Go get the original Syndicate strategy game for free!

EA's Syndicate was first released back in 1993, and it's grown in stature since and is now considered one of the classics of strategy gaming. You can pick up the original game today, right now, for free, via Origin.

What's the game about, you ask?

In the year 2096, the world is controlled by massive corporations. And as the executive of your very own Megacorp, it's up to you to recruit a team of four cyborg agents, gear them up with a huge arsenal of weapons and equipment, and control your squad in tactical, action-packed missions to sabotage the competition. Research new equipment and outfit your squad. Brainwash targets into joining your cause. Eliminate enemies by any means necessary. With a cyberpunk aesthetic and deep, tactical gameplay, Syndicate is an unforgettable classic.

This is the original game, produced by Peter Molyneux back when Bullfrog Productions was a going concern and not just a headstone in EA's back yard. This is a great chance to revisit something from your youth, or to try something to see what everyone has been talking about all these years. Enjoy!
