Starbreeze takes piss at PC pirates, includes .nfo file with Syndicate

Friday, 24th February 2012 13:50 GMT By Johnny Cullen

As Starbreeze releases Syndicate on PC and home consoles today in Europe, one player has discovered its included an .nfo file in actual copies of the game.

In case you don’t know, .nfo files are typically found in games cracked and then put online by pirates. This time, the file found in Syndicate for PC was included by Starbreeze.

The file itself contains story information, contact details on getting a job at the studio, if there’s copy protection or not and two simple install notes:

  • 1) Insert disc
  • 2) Play ;)

Simple enough. Go do that: it’s out today on PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.

Thanks, RPS.

    Not sure you can take a piss at something! ;) Maybe in your Irish moon-language. :P Still, clever way of recruiting a h4ck3r!
