Following the dramatic success of GoldenEye 007 on the Nintendo 64 back in 1997, the James Bond video game franchise has experienced an extended rough patch with only rare positive results -- such as 2009's GoldenEye 007 reboot on Wii, which hit Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 last year as GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. Now, with a brand new Bond flick due out this fall (Skyfall), Activision has announced plans to release 007 Legends, a new game that ties together several existing Bond storylines within a single adventure.
Developed by Eurocom, the studio behind the GoldenEye revival, 007 Legends promises to deliver shooting thrills, vehicle sequences, and surely plenty of double entendres, all while hitting familiar missions from five unspecified past films and finally digging into the storyline from Skyfall. In addition to the campaign, 007 Legends will include separate single-player Mi6 Ops Missions, which offer leaderboard-ranked challenges with unique themes. And multiplayer returns in both four-player split-screen and online competitive flavors, as expected.
Screenshots have not yet been released, but don't be surprised if it looks a lot like last year's GoldenEye 007: Reloaded (pictured above) -- which, in turn, looked quite a bit like recent Call of Duty entries. 007 Legends is slated to debut sometime this fall on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
