No Online Pass for Syndicate

Here's a refreshing change of pace. Upcoming shooter Syndicate will not have an Online Pass, because EA Partners believes that the game is so good, and offers so much quality content, that people won't want to trade it in.

Speaking to Eurogamer, EA Partners boss Jeff Gamon revealed the publisher's desire for "everyone who owns a copy of the game to have access to the entire product."

He added, "Maybe another reason for not having the Online Pass is we were confident in the scope of the online game. There are nine maps. It's hard to say, but just to play through the maps once on normal is a good six, seven hours. To progress your character and upgrade a few weapons is a heap of content. That and the single-player campaign means hopefully we won't see much in the way of early second hand sales and rentals."

EA were one of the first publishers to introduce the Online Pass system, as a way of minimising the pre-owned market and maximising revenue.

"Under normal circumstances," said Gamon, "it would have had an online pass, but because it didn't have competitive multiplayer and because we wanted as many people as possible to be playing co-op, we got away with it."

Syndicate is out next month. Check out a new trailer for the game below.

Will take your word for it 'Shakes, I couldn't connect to anyone through the co-op but the intro vid had me wishing I had. Either way, will probaby give this a try, it's Starbreeze, and since they dealt out The Darkness, I'm an optimist for this one.

I played a few minutes of the co-op demo and then I pre-ordered it. I'm a fan of both Chronicles of Riddick: AoDA and The Darkness so I believe in Starbreeze. And I also liked the character movement and the feel of the guns so hey, should make for a pretty good shooter.

If I did ever preorder games (and I don't), then I'd have preordered this thing based on the demo.
