Welcome to the PS3 Demo of Syndicate, Coming to PSN Today

300°
116w ago - Today Co-Op Producer Andreas Gschwari has introduced the PS3 demo of Syndicate, which arrives on PlayStation Network today!

To quote: Syndicate, as you probably know by now, is an FPS set in the classic universe first established by Bullfrog in 1993.

We have taken all the great story elements from the original game - the setting, the mood, the agents and above all the chips - and transferred into a much faster-paced and visceral game. Syndicate is not just your average FPS, though.

We did this by creating a gameplay mechanic called "Breaching," which effectively simulates an agent using his embedded military-grade DART 6 chip to interact with other chips in the world - whether they are located inside objects or human beings.

But it's not all about the chips. No FPS can do without providing the player with an arsenal of bad-ass weapons, and we had access to some excellent examples to work with from the original games, fortified with some ideas of our own.

You will find the usual suspects like sniper rifles, assault rifles and pistols, although you shouldn't expect them to be anything like you are used to from contemporary shooters. Some of the upgrades you are able to get will transform these seemingly standard weapons...

"What is Trine 2?" you ask, only to suddenly be filled with a powerful rush of guilt at your lack of Trine-related knowledge. "We'll tell you," we reply unnecessarily, clearly prepared to offer that information with or without your consent.

Trine 2 is a three-player cooperative action-packed physics-based platformer set in a lush fantasy world of cornea-searing colorful and beauty.

Played from a side-scrolling 2D perspective (but breathtakingly rendered with polygons), gamers take control of one of three highly specialized characters – Pontius, the slow yet mighty knight; Zoya, the agile thief; or Amadeus, the crafty wizard - and guide them through puzzles and numerous foes.

In addition to a host of improvements, additions, and tweaks over the original Trine, this much-anticipated sequel introduces highly anticipated online multiplayer, letting friends...
