It’s taken a bit longer than expected, but Daniel Craig will slip back into the quick wit and debonair dress of James Bond this November in the Sam Mendes-directed Skyfall. But he won’t be going it alone. In addition to the return of Q, Activision has some gadgeteering of their own in the works with the Eurocom-developed 007 Legends.
007 Legends will be available for the PS3 and Xbox 360 sometime this Fall. The game will tie together the stories from six classic Bond movies in an overarching plot that concludes with the events of 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,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing. “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.”
As you’d expect from a Bond, 007 Legends will include 4-player splitscreen play as well as an online multiplayer mode. The popular Mi6 Ops Missions mode (that was first featured in GoldenEye 007: Reloaded) will also make a return appearance in 007 Legends.
