Technology, it’s everywhere you go. From your toilet, to your kitchen, to the car. Literally, the world around you is full of tech and without it, many things that we take for granted today wouldn’t exist and we’d barely be able to move on. Even basic map reading skills are dying with the advent of smartphone enabled GPS systems. Yet, this tech could be bad and go wrong – this is the premise of the latest game announced by EA today – Syndicate.

In Syndicate, the world has advanced in many ways and people now have machines inside them, with CHIP technology that allows corporations to take control of the world with no government in sight to stop them. The people become the causality of this war as these corporations have the technology and power to influence the public via bio-chips installed in their heads. Syndicate blends fast paced action and futuristic settings with innovative chip breach gameplay to provide a unique and brutal sci-fi first person shooter experience.

Through DART 6 bio-chip technology implanted in their heads, gamers can dilate down time, see through walls, breach the digital world and enemies around them using a variety of upgradable hacking mechanics. Gamers that pre-order Syndicate will receive The Executive Package at no extra charge, which includes unique perks for the game’s deep 4-player co-op campaign. Like every good executive, players with The Executive Package will be able to stand out amongst their friends as they flaunt their solid gold versions of all loadout guns, utilize golden dart vision, and showcase the executive gold Syndicate logos during co-op missions.

Syndicate will be released in the UK on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, on the 24th February 2012. So only a few months to wait.
