Celebrate 50 years of Bond this fall with 007 Legends

Activision has announced it’s celebrating the 50th anniversary of the James Bond franchise with 007 Legends, a selection of missions from the film franchise featuring an “original, overarching storyline tying together six classic Bond movies.”

There’s no word just yet on what missions will be included from the aforementioned films, but Legends will also contain missions from the 23rd Bond film, Skyfall, which is slated for a November release in theaters.

Players will use plenty of gadgets, weapons, and Bond’s signature Walther PPK in various, exotic locations filled with villains, henchmen, and ladies.

“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, EVP at Activision Publishing.

“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.”

Legends also marks the “return of fan-favorite single-player Mi6 Ops Missions,” which debuted in GoldenEye 007: Reloaded.

Players will be able to participate as one of Bond’s friends or foes, “reliving the missions through their eyes, as well as 007′s.” The multiplayer portion can be played locally through four-player split-screen and online with new maps, weapons and characters pulled from Bond’s 50 years in action.

Developed by Eurocom, 007 Legends is out in the fall for PS3 and Xbox 360.

    And the big question is, does all Bond’s are Daniel Craig? Because if that is the case it will be a big fuck off for Activision.

    I was wondering the same thing myself. If Craig will be the Bond in, oh, say a mission from Thunderball or Her Majesty’s Secret Service. I seriously doubt they would change Bond in the later at least, because I can’t see many wanting to play as George Lazenby.

    Can’t help but to think this will suck. They needed something to accompany Skyfall, so they came up with this.

    @1 Good point.
    I love Craig as Bond. Heck, he’s my fave along with Connery but I don’t want him to be in 22 different Bond games. That was already weird in the GoldenEye remake but for older Bond games? It would be MADNESS! Madness I tell ya!

    They should celebrate by releasing a HD version of Goldeneye N64 just like they did with Perfect Dark, not a stupid crappy remake.
