GoldenEye 007: Reloaded – What We Know So Far

By   /   Jul 25, 2011


James Bond doesn’t have a habit of sticking to one place, whether he’s in a movie or a game. It isn’t too much a surprise that last year’s Wii exclusive title, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded, is coming in HD with a few different features on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Last year’s shooter was an update to the 1995 GoldenEye film, and Activision hired Bruce Feirstein, one of the original writers of the movie, to create the script for the game.

James Bond travels from Russia to Nigeria in the game while investigating a terrorist cell that has gained control of some top-secret satellite super weapon that has the capability to destroy cities from the space. Daniel Craig and Judi Dench were also enrolled to play out their roles as Bond and M.

Though their won’t be too much new apart from the more detailed textures and graphics, according to Activision every level in the game is getting a facelift. There are some new animations and audio as well, and a new engine. The game will also consist of a few more scripted sequences. We hope the engine really improves the AI, since the Wii version didn’t have enemies with adequate brains.

There is also a brand new mode, called the Mi6 Ops Mission, which is a type of challenge mode for those willing to test their espionage skills. The mode won’t have anything to do with the main storyline, but they will offer four different gameplay types. Assault missions will be more-or-less infiltration missions that are intense and quick.

Elimination will need players to kill all enemies in the given map with a specific time limitation. Stealth mode will require players to go across a map, picking locks and stealthily eliminating enemies. Wave Defense will require players to prevent a set of computer terminals from being hacked by a horde of enemies. There will also be multipliers and scores can be posted on a leaderboard.

GoldenEye 007: Reloaded also support PlayStation Move for those looking to use motion sensors. See it in stores this September.
