The original 1993 Bullfrog Syndicate game is to be available once again on Good Old Games.
It will be released for $5.99 (£3.89), GoG had previously had trouble getting the rights for the game, like so many other classics being caught up in confusion over ownership.

“Syndicate is an isometric real-time tactical game from Bullfrog Productions created in 1993. It is the first title in the Syndicate series. An expansion pack, Syndicate: American Revolt, and a sequel, Syndicate Wars, have also been released. The original game and expansion pack were re-released together in 1996 as Syndicate Plus.”
“The game puts the player in charge of a self-named corporation in a gritty near-future cyberpunk-style world. Up to four cyborg agents are sent on a series of deadly missions, which include assassinations, infiltration, theft and persuasion (using a device called a ‘persuadertron’ to capture individuals of importance — scientists, for example). The game’s objective is to establish world-wide dominance with the established syndicate, one territory at a time, while engaging and eliminating rival syndicates.”
