Syndicate Has No Online Pass

"We Want As Little Barriers To Entry As Possible"

EA has confirmed that Starbreeze's upcoming Syndicate reboot will not ship with an online pass - and all multiplayer functionality will be unlocked regardless of whether you buy a new or preowned version. Apparently they're confident that players will enjoy the cooperative modes enough to not trade it in, which is actually rather refreshing logic to us. Full story after the break.

Syndicate Weapons Trailer Gears Up For Heavy Combat

Yesterday we brought you some sensational Syndicate screenshots that showed off the firepower to armour-piercing, lightning-throwing advantage.

But if a picture is worth a thousand words, this explosive new trailer means I can probably take the rest of the day off. In all seriousness, Syndicate is looking very promising indeed, and it's one of our most anticipated games of next year if only to discover whether something worthwhile can come out of reboot culture.

Syndicate Hands-On Preview | Breaching Hearts & Minds!

Reboots of beloved gaming franchises tend to be met with a fair amount of angry backlash, and none more so than reboots that twist classic strategy games into First Person Shooters. And let's face it: strategy games don't get much more classic than Syndicate. Numerous fans have added their disgruntled voices to the debate; annoyed and confused as to why yet another beloved brand is being resurrected by the nightmarish AAA machine.

But here's the thing: Starbreeze make great shooters. I'm as unconvinced as anyone about the need for all these reboots, but if my experience with the singleplayer preview level is representative of the finished article, Syndicate is set to be just that. A great shooter... with one hell of an electronic warfare suite.

Syndicate Hands-On Preview | Breaching Hearts & Minds!

Starbreeze's FPS credentials are immediately apparent after leaping into the action, taking place in the research labs of rival Megacorp Aspari. The standard FPS controls are instantly accessible, and the movement speed, sensitivity and weight is absolutely spot-on. The selection of weapons, ranging from nifty automatic pistols, brutal shotguns and assault rifles all perform beautifully, kicking back with a determined sense of weight, heft and power. Many of the firearms feature a secondary fire mode, such as the Gauss Rifle which can lock onto targets with the left trigger and deliver its powerful ordinance around corners or over cover. Gunplay is as slick, solid and capable as you'd expect from the veteran studio, and brutal melee takedowns are as satisfying to pull off as they are easy to trigger.

Syndicate Video Details Breaching Mechanics

Lots Of In-Game Stuff, Too

It's a pity we've known a Syndicate reboot was on the cards for a while now; otherwise, I expect we'd be pretty excited for Starbreeze's business espionage shooter. It's a bit late to the party, too, as you'd be forgiven for thinking the recently released announcement trailer was marketing material for Deus Ex DLC. However, in typically bullish manner, EA has released an all new Syndicate video via GameTrailers, detailing the game's breaching mechanics and much, much more. There's a lot of impressive in-game stuff inside, too, and the rep on hand even has some fighting talk regarding Syndicate's competition with the aforementioned Deus Ex. Saucy!
