James Bond returns October 16

New trailer for 007 Legends reveals new superspy shooter to arrive one month ahead of film Skyfall; Moonraker mission shown in video.

James Bond will return to consoles this October. The latest trailer for 007 Legends (embedded below) reveals the Eurocom-developed superspy shooter will arrive for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 on October 16, one month before the 23rd Bond film Skyfall hits theaters.

007 Legends will debut a month before Skyfall. Spoilers!?

As revealed last month, the game will feature missions from November's Skyfall, as well as five other Bond flicks. The new trailer for the game reveals one of these new missions, a sequence set during 1979's Roger Moore-fronted Moonraker. The video shows Bond fighting through a space station and offers a glimpse at the nefarious assassin Jaws. The remaining missions will be revealed at a later date.

On top of its campaign, 007 Legends features the single-player Mi6 Ops Missions mode, which made its debut in last year's GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. Additionally, the new game sports a local four-player split-screen multiplayer mode, as well as a traditional online competitive option.

It appears we have another sad bond license cash-in for the CoD whippersnappers who were never exposed to the pure awesomeness of Golden-Eye on the Nintendo 64.

Everything Or Nothing was great. then it just went downhill after that.

They might as well call it Cod: Legends.

 

Goldeneye Reloaded was just another Cod clone with the BOND name on it. This will be the same. I cannot believe any of you are actually considering buying it.

 

Gamers today love their generic shooters dont they?

As long as Activison doesn't make the same mistake as they did with Guitar Hero and Call of Duty. This looks like it should be pretty solid.

I would hate to see Daniel Craig as Moonraker's Bond.

Longer single player and the good old 4 split screen just like the old days of N64, then count me in.

James bond games are usually rather solid too bad that they always seem to fail with staying up to date with their graphics.

This game is going to be great if they don't use Daniel Craig as James Bond

Why isn't this part of the Wii U line-up? Surely it would fare better then on a PS3 or Xbox 360. Especially the sniping.

Eurocom has done a good job of updating the gameplay of Bond shooters to bring them in line with this generation. The same cannot be said for the graphics.

As an old school Bond fan I am very excited for the new movie and to a lesser extent the game. I won't kid myself into believing that this game will live up to Nightfire or Goldeneye 64 but I will get it nonetheless. On a unrelated note Goldeneye 64 is still the best shooter hands down. Activision try not to put too much CoD rubbish into this game ok?

PLS ADD 2-4 ONLINE SPLITSCREEN. playing James bond online next to some buddies would be fantastic. Would buy the game in a heart-beat.Also, thank you for having 4 player local. More games need local options.

As long as it doesn't end up feeling like "Splinter Cell: Essentials"...

The movie looks good. The game looks even farther down the CoD lane than Goldeneye:Reloaded, but it looks fun. 6 missions though? Can't they do more than that? They have 20+ films to go through. Why not do one mission per movie? Bleh, too much work I guess.

They could make this game unbeliveable if the do it right GET BETTER SERVERS and dont forget about it when everyone buys it, BRING BACK THE OLD GOLDENEYE MAPS FOR DLC EVEN THE OLD FACILITY AND COMPLEX and this game will be a giant success....Dont release it close to the COD OR BATTLEFIELD games because it wont sell as much, they could only make this game so good if the put in more effort. GOLDENEYE 64 was for me the best game i have ever played it got me into FPS!!!!!!!!!!!!

I like how it says at the end ' Additionally, the new game sports a local four-player split-screen multiplayer mode, as well as a traditional online competitive option.' As if split screen is something new. Think back just a few years and all multiplayer was split screen... Or was it really that long ago?

There hasn't been a solid bond game since Goldeneye on the 64.

First thing I thought was: "Milking the cash cow..." I'm so NOT caring about another Bond game anymore. Who keeps buying these games and keeping the license in Activision's hands?

If in the Moonraker part you play as Roger Moore and not that bully of Daniel Craig Activision has my money.

007 Legends is a good idea but......I honestly wish someone else was making it and Activision wasn't publishing it......

Honestly though I bought Goldeneye 64 all those years ago because it was like the film but offered so much more but the remake didn't feel like it was trying to be part of the Bond franchise.....more like it felt like they wanted to pull Bond into the world of COD.....not the best fit if you ask me.

So yeah James Bond - Greatest Missions sounds like a great idea and if it stands as it's own game and has more stealth action and less 100% bodycount mentality I might give it a whirl but I'm not holding my breath.....

And yes I'm going to see the new Bond flick in theaters because I'm a fan of James Bond not so much the games based on the films......

Looks good but considering all the other games coming out around that time, I will happily overlook this.

I'll go see the film though - hope it's better than QoS.

Call of Bond: Agent Ops. (Bad pun is bad)

 

They should have some driving missions on these newer Bond games, like some of the older ones.

 

And if you're gonna have 4 player i would expect to see a mix of Unreal tourney weapon deployment and powerups, Gotham Impostors style of classes, gadgets and action, with a touch of nostalgic Goldeneye references which are used right.

 As much as we like the obligatory COD mention in every single article published... But keep on beating that Dead Horse I'm sure he'll get up sooner or later.

 @thereal-15-cent

 Exactly.  This game *MUST* be out a few weeks before the movie.  If they delay they might as well cancel.  So they play it super safe.

 You meant to say there has never ever been a good BOND game, besides 007 Everything Or Nothing.

 

The N64 Bond games were great FPS games, but they werent BOND games. Ive never played a FPS in my life & thought.... this is BOND. FPS simply does not make sense for Bond.

 

007 Everything Or Nothing was the last & only good BOND game to ever be created.

 I disagree the last bond game goldeneye reloaded was alot of fun.  did you play on classic difficulty? Fun times!

 More than that. They've already announced a Skyfall sequel... I wouldn't be surprised if they're still making Bond movies 30 years from now.

 @zzamaro with how crazy the multiplayer and campaigns of CoD are they'd work better as a bond game.

LimeDudeZ

 @thereal-15-cent The real Bonds are Rooger Moore and Pierce Brosnan because they were funny and they had badass gadgets. While the movies with Craig feel like Mission Impossible and they are much more violent than other Bind movies.

burnteyeball

 @RTHKI you know, I think your right. A bond game would be a perfect can candidate for a CoD like feel.

 @indicaX I know that James Bond started as a book character but we are talking about the movies. I don't understand what means "Brosnon was good but got stuck with the worst movies." because there were 4 movies with Brosnan and they were all claimed to be great. Moore was great because he was humoristic, but he did even a great job of keeping the rest of the movie serious. This are the Bonds of the big screen and not that bully of Craig.

 

PS: Sean Conery was also a great Bond, but even he had some fancy gadgets and a little bit of humor, that are missing in the Craig movies. This is why I can't wait to see them change actor.

 @LimeDudeZ

 Moore was a foppish spoof of who James Bond is. Brosnon was good but got stuck with the worst movies. The fact you didn't mention Connery when stating who the "Real Bonds" were makes your opinion less than worthless.

 

Craig is the only Bond who captures the Original James Bond from the books...You know where the character was created.

 @LimeDudeZ

 I think they were just trying to make each Bond different.  Craig is more of the realistic/mysterious type while Brosnan was more of the cool/over the top type. I think they should include all of the Bonds throughout history in the game.
