New 007 Legends Title Takes You Back to Bond’s Older Missions
Activision announced today that it’s working on a new James Bond game that’ll tie in with the franchise’s 50th anniversary, taking players back to some older Bond missions in 007 Legends.
Here’s a quote from Activision’s press release:
A first-of-its-kind Bond video game, 007 Legends features an original, overarching storyline tying together six classic Bond movies, concluding with this year’s highly-anticipated 23rd installment – SKYFALL – to offer the most diverse Bond gaming experience yet!
So that’s interesting. Even more so is the fact that Activision has failed to mention exactly which Bond missions the game will actually cover, but the impression I’m getting is that players will be bouncing around between movies over time. Unfortunately, there are very few details beyond boilerplate statements about things like gadgets and gorgeous women.
We do know that 007 Legends will see the return of Mi6 Missions, a mode that made its debut in Goldeneye 007: Reloaded last year. You’ll also be able to play those missions either as an ally of Bond or one of his various nemeses, and each mission will play differently based on the perspective from which you’re experiencing it.
There will also be online and four-player split-screen multiplayer modes with characters and maps that’ll cover all 50 years of Bond lore. Eurocom is developing the game, and it’s heading to Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 this fall. No word on whether there will be a PC release.
