@JCho133 - Thanks! Syndicate is one of the games that we referenced when starting this project, asking ourselves "what would a game like that be like if it were designed today for this hardware?" I guess our answer wasn't too literal… more like "What would our fondest memories of Syndicate, filtered through 20 years of other experiences, be like if re-imagined today for this hardware?".
@Exact-Psience - Thanks.
@TheOutlander - I think that with a game like this, especially because we're focusing on the hardcore/premium thing, we really need to be talking with gamers early so that we're getting feedback and (hopefully) getting people excited about what we're making.
