. When I first heard about one of my favorite RPG, RTS hybrid games for the PC getting a new release, I was rather hesitant about the change to a FPS format. Then the game footage started making the rounds and I was a little more encouraged. The co-op aspect, though, is one that still leaves me wondering a bit about how well it will actuall work within the game's seemingly "twitch" framework. Fortunately for all of us, we'll be able to test it out soon enough.
