WELCOME TO THE MACHINE
In honor of some of my old friends from the TRON EVOLUTION grid signing on with EA Games franchise reboot ‘Syndicate‘, I have put together a short, game inspired mix. Featuring some cuts from Leftfield, Digitalism, Skrillex and Red Titanic.
This titles been out a while so you can probably pick it up on the cheap and while it doesn’t do anything new for the FPS genre, its highly doubtful you’ve played one this stylish.
In 2017, the Eurocorp mega-corporation is born after the world’s largest corporate merger. In 2025, Eurocorp releases the DART chip, a neural implant that allows users to access the dataverse and makes most electronic devices obsolete. As a result of the DART chip, the world is no longer ruled by governments, but by large mega-corporations known as “Syndicates”. However, only half of the world’s population embraces the chip, while the “unchipped” are abandoned and denied the same benefits afforded by their chipped counterparts. Furthermore, corporate espionage for dominance between Syndicates becomes the norm, resulting in the creation of “Agents”: bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers who protect the interests of their corporate masters.
The game is set in 2069 and the player controls Agent Miles Kilo, EuroCorp’s latest agent equipped with the new prototype DART 6 chip created by Eurocorp scientists. The campaign mode features voices by Rosario Dawson, Brian Cox and Michael Wincott.
Giant Bomb awarded Syndicate 5/5 stars and praised the weaponry and interesting world, as well as its co-operative mode.
IGN gave the game a 7.5 and praised the game’s co-op, shooting, and “Breach” mechanics as fast-paced and original.
GameTrailers gave it a 8.2, citing the gameplay as fun and innovative.
Hope you enjoy!
