Electronic Arts is continuing its “On the House” free game promotional program and is now offering the classic 1990s Bullfrog game Syndicate for free (worth $4.99). It’s not clear for how long the game will be available for free, but the page state that the offer is available for a Limited Time Only. So it’s probably best to claim this free game as soon as possible.
The original Syndicate is an isometric, real-time, action strategy game developed by Bullfrog in 1993. It is Bullfrog’s masterpiece of a game in which you aren’t saving the world or protecting innocents. You just make sure that your employers get what they want. At your disposal are four cyborg agents, an impressive arsenal of weapons and gadgets, and a massive selection of cybernetic upgrades. You are free to unleash this power on a highly interactive map where you can blow up buildings, steal cars, light trees on fire, or just shoot stuff. Produced by Peter Molyneux himself, Syndicate is the essence of cyberpunk and, with its great music, stylized visuals, and mind-blowing atmosphere, it has earned its place among the best games of all time. Make sure to check out the game that secured Bullfrog’s place in game development hall of fame.
