February is a big month for games, and EA's Syndicate is part of the reason why.

But with all that competition, you need ample evidence to convince you that this particular reboot is worthy of your hard-earned cash. That's why you should play the four-player co-op demo that's coming our way.

The demo will be available on the PlayStation Network and Xbox Live Marketplace for a limited time, starting January 31. This co-op sample will boast one of the nine missions in the game (all of them can be played with up to four players). The demo will have the Western Europe mission, where players will infiltrate Cayman Global with the goal of assassinating Colonel Enrico Gabron and stealing his technology blueprints. Remember, this is all about corporate espionage…and everyone knows how brutal that can get.

If you were too young or perhaps didn't care at the time, Syndicate is officially a "re-imagining" of the cult classic franchise from 1993. The new title will hit store shelves on February 21 in North America and three days later in Europe, and as an added bonus, the original isometric squad-based PC game will be available on GOG.com for $5.99 on February 19.

While I detest reboots that change everything about a game like this and X-COM, it is pretty nice that they'll be releasing the original as well.

There are few demos I've looked more forward to than this one. Going to be real exciting to see if it is as super slick as it looks in the videos.

was hoping they would release a demo see if its worth risking a import.
still cant believe this got banned, so funny i sent a letter to the OFLC requesting a explanation why this got banned but much more violent games like GOW3 were passed.
