EA issued a gameplay trailer for the upcoming Syndicate reboot today. The trailer shows us just what sort of mischief a chip-augmented Agent is capable of.

Syndicate depicts a future in which corporations reign supreme. They're unrestrained by governments so they can openly battle each other for control of the global markets. When a corporation needs to hurt a competitor, they call on their Agents.

Agents are armed with heavy weaponry, including flamethrowers, assault rifles, and miniguns. What sets them apart from an ordinary soldier are their augmentations, though. These augmentations give them superhuman abilities. At one point in the trailer, an Agent causes an enemy to shoot one of his companions and then himself.

Syndicate is being developed for the PS3, Xbox 360 and PC. It will arrive in February 2012.
