Yup its Syndicate, here's the trailer.

Yea it's another first person shooter but that's no surprise since that's what Starbreeze makes. It looks really cool though. I always thought Starbreeze could make a good Deus Ex sequel but this is like the next best thing they could do since the universes are both cyberpunk. I would definitely like to check this out.

Also we should rename this thread to be the Syndicate thread.

I never saw or played Syndicate, but that trailer looks great! I hope this turns out as good as that looked.

That trailer was awesome.
This is now the Syndicate thread.
I'll rename this.

Awesome. Very Deus Ex-y.

I love Starbreeze's work in general.

Mine too.  I never could figure out how to recruit people though.

A bit of an underwhelming launch for a fantastic title from Starbreeze.

Started playing the singleplayer campaign today and it is pretty awesome.

Damn that's out today? I knew it was soon, just didn't know it was now. Let us know how it goes.

Edit: Whoa, Jeff on Giantbomb gives it 5 stars, interesting.

Nice, I just posted that review on Facebook as well. The game is phenomenal! For lack of better words, I'm gonna bluntly describe it as "Deus Ex for hardcore shooter fans" though that is a pretty harsh description.

Gonna spend more time with it and give further impressions.

Damn you people for making me want another game.  I still have Skyrim and Deus Ex: Human Revolution in shrink wrap and I don't know when I'll get to them.  My PC is still packed away.

Oh, this is funny...hehe.
Starbreeze left a .NFO in Syndicate PC's game-folder as their message to pirates.

Starbreeze Studios was raided today over "insider trading" and an arrest was made:

Keep in mind, Starbreeze really hasn't been Starbreeze since the core team members (that worked on Riddick games, The Darkness, Syndicate FPS) left after Syndicate FPS reboot to go form MachineGames (to work on the rebooted Wolfenstein series).

I had no idea they made Payday. But yeah, they're kind of not what they were. I loved them as a studio originally, I don't necessarily care what they do or don't do anymore.

Also, I don't know who the fuck ever expected a Walking Dead game to do well. That ship sailed long ago.

Overkill Studios made Payday.

Basically, the original Starbreeze core left to form MachineGames (and then many followed later) b/c Overkill pretty much merged w/ Starbreeze.

Starbreeze....well, wasn't Starbreeze anymore, after Syndicate FPS.
