After watching the last Syndicate trailer, I had to grudgingly admit that it did indeed channel some of the vibe of the original game. In this new video, Syndicate executive producer Ben O'Donnell walks us through the just-released 4-player co-op demo, detailing some of the features of the upcoming game's co-op modes.

"Breach apps" allow you to have all kinds of effects on enemies and friends alike, from persuading enemies to healing your teammates. "True to the legacy of the original," O'Donnell says, "everything is configurable." And then he talks about… weapon loadouts.

Okay, so weapon loadouts aren't exactly the first thing I think of when I think of the original Syndicate, but the game still looks pretty cool. Starting today, you can give it a run for yourself by downloading the free demo.
