Strategic Cyberpunk Action


Satellite Reign is a real-time, class-based strategy game, set in an open-world cyberpunk city. You command a group of 4 agents through rain-soaked, neon-lit streets, where the law is the will of mega-corporations. Use your agents to sneak, shoot, steal, and sabotage your way up the corporate ladder, and take control of the most powerful monopoly of all time.
Each of your agents can be tailored toward your favoured play-style, while still maintaining their own unique specialisations. Shape your team into an offensive war machine, or an elite covert spec-ops outfit, and take the open-world city as your own.

Open World

The city of Satellite Reign is one big, open playground. No individual levels to pick between, the whole world can be explored seamlessly. Uncover new missions while you explore, and pick and choose which objectives you want to tackle.

Customise your Team

Each of your four agents can be tailored to suit your play style. Choose their skills, weapons, gear, augmentations, and even their genetic base by cloning exceptional individuals from the general population.

Multiple Strategies

There's no 'right-way' to complete your objectives. The world has been designed to facilitate emergent gameplay, allowing you to choose from and combine a wide range of strategic options. Sneak in through ventilation shafts, hack doors, take out power generators, hijack the minds of guards, or just blow the front door down. Countless opportunities await.

  • This is cyberpunk! An ugly-beautiful dystopia dripping with atmosphere. Emergent game play and the freedom to play how you want make Satellite Reign not only a worthy successor to Syndicate, but in many ways the superior game.

  • If you remember the original Syndicate games, then I should imagine that purchasing Satellite Reign would be a no-brainer, but even for newcomers to the series such as myself, this is a highly recommended purchase.

  • Satellite Reign keeps intact what we loved most of Syndicate and builds upon it its own thing, a refined, challenging, open world strategy game in a filthy and unforgiving cyberpunk metropolis.

  • The worst you can do when talking about Satellite Reign is to measure its value with the original Syndicate. That said, 5 Lives created an intriguing and strong RTS, with some unique features and some great homages to the original by Bullfrog.

  • No matter the bland and "I've seen this dozens of time" story, Satellite Reign is definitely Syndicate v2.0. Improved and enriched in every aspect, it’s a must have in your Steam library.

  • Satellite Reign is a must-have for those of you who fondly remember the original Syndicate. For those of you looking for a real time tactical Cyberpunk title where you control four agents on the field of battle wielding all manner of awesome, then this is really worth a look.

  • Satellite Reign is an incredible successor to Syndicate that gets more right than not. Where it falls down on bugs and control issues, it shines brightly in aesthetics and fantastic combat mechanics.

  • This is a gripping tactical thriller. Some AI behavior destroys the illusion occasionally, while the mission design is not varied enough. But nonetheless I enjoyed the challenges presented by the unofficial sequel to Syndicate top to bottom.

  • A well-done revival of Syndicate for real-time strategists with strong nerves. Brains and coordination triumph over fast clicking.

  • An overall well done tactical cyberpunk-RTS, that is bringing back the spirit of the 1993 released Syndicate by Bullfrog. The atmosphere is great, reminding us to Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner. You’ve got the opportunity to play various styles with your 4 agents, each of them equipped with special skills, weapons and augmentations. The world is filled with missions and gear to collect. The difficulty can be very hard sometimes, there is no way to pause the game or save during a mission. Some minor bugs have to be noticed, especially with lacking AI and pathfinding.

  • Satellite Reign offers a very solid set of mechanics and the four specialists are clearly designed to allow players to approach almost all situations in a variety of ways, able to create big gun battles or to always move without altering anyone to their presence.

  • Satellite Reign is a very good game with a few minor issues. You simply have to like the freedom to guide your agents, the variety of ways to complete a task, a big, pretty city and an excellent cyber-punk atmosphere. Satellite Reign is respectful towards the legendary Syndicate - it's faithful to the original game but applies lots of news solutions.

  • A fantastic sandbox for experimentation, yet this framework is not backed up by a rich environment.

  • Syndicate would be proud. Satellite Reign is a worthy 'spiritual successor' of this classic strategy game. Main advantages: freedom in gameplay and great atmosphere.

  • Having devoted so much time and effort to gameplay mechanics and style, 5 Lives Studios almost ignored the narrative matters, but the game is fun even without a coherent story.

  • With an emphasis on stealth and manouevering, Satellite Reign is a thrilling real-time strategy game set in a gorgeous cyberpunk city. While the game's firefights leave a lot to be desired, the stealth mechanics remain varied and exciting throughout the experience.

  • But for all it’s faults, Satellite Reign might still be worth exploring as a mechanical experience if you can handle some rough edges and make your own narrative.

  • If you’ve been looking for the next great cyberpunk RPG with some added flair, look no further than Satellite Reign.

  • Syndicate’s amoral corporate violence meets a more lenient version of Commandos’ ability-centric squad tactics, in this on-point cyberpunk sandbox.

  • A perfectly executed heist offers an incredible sense of achievement. [Issue#166, p.95]

  • Syndicate fans have here a great tribute to the classic franchise, with its own personality and a solid experience we've enjoyed from the beginning to the end.

  • Rough edges like that are a small price to pay when Satellite Reign does Syndicate better than Syndicate ever did.

  • A great game and a true spiritual successor of Syndicate Wars, which makes you think how come aren’t there more titles like this one out there. With a lot of freedom of action and progression, it could be a bit repetitive on occasion, but you can always face situations in multiple ways.

  • Satellite Reign is an amazingly detailed game in cyberpunk setting. Sometimes it gets a bit too chaotic and the story is not as memorable, but the feel of the game and the moving gameplay are extraordinary good.

  • Satisfyingly freeform missions and rich systems to play with, set in one of the prettiest cyberpunk cities on PC.

  • Satellite reign can proudly carry the title of the Syndicates series’ “spiritual successor”. It manages to retain all those elements that made the series lovable while at the same time modernizing all its aspects in order to be enjoyable. It’s too bad that repeatability shows up very early in the game.

  • Fans of the original Syndicate, this is for you. The narrative side is really weak, but gameplay wise it's a great strategic experience.

  • Satellite Reign is an interesting cyberpunk RPG that tries to create an open world but fails at making it a cohesive and credible one. Missions are interesting and, above all, the stealth action is quite superb. A mixed bag that needs to be evaluated before purchase.

  • Game World Navigator Magazine

    Just like tactical classics of Commando series, you have to take down enemies one by one, dodging patrols and security cameras. Or you can go in guns blazing – might work out too, though enemy has no concept of fair fight, bringing in as much guns as they can muster. [Issue#201, p.70]

  • Satellite Reign offers a great real time strategy experience in a cyberpunk world, but doesn’t keep the experience as fresh as it could have been.

  • When Satellite Reign is on and all the parts decide they want to work together, it is a blast. Infiltrating a base without setting off any alarms and stealing new guns and money from under the enemy's nose is tense and satisfying, and you have to be willing to take risks to succeed. I just wish you didn't have to slog through the uninviting early hours and the game's regularly busted AI to find those thrills.

  • Although it was hoped by many it’s not Syndicate with modern visuals. It is a great piece with atmosphere, quite good stealth-tactical strategy and lousy shooter. If you are forgiving, you could have some fun.

  • LEVEL (Czech Republic)

    More than a Syndicate, Satellite Reign reminds a budget version of cyberpunk Commandos. Overall incompleteness and considerable uncertainty over what the game wants to be, prevent gamers from enjoying it more. [Issue#256]

  • Getting through Satellite Reign can be a painful and slow process until you can amass enough tech, skill and firepower to repel waves of soldiers. It wants to be a game that gives you different choices, but the stealth gameplay wears thin so quickly that the game just gets boring.

  • CD-Action

    It could’ve been a really good game, but the developers stumbled on the basics. Terrible interface, awful beginning of the campaign and mediocre AI take most of the fun out of Satellite Reign. [12/2015, p.46]

  • Edge Magazine

    No characters stand out to give the game verve, and Dracogenics does nothing to inspire efforts to take it down. [Oct 2015, p.118]
