Have You Syn Da Satellite Reign Footage Yet?

A corporation to love

Want first proper in-game, in-mission footage of spiritual Syndicate remake Satellite Reign? With agents and cars and civilians and cities and miniguns and all? Step right this way.

I think you're going to like what you see.

This is pre-alpha, so nothing is final and everything is subject to change. 'The UI, audio, weapons and effects are 100% placeholder' too. Even so...

Yes please. Please, yes.

Apparently this reveal was supposed to be far slighter than we ultimately got, so it's a nice surprise on both sides of the fence. "The video was actually meant to demonstrate the agents coats reacting to wind from the cars zooming by," say devs 5 Lives Studios, "but before we knew it we were showing crowds of civilians, CCTV cameras, cover usage, x ray camera mode and even a couple of enemies."

The cyberpunk style is dialled up a little - the colours and UI evokee fellow Kickstartee Shadowrun Returns to some degree - but movement, pace and gunplay seem highly Syndicatesque.

Man, I hope they pull this off.

Thanks for the tip, Kieron.
