We first heard rumors about the possibility of a new James Bond game back at the beginning of this month, when reports began surfacing online stating that Activision had recently registered several domain names for GoldenEye Reloaded. Rumors suggested that the game would be a reworked, high-definition port of the 2010 Nintendo Wii / DS title.
It was also suggested that the game would be heading to the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. We can now tell you that the rumors were correct, as according to an article by Wesley Yin-Poole over at eurogamer.net, the publisher has now confirmed the new game as GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. Just as expected, the game will be launched on the Xbox 360 and PS3.
UK video game developer Eurocom is said to have created a brand new game engine to craft the upcoming GoldenEye 007: Reloaded game, which they began last year when they were working on the Nintendo Wii title. Not only does the new game come with a revamped AI and better graphics, it will also run at 60 frames a second as well.
The new game has also has standalone challenge missions — which are collectively called M16 Ops — added. According to Activision, the online leaderboard-fueled extra adds more than ten hours of gameplay to the game. Another feature that has been added is the Challenge Mission Designer, which enables players to apply modifiers to the online modes.
While we are on the subject of online play, it will have room for up to 16 players across 10 different maps. The game will also include split-screen multiplayer. GoldenEye 007: Reloaded comes with four different mission types: Elimination, Assault, Wave Defense and Stealth. Elimination is a time-based mission that tasks players with killing the enemies before the time runs out.
Assault on the other hand will see players having to attack a base. Stealth is similar to Elimination, but aimed at those who prefer quiet killing. As for Wave Defense, this mission has you racing against the clock to take down the enemies, while trying to capture control points on a map, according to another eurogamer.net article by Christopher Donlan.
As Christopher notes, the GoldenEye 007: Reloaded game also promises new weapons, new characters and brand new ways to customize your character. You can read his full preview here. Are you tempted to buy the GoldenEye 007: Reloaded game?
