Celebrate 50 Years Of 007
Activision has unveiled the latest James Bond game, 007 Legends, for an Autumn release. This new shooter from Goldeneye Reloaded developer Eurocom aims to celebrate the series' 50th anniversary with a selection of missions from six different Bond movies, including new content from Skyfall.
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.
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. - David Oxford, Activision EVP
Players will have access to multiple films' worth of gadgets, vehicles and weaponry, including Bond's trusty Walther PPK, and encounter plenty of familiar henchmen to use them on.
In addition, 007 Legends will herald the return of the single-player Mi6 Ops Missions, which allow players to experience the story from multiple perspectives. Four-player splitscreen multiplayer has been confirmed, on top of an online multiplayer suite.
007 Legends has been slated for Autumn 2012 on PS3 and Xbox 360. Since Skyfall will release in November, we can expect it to tie in.
So, what classic Bond scenes would you like to see replicated in 007 Legends? We'd love to play the Thames boat chase from the opening scene of The World Is Not Enough, for the record.
