Activision have announced the latest game in the James Bond series today, 007 Legends. The game’s release is intended to coincide with the fiftieth anniversary of the James Bond film franchise. 007 Legends is being developed by Eurocom, and Bond is back and more active than ever. Legends will feature six different Bond films, all of which will be tied together by a single over-arching narrative. Activision are keeping quiet about exactly which movies will be featured, but have revealed that the game’s final stages will feature elements from the upcoming film, Skyfall. Activision had this to say about the game:
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 utilise 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 single-player Mi6 Ops Missions, which debuted in last year’s GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. 007 Legends is set for release on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in late 2012.
