007 Legends Announced, Releasing This Fall
Under development over at Eurocom -the studio who brought us the reimaging of the classic Goldeneye title-, 007 Legends will debut later this year for the Xbox 360 and PS3, featuring a campaign tying together six classic Bond movies, concluding with the forthcoming Skyfall to really give fans an entirely unique game in the James Bond Universe.
As expected, players will be equipped with state-of-the-art spy gadgets, an arsenal of weapons, including Bond’s signature Walther PPK, and sleel vehicles as they jet off to exotic locations and utilize Bond’s quick wits, class and style to take down notorious villains and their brutal henchmen, perform impressive stunts, and of course…mingle with gorgeous Bond women.
“To honor 50 years of the world’s top secret agent, 007 Legends offers a collection of his most famed moments in the smartest and most treacherous Bond game yet,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing, Inc. “Creating a video game storyline that ties together six popular, yet very different, Bond movie narratives can be challenging, but together with EON Productions, our developer Eurocom, has pulled it off to create an homage that we think will be a unique and highly entertaining Bond video game.”
The Mi6 Ops will return from Goldeneye: Reloaded, providing players with more focused missions ranging from stealth to all out action, all tying into the worldwide leaderboards. You’ll also be able to play as classic Villans, reliving the missions through their eyes. Multiplayer both split screen and online will be available, offering up maps, weapons, and characters taken from Bond’s 50 year legacy.
Goldeneye definitely prooved that Eurocom know what they’re doing with the Bond license, and with the huge amount of set pieces and inspiration to draw from, 007 Legends could be another great shooter.
There’s currently no screenshots or other details at this time, but keep an eye on Activision’s website for the latest on all things James Bond.
