Bond, James Bond, is no stranger to games. Some of you will no doubt be more familiar with Goldeneye on the N64, or it’s Reloaded reimagining from last year, while I’ve always felt that the best Bond game ever made had to be Everything or Nothing.
Still, her majestys number one secret agent still makes for some great material when it comes to video games, and with a new Bond movie on the way, under then name of Skyfall, you can bet your Aston Martin vanquish that a tie-in game is also on the way.
And you’d be right! So pay attention 00-readers, for 007 Legends.
Built around five key moments from various Bond films, as well as a scene from the upcoming Skyfall, 007 Legends is reportedly going to function as an homage to those cinematic moments, and while Activision isn’t too keen on revealing any details yet, executive VP David Oxford revealed that the missions will come from over fifty years worth of James Bond continuity.
Eurocom, who were responsible for Goldeneye Reloaded last year, are back on development duties, so it wouldn’t be too far-fetched to expect more first-person shooting from them. MI6 Ops Missions are also returning, so a decent round if multiplayer is no doubt on the cards.
They’ll probably also be stitching current Bond actor Daniel Craig’s weathered mug over Connery, Moore, Dalton, Lazenby and Brosnan. Ha, just kidding! As if anyone could outdo George Lazenby, the greatest Bond actor of all time!
007 Legends is currently scheduled for an American fall release, on Xbox 360 and PS3.
Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.
