The Skyfall mission included in 007 Legends will not be available for play until the movie itself arrives in North American theaters on November 9, Activision has announced.

It includes missions from Skyfall, as well as five other Bond flicks: Goldfinger, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Moonraker, License to Kill, and Die Another Day.

On top of a campagin, 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 multipayer mode, as well as a traditional online competitive option

Dont waste your time buying this game.There is no story to it whats so ever, just jumble peices.The game plays more like a war game than anything else. and the quick time events if you have big fingers . Trying to get A OR X BUTTON TO RESPOND IS A PAIN IN THE ASS. ITS time for actvion to give that game to someone else because they clearly have no idea 0f what a bond game is.The game should be in third person and not from a movie. . Bloodstone was a good game.Quantom of solace and EVERYTHING OR NOTHING was a good game. IF YOU CANT DO IT RIGHT,THEN DONT DO IT AT ALL. YOUR JUST WAISTING TIME AND MONEY.

Retards want to postpone skyfall mission unto 20th for PC and XBOX, when the game itself bombed bigtime... What a feckin' retarded game developer.

See, they talk about it being a free mission. An extra. It's the end of the game though, that they couldn't put on the disc because the movie wasn't out. If you trudge through the game now you just hit the end of the Moonraker mission and bam, end credits. That said, I got given a promo copy and I can barely force myself to play it through as it is - and it was free. I have no idea what happened at Eurocom; Goldeneye Reloaded may not have been a classic, but it was at least predictable fun - this just isn't.

...And rightly so, PS3 is the only worthy system!

The reasoning is actually quite simple: Sony distributes Bond films.  One can be certain of a Sony product placement or two in the forthcoming Skyfall film.  Makes sense Sony would offer PlayStation 3 exclusivity, albeit for a two-week window.

EA makes deals with Sony. Activision makes deals with Xbox.

 

Timed exclusive DLC is a bad way to go, the gamers basically get less games in lieu of timed content. Content that's coming anyways.

No no no this is too wrong!As if putting Craig's face instead of Brosnan's in the GE007 remake wasn't stupid enough, now he's replacing legends like Connery and Moore?!!!! OK feel free to accomodate Craig's fans (myself NOT included) in games based on his own films, but would you please at least have the decency to leave the classics to their righteous owners?

 @SolidTy Although this is an Activision game. While I am getting this on PS3 and I'm glad that I don't have to wait until a bit after the film comes out to play the Skyfall mission, I don't like timed exclusivity. It's great when it goes my way (i.e. PS3) but it's awful when with games like CoD or Fallout or whatever it can take at least a month for DLC to arrive, for no reason other than to promote a console. Still, at least it's not exclusive forever, and it's free.

 @Suikogaiden What? Daniel Craig doesn't have balls? He's tougher than all the previous Bonds.
