Activision Blizzard has announced a new James Bond game: 007 Legends.
The game is being developed by Eurocom, who recently worked on GoldenEye 007: Reloaded and Disney Universe.
According to the press release, the game is attempting the rather ambitious feat of crafting an “original, overarching storyline tying together six classic Bond movies”, concluding with forthcoming Skyfall, the 23rd film in the franchise.
The game promises to equip players with “state-of-the-art spy gadgets, an arsenal of weapons, including Bond’s signature Walther PPK, and sleek vehicles” and take them to various exotic locations.
Aside from the main story, the game will also feature GoldenEye Reloaded’s popular Mi6 Ops Missions – extra missions that challenged players in a variety of ways, from stealth to gadget-based combat. And for the first time, you’ll be able to participate as one of Bond’s villains. It also boasts four-player split-screen.
007 Legends is expected to launch this autumn on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.
