007 Legends Announced


You know, you can't have a movie without someone developing a piss-poor bargain bin movie tie-in game. Oh, and Activision sends along word that they are releasing a new game titled, 007 Legends.

Quote:
To celebrate the James Bond franchise's 50th anniversary, Activision Publishing, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard, Inc., will launch gamers back through time to relive a selection of Bond's most iconic and intense undercover missions from the popular Bond film franchise with 007 Legends.

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! As with the feature films, 007 Legends equips players with state-of-the-art spy gadgets, an arsenal of weapons, including Bond's signature Walther PPK, and sleek vehicles as they jet off to exotic locations and utilize Bond's quick wits, class and style to take down notorious villains and their brutal henchmen, perform impressive stunts, and of course...mingle with gorgeous Bond women.

In addition to 007 Legends' main story, the game will feature the return of fan-favorite single-player Mi6 Ops Missions, which debuted in GoldenEye 007: Reloaded and challenges players to complete extra missions ranging from all-out action to stealth and gadget-based gameplay and compete for the highest online leader board scores. For the first time ever, players will be able to participate as one of Bond's cohorts or villainous foes, reliving the missions through their eyes, as well as 007's. The robust James Bond multiplayer experience includes local four-player split-screen game modes and online competitive gameplay with new maps, weapons and characters derived from Bond's 50 year legacy. With more gadgets, deeper stealth and spy investigation gameplay, gamers will have every opportunity to truly feel like the world's favorite spy.

Planned to launch this fall, 007 Legends is being developed by Eurocom, under license from EON Productions Ltd. and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios, Inc. (MGM) for the Xbox 360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation 3 computer entertainment system.

I'm not going to hold my breath, but at least they sound like they're trying to break the mold a little instead of churning out another by-the-numbers Bond game.

I think ATVI's track record for Bond games is to assign them the C team and hope the title sells on name alone. Eurocom certainly fits that bill. They have done mostly console ports and C or D quality titles.

With that company behind this title, I can't see it as having any redeeming qualities what-so-ever.

It is a must buy right? I mean when a game based on a movie was bad? Or even a movie based on a game ... it is the perfect pair

What happened to the Bond game that Raven Software was working on? Did it get cancelled?

This is gonna be a steaming pile of shit.

"Play as the bad guys!" = Reskin the good guy

"ties in with classic bond films" = No need to get the art team involved. Levels are already designed

"classic MI6 mode included" = Couldn't come up with an original gameplay mode that was cheap to do. Reused an old, shitty one.

"Online leader boards!!!" = Wooooooooow! Leader boards? Man you guys are serious about making a great Bond game! I take back everything negative I have said.
