Electronic Arts Inc. and Starbreeze Studios (The Chronicles of Riddick and The Darkness) today announced that celebrated actors Rosario Dawson (Sin City, Men in Black II) and Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity) will headline the Hollywood cast of Syndicate™, a re-imagining of EA's cult classic from 1993.
The stars take on the role of cut-throat executives working for the biggest and most aggressive syndicate, EuroCorp, in a near-future world ruled by three mega-corporations. Syndicate is a unique and brutal sci-fi first person shooter experience that blends fast-paced action and futuristic settings with an innovative game-play mechanic where players hack into and violently extract the mind-controlling chips embedded in people's brains.
"Syndicate immerses players deep into a dystopian world of unscrupulous corporations and chip augmented enforcers," said Mikael Nermark, CEO of Starbreeze Studios. "These agents are the weapons of this war for market dominance and we needed strong talent to represent these intense characters. We are honored to have worked with the incredible Rosario Dawson, Brian Cox and Michael Wincott to make this world come alive."
