Even though it was first revealed a few weeks back, EA’s Syndicate reboot has been (not so secretly) in development at Starbreeze for several years. But while EA took their sweet time to show it to the public, they’re not wasting any time to announce a release date: February 21, 2012. Yup, the Syndicate reboot will go from announcement to store shelves in less than six months.
To go along with a cofirmed release date, EA has unveiled the debut trailer for Syndicate and it is chock full of the inventive gunplay and creative melee combat that has become Starbreeze’s signature.
The trailer also reveals a Syndicate pre-order incentive known as “The Executive Package.” Players who pre-buy this game will get the full Donald Trump treatment including “solid gold versions of all loadout guns, golden dart vision, and the executive gold Syndicate logos during co-op missions.”
