Syndicate co-op demo infiltrates Xbox Live and PlayStation Network today

Wonder how Starbreeze Studios is handling Syndicate's multiplayer missions? Wonder no more, as EA has uploaded a demo of the spy game's 4-player co-op mode to Xbox LIVE Marketplace and PlayStation Network, with the latter version to arrive for PS3 players by the end of the day. Explaining the lack of PC demo, Starbreeze tweeted: “No PC Demo. Our team chose to focus its resources into making the game as great as it could be. We hope you see that on 2/21/12!”

Sorry. Guess you'll have to make do with this newly released trailer:

The Syndicate demo takes place in the title's "Western Europe" map. In it, players team up with other Wulf Western agents to break into Cayman Global, kill Colonel Enrico Gabron, and make off with his top-secret technology plans. Then again, you could always just ask the Colonel nicely, but we're guessing those super-soldier DART 6 chips don't come with a “peaceful negotiation” switch.

If you're an Xbox 360 owner and want to get a jump on the 723MB download, you can queue it up remotely here. You can also kill time by watching GR play through the producer demo, or by browsing our stash of screenshots.

Syndicate arrives in full for PS3, Xbox 360, and PC on February 21 in North America, and February 24 in the UK.

    The demo is so damn excellent, and @inkyspot , you can play quickmatches without your own friends

    So if you have no friends (that play vid games), you can't play this demo... oh well poor me.

    As much as I hate to admit this, that's one of the things that actually pushed me to preorder. :D

    “No PC Demo. Our team chose to focus its resources into making the game as great as it could be.” For who, console users? I hope what he means is that they are using the time to tweak/polish the PC version instead of creating a demo. Sadly, I don't think that is the case. Which is neither here nor there since I already pre ordered for the PC. (you can thank Hard Reset for getting me in the cyberpunk mood) Please don't suck Syndicate!
