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.
