Activision to Launch 007 Legends This Fall
Posted on April 22, 2012
Activision has announced it will launch a new video game to coincide with the upcoming Skyfall movie. The new game, 007 Legends, will feature an original, overarching storyline tying together six classic Bond movies, concluding with this year's 23rd installment, Skyfall. Planned to launch this fall, 007 Legends is being developed by Eurocom, under license from EON Productions Ltd. and MGM for the Xbox 360 and PS3.
David Oxford, executive vice president at Activision Publishing says, "To honor 50 years of the world's top secret agent, 007 Legends offers a collection of his most famed moments in the smartest and most treacherous Bond game yet. Creating a video game storyline that ties together six popular, yet very different, Bond movie narratives can be challenging, but together with EON Productions, our developer Eurocom, has pulled it off to create an homage that we think will be a unique and highly entertaining Bond video game."
In addition to 007 Legends' main story, the game will feature the return of Mi6 Ops Missions, which debuted in GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. The game challenges players to complete extra missions ranging from all-out action to stealth and gadget-based gameplay. 007 Legends equips players with state-of-the-art spy gadgets, an arsenal of weapons, including Bond's signature Walther PPK, and sleek vehicles. Players will also be able to participate as one of Bond's cohorts or villainous foes. The 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.
