While I owned pretty much every console there has been and my mum was far from a video game Nazi I never had a N64 and had to watch on in awe as my mates all played Golden Eye 64. Anyway fast forward 15 odd years and they have all given away their gaming habits in exchange for whatever they do leaving me to finally enjoy GoldenEye in HD on my Xbox360 or PS3. How is this so you say, well albeit it a little late news, Activision have announced that Bond will be back, complete with a new games engine to grace our presence for the first time ever on the latest generation of consoles. Named Goldeneye 007: Reloaded, the title will feature “blistering fast gameplay”, combined with the ability to utilise the Playstation Moves sharp shooter peripheral for complete immersion.
“There is plenty of excitement from gamers and publishers alike about this title which was touted as being the best multiplayer game on the market back in the days of the N64 and its competitors. “We are beyond ecstatic to debut Goldeneye 007: Reloaded to the millions of fans who have been clamouring for it to arrive on Sony and Microsoft Home consoles says David Oxford. The executive VP of Activision publishing goes on to add how the moves capabilities greatly enhance the ps3 version.
Specifically on the PS3 version, “Promising to be one of the most immersive and interactive Bond games to date, this is an outstanding opportunity for Playstation fans to experience once of the most iconic and action packed shooters in an all new way with PSMove and sharp shooter attachment. It seems to be a big selling point for the PS3 title so let’s hope the Move performs as well within this game as it’s purported to.
Within the launch statement Activision revealed a few facts and specs of the game to whet our appetites and keep us interested
GoldenEye 007 Reloaded will feature realistic environments and whiz along at 60fps, pretty much in the same vein as most other elite FPS and action titles. As well as the Story campaign the game features the Mi6 Ops missions which are brand new levels never seen before. Set in the same environments players have to finish varied defense, assault, elimination and stealth missions.
Responsible for redefining multi player games on the N64, GoldenEye 007 Reloaded continues the trend, keeping the famous 4 player split screen and adding up to 16 player online matches with more maps, weapons characters and game modes than seen in any previous titles within the franchise. GoldenEye arrives in stores this Spring and is being developed by Eurocom under license from EON and MGM. Keep a look out for more information.
