While I freely admit that I would love for the upcoming Syndicate reboot to be more in the vein of the original game, what I’ve seen so far hasn’t really upset me overly much. Starbreeze has a solid track record, and from recent reports, have been working on this reboot for quite some time. So it isn’t that huge a surprise that EA’s now announcing that the release date for the game is February 21, 2012.
Also, they’ve announced that pre-orders of the game will receive The Executive Package, which will include unique perks for the game’s 4-player co-op campaign. This includes solid gold version of all load out guns, golden dart vision, and showing off gold Syndicate logos during co-op missions. It’ll be interesting to see how this turns out on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3 next year.
