De­vel­oper SMAC Pub­lisher Mode 7 For­mat PC Ori­gin UK Re­lease 2017

Frozen Sy­napse’s de­vel­oper turns pub­lisher for this stylish cy­ber­punk ac­tion game set in a futuristic Ja­pan. It’s as vi­brant as it is vi­o­lent, with an iso­met­ric per­spec­tive rem­i­nis­cent of a more colour­ful take on Bull­frog’s orig­i­nal Syn­di­cate. Here, though, you’re in di­rect con­trol of a lone as­sas­sin, sneak­ing, leap­ing and shoot­ing your way through a large open world as you try to un­cover a con­spir­acy. The sprawl, mean­while, is stripped back for the game’s com­pet­i­tive mul­ti­player mode, which takes place on small, densely pop­u­lated maps. Packed with dis­guises, se­crets and ath­letic gun­play, this could be one of 2017’s most daz­zling de­buts.
