Syndicate is a first-person shooter video game developed by Starbreeze Studios, released on February 21, 2012 for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 platforms. It is a reboot of the Syndicate series developed by Bullfrog Productions, changing the genre from a tactical shooter to a first-person shooter.
In 2017, the Eurocorp mega-corporation is born after the world’s largest corporate merger. In 2025, Eurocorp releases the DART chip, a neural implant that allows users to access the dataverse and makes most electronic devices obsolete. As a result of the DART chip, the world is no longer ruled by governments, but by large mega-corporations known as “Syndicates”. However, only half of the world’s population embraces the chip, while the “unchipped” are abandoned and denied the same benefits afforded by their chipped counterparts. Furthermore, corporate espionage for dominance between Syndicates becomes the norm, resulting in the creation of “Agents”: bio-engineered and chip-augmented enforcers who protect the interests of their corporate masters.
The game is set in 2069 and you are Agent Miles Kilo, EuroCorp’s latest agent equipped with the new prototype DART 6 chip.
