I’ve just been cleaning out the ‘worst kept secrets’ filing cabinet at TSA towers: Starhawk and Hitman have been removed, which is fortunate, as we’re going to need the space for Syndicate.
Rumours of a remake of the classic Amiga title have been surfacing since 2009 when a devilishy handsome TSA reader sent in a tip. Developers Starbreeze are attached to the project (probably why they are not working on The Darkness II) and Siliconera have uncovered the script for a portion of the game.
To avoid spoilers we won’t be publishing the script but the story seems close to that of the original game. Set in the near future a chip called ‘Dart’ can be used to alter memories. Two companies, EuroCorp and Gulf, are fighting over uranium prices and a resistance group that includes a hacker called ‘Logos’ are fighting the big corporations.
The script seems to indicate that you start the game – in a cutscene at least – as a child called Miles.
