Syndicate Free on Origin

Syndicate, the isometric real-time tactical game released by Bullfrog Productions in 1993, is currently free on Origin’s On The House.


In Syndicate, the player take the role of an executive director, and controls a team of four cyborg agents through a dystopian future where boardroom deals and company takeovers are rather different than they are today.  Tasks involve killing rival agents and persuading, escorting or assassinating key figures, and any collateral damage is well.. just to be expected.  Missions take on one territory at a time, with the aim of establishing world-wide dominance!

There was also an expansion pack, Syndicate: American Revolt, a sequel, Syndicate Wars, a 3D reboot also entitled Syndicate (1996), and a GOG re-release of the original game plus expansion pack, entitled Syndicate Plus (1996).

FreeSynd is an open source project based on the game.  The team’s aims are to create a multiplatform version of the game and remove some of the original bugs.
