Classic 1990s Bullfrog game Syndicate is free on EA Origin now. It's "On the House", to use the giveaway lingo, as Theme Hospital - another Bullfrog classic - was a couple of weeks ago.
EA's decision to reboot the Syndicate with a first-person shooter was "the right choice", the gargantuan video game publisher has insisted.
EA has described Syndicate as a "really tough" shooter that will challenge hardcore gamers.
EA believes there is scope to remake the classic, strategic Syndicate from the early nineties.
Lionhead Studios boss and newly-crowned BAFTA Fellow Peter Molyneux has said he would be happy to offer EA 24 hours of his time to consult on a new entry in the Syndicate franchise.
The case for a Syndicate reboot is mounting following the emergence of new trademark filings by EA.
Swedish developer Starbreeze has been spotted trademarking the name Syndicate three times.
