Until now, all we’ve seen of EA and Starbreeze’s Syndicate reboot is a ten minute gameplay clip showing you, well, showing you gameplay. That’s all fine and good, but it’s no trailer. Trailers are there to create interest, drum up anticipation, show you stuff that you may or may not have seen while a monotone robotic voiceover narrates the game’s premise!

On top of giving you a trailer, EA thought it’d be a good idea to shoehorn a history lesson into it as well. As such, the first part of this trailer explains the Syndicate franchise while showing you what the original game from the nineties was like, “because knowledge is power!” Or something like that.

Anyhoo, give it a watch, fight off any misconception that they’re just following Deus Ex’s lead, and then tell me you’re not at least a little bit interested. I think it’s looking pretty damn good so far. Expect to get a second dose of cyberpunk FPS action towards the end of February 2012.
