James Bond doesn’t need a parachute, as he’ll show you in this trailer for GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, which launches this Tuesday, November 1, for the PS3 and Xbox 360. I am loving the remix of the classic Bond music, as well as Daniel Craig’s sexy voice. Keep it coming, Activision.
November is here, and with it, the Fall gaming rush goes into overdrive.
This week sees the release of the PS3-exclusive Uncharted 3: Drake’s Deception, Naughty Dog’s latest Nathan Drake adventure promises to be its biggest yet. In fact, it’s so big, it’s off the charts (rimshot).
The rest of this week’s new releases are a throwback to a simpler time including…
Activision has announced that James Bond will return on November 1. The superspy’s greatest video game adventure will be coming to the PS3 and Xbox 360 as GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, complete with an HD coat of paint courtesy of developer Eurocom.
PS3 players will be able to take the James Bond experience further with the exclusive Double 0 Edition, which was also announced by Activision today. The Double 0 Edition will include a copy of the game, PlayStation Move motion and navigation controllers, a PlayStation Eye camera and the Sharp Shooter peripheral. The package will also include a bonus downloadable character, Hugo Drax. And yes, the supervillain behind 1979′s Moonraker will be packing a Moonraker Laser.
“Working closely with Sony, we’ve created a great bundle that arms fans with all the vital secret agent equipment right off the shelf,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing. “We can’t wait for gamers to pick up the PlayStation Move and Sharp Shooter to experience a James Bond video game like never before.”
Activision and Eurocom are putting the finishing touches on their high definition re-remake of GoldenEye 007. Scheduled for release this Fall, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is not only getting a shiny new coat of paint, but a mission-based multiplayer mode known as MI6 Ops as well.
MI6 Ops consists of four types: Download Defense (007′s version of Horde mode), Assault (get to the checkpoint alive), Elimination (kill all the enemies before time runs out) and Stealth (kill without being seen).
Check out all the gamtypes in the new MI6 Ops trailer above. You’ll be shaken and stirred.
We first saw the leaked screenshots for an HD edition of GoldenEye 007 yesterday and they were pretty impressive. Today, Activision has officially announced GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, an HD remake of last year’s GoldenEye 007 remake on the Wii. They’ve also released the first trailer for the game, which you can view above.
Once again developed by Eurocom, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded will be available on the PS3 and Xbox 360 this Fall. The re-remake is being built with an all-new engine and will include PlayStation Move support.
Reloaded will add several new features that weren’t found on last year’s Wii game including “Mi6 Ops Missions,” a challenge mode that asks players to complete different Assault, Elimination, Stealth and Defense objectives.
But what about the multiplayer? Well, Activision has promised to include four-player splitscreen and plans to double the number of online players (from 8 to 16). The multiplayer mode will also include “more maps, weapons, characters and game modes than ever before.”
Activision hinted at it, then they registered it, then they suggested they may be bringing it to Comic-Con. Now it seems more likely: last year’s GoldenEye 007 for the Wii is probably coming to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 (and maybe PC) as GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. Gaming Everything stumbled on a series of screenshots, one of which you see left, depicting a high definition port of last year’s remake of the legendary GoldenEye 64. Head on over for a nice set of juicy images that you’re not supposed to see.
The game’s looking pretty good and will most likely be out by the end of this year. I haven’t gotten a chance to check out the Wii version, but I imagine it’ll be pretty awkward to play a reimagining of one of Nintendo’s most celebrated titles on my PS3.
