The pair take on the role of "cutthroat executives working for the biggest and most aggressive syndicate, EuroCorp," says EA, "in a near-future world ruled by three mega-corporations."

Dawson plays Lily Drawl, the rising star of EuroCorp. "With a shattered and conflicted psyche, Lily is torn between the demands of her corporate masters and the underground resistance to syndicate rule," reads the blurb.

"She knows that this balancing act can only last for so long before she falls, most likely, to her death."

Emmy Award-winning Brian Cox plays Jack Denham, while Michael Wincott (The Crow) voices Jules Merit in Syndicate.

"Both play significant roles at the top of EuroCorp's organization. Jack is the ruthless power behind the boardroom throne, while Jules is a highly regarded senior agent having led many successful operations against the Aspari corporation."

Rosario Dawson said of her role: "I'm amazed how videogames have become so deep in story, delivering fantastic worlds and memorable characters rivaling big Hollywood films.

"I was excited when EA approached me to play Lily Drawl in Syndicate. She's an interesting and strong female character. How cool is it to play the mastermind who designed the military chip inside the player's head!"

Mikael Nermark, CEO of Starbreeze Studios added: "Syndicate immerses players deep into a dystopian world of unscrupulous corporations and chip augmented enforcers.

"These agents are the weapons of this war for market dominance and we needed strong talent to represent these intense characters. We are honored to have worked with the incredible Rosario Dawson, Brian Cox and Michael Wincott to make this world come alive."

Syndicate's set to release on February 21 in North America and February 24 in Europe for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
