Script For EA's Syndicate Remake Leaked
Written Thursday, May 26, 2011 By Richard Walker

Well, it seems to be almost official that EA is indeed working with Riddick and Darkness dev Starbreeze Studios on a remake of classic Bullfrog's seminal Syndicate, although it has yet to be formally announced. However, with this latest script leak it certainly appears that the rumours are true.

Siliconera has managed to get its mitts on a chunk of the script for Syndicate, the game in which warring corporations lord it over a dystopian cyberpunk world. There's a chip called 'Dart' that can alter memories, a diplomatic crisis between EuroCorp and the Gulf over uranium prices all over the news and an uprising from a resistance with a hacker know as Logos attacking the Manhattan Complex before making a break for it.

Naturally the script excerpts contain spoilers aplenty, but if you'd like to read them, you can head on over to Siliconera and pore over them at your leisure. If you'd rather go into Syndicate cold however, we'd obviously recommend steering well clear. Hopefully, EA will now get around to officially announcing Syndicate soon.

I guess I'm just a fan of the The Darkness, but I'm a bit disappointed they were working on a project that prevented them from taking over The Darkness 2. Definitely interested to see what they have up their sleeves.

Cool but how much of a name is Syndicate now to your average COD player? I loved it back in the 90's and its expansions and sequal(armies of citizens with mini guns all under my control with the 'Persuadertron') but not sure if this will have a market. Unhappy bunny if FPS

It'll be interesting to see what happens. The original Syndicate was one of my favourite ever games but syndicate wars was not as enjoyable, although not terrible. I hope they do something great.

Hell YES. Syndicate and Syndicate Wars was one of my favorite games. Brainwash a bunch of civilians with persuadertrons and have them pick up guns. Massive mob of death.

I'm having horrible flash backs to the final level of the original game. I don't think I lasted more than a minute on that, got cut to shreds almost instantly. It will be interesting to see how they manage this for consoles (if it is even coming for consoles).

Awesome game, don't have high hopes for a remake though unless it's the same style as the original.

Man, Sounds cool and all, but I'd much rather see another Riddick game released. And maybe a true sequel for HD consoles:-) oh, well, hopefully one day!

I remember playing the original. Never went for the mission objectives. Just ran round and cause havoc.

Loved the original back on my Amiga. Hope the console conversion works though
