Activision Announces 007 Legends

by Jason ChestnutApril 18, 2012

Believe it or not, but the 50th Anniversary of the James Bond film franchise is upon us. And to celebrate, Activision announced today that a new Bond game is in development that revisits some of the super spy’s past adventures. 007 Legends connects six of the Bond films in one overarching storyline, quite possibly allowing players to relive many of Bond’s most iconic cinematic moments . Eurocom, developers behind the previous Bond title Goldeneye 007 for the Nintendo Wii (and its Xbox 360 and PS3 port Goldeneye 007: Reloaded), are at the helm on this ambitious new project.

“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,” said David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing, Inc.  “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.”

Will we see a reimagined "Moonraker" starring Daniel Craig? One can only hope...

Although no details have been released as far as exactly which six movies (with the exception of the soon to be released Skyfall) are going to get represented in the campaign, the official press release did go on to say that the Mi6 Ops Missions mode introduced in Goldeneye 007: Reloaded would be included, now featuring the option to play as villains as well as Bond himself. Multiplayer will also be included for both online as well as local split screen play. Undoubtedly all the hallmarks of the Bond movies and games (gadgets, guns and girls) will be in abundance. As a fan of the films myself, the idea of playing through many of my favorite films in the series is pretty exciting. No word on whether Daniel Craig’s likeness will be used for the entire compaign and if the films will get the reimagining that Goldeneye got in the Goldeneye 007 game. Although one can’t help but guess that’s probably going to be the case…especially since the game segways into the latest film, Skyfall. 007 Legends is currently in development for both Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 and is set to be released this fall.

    Make Sure You tell me all of the james bond movies you have see.

    My favorite is Casino royal
    Least favored is Quantum of solace (it is a very good movie, but did not have the james bond characteristics).
    And I also watched Die yet another day which was fairly entertaining besides for the aspect that science became science fiction. (diamond photo voltaic driven laser, wtf! )

  • Anne Felton

    After looking by way of itunes all James Bond videos are on itunes except:
    live and let die, for your eyes only, octopussy, A view to kill, license to kill,and tomorrow in no way dies.
    Is there any reason that these movies are not on itunes? They seem to be rather random, from various eras and different bonds, is there any explanation that this is so?
    Thanks for any answers.

    What is the chronological order of James Bond movies? I mean, not the order that the movies came out, but the order in which the story proceeds. I know that Casino Royale is the first part of the story, but comes after that and after that as well?

  • Brendan O

    I have amongst my collection:
    – X-men Legends 1
    – Super Smash Bros. Melee
    – James Bond 007 NightFire
    – Naruto: Clash of Ninja 2

    I’m thinking of getting X-men Legends 2: Rise of Apocalypse, or Harry Potter Goblet of Fire, or X-men Next Dimension, is it worth it? Any other good multiplayer games out there? I prefer co-op, fighting, strategy, RPG’ish, adventure games; I don’t like sports games that much….but I do like SOME racing games (I’ve played the BurnOut games, and must say it’s really good!)
    (P.S. I also like racing games such as the Need for Speed series, but not games like Grand Theft Auto…I think that game is just gay somehow, no offense though)
