So, there's a new Syndicate game. Still not quite sure what to think about that. Anyway, here are the first official screenshots from the title.

EA just sent through a press release confirming the game's existence, as well as all the information contained in the leaked info we posted over the weekend.


Tiny versions of some of these screens were included in that leak, but here they are in a size where you can actually see what's going on.

"Our goal with Syndicate is to provide a challenging action shooter for today's gamers as well as fans of the original. I'm sure they will enjoy and recognize the legacy that made it such a classic," EA's Jeff Gamon says in the press release. "Fans of the franchise will recognize many weapons and environments in the game, but in a whole new way. The game also provides a separate and deep 4-player co-op mode featuring missions from the original cult classic, which adds another layer of depth to the overall experience."

It's coming for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360, and is expected sometime in "early 2012".
