This is going to be a game you play and realize it’s all nostalgia goggles. I wish this were part of Rare Replay as it should have always been part of.

Love Goldeneye. Stayed up late nights with its multi player as well with friends and family. Will definitely check it out. Being a console game, a lot of PC players won't give it the credit it deserves on how it influenced a lot of games but that's ok.

It’s finally happening. Rumors have been this game has been done and ready for a while. Supposedly the war has held back the release date too. I wonder where they’re planning to go with this. What if it’s good? What if we want more? Do they plan on DLC? Map packs? Skins? Will be interesting to see if this is a one and done or what updates will occur.

Exactly, be careful with what you wish, because this was amazing and fun 25 years ago ... but now ? Don't think is going to be anything more than a 10 min play.

Yep. As an owner of the original it does not hold up. Barely tolerable and for new players it will tarnish the fond image original fans have painted.

The context in which the game was released contributes greatly to its success. A platform starved for content, and on console there was barely any FPS competition. It had a big impact at the time because of these factors.

But the game will feel anachronistic. No jumping, no falling off of ledges where there is no barrier, projectiles and explosions that hit through walls, sluggish pace, odd aiming conventions, poor AI, simplistic objectives...

They are modernizing the controls, which I'm split on.

In one hand, it's going to feel really good and intuitive to play it like a traditional shooter

On the other, if the AI is the same the game will be a breeze with the updated controls even on hard lol

Still going to play it and hopefully this leads to a James Bond RPG I've always wanted

There’s been a PC version for a long time, though err on the legal side.

Switch having the definitive version is pretty odd. Imagine a scenario where Nintendo has online play while Xbox doesn’t… Like wut?!??

Somehow Nintendo is doing online play better than Microsoft by simply having it.

I would argue if it runs as poorly online as some of their other games it's probably better to not have it at all ;)

Considering it was mentioned in Nintendo's list of upcoming N64 Switch Online games, I'm assuming Switch is getting the og N64 rom with online play. Xbox is getting the 60fps Xbox Arcade version with no online play?

Insane how the Xbox version won’t have online play. Why? Who thought this made ANY sense at all? Let’s remake one of the biggest shooters of all time, put it on Game Pass, but no online multiplayer. What planet you from?

Wow I never thought that we would ever get a re-release of GoldenEye 007. And I'm actually surprised that the game is coming out on both the Nintendo Switch and the Xbox consoles.

@regnaston: Just wanted to update & inform you that Goldeneye is being added to Rare Replay digital copies at no charge! I own Rare Replay (its the only Xbox One exclusives I love the most) digital so this is a nice bonus treat as it won't cost me a dime!

GoldenEye 007 will be made available on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S as part of Xbox Game Pass. Additionally, players who own a digital copy of Rare Replay, the 30-game compilation of classics from the award-winning studio behind GoldenEye 007’s original release, will be able to download and enjoy the game free of charge.

It still has split-screen (and that's more important for any MP IMO) so I'm fine with this. I'd rather play this with my daughter and & nephews so this is a win on my part.

Seen from more than a few sites stating that if you own Rare Replay, it will be free as part of an update.

@navyguy21: Looking at Perfect Dark and TimeSplitters, I don't think modern controls would make the game that much easier.

Making online exclusive to the system with the worst online is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. And I can't see this game aging that well either.

This is the kind of games that need a full remake, not an easy cash grab remaster.

@davillain: That definitely happens with some games, but I played 007 Goldeneye for the first time about six or seven years ago on the N64 because I missed out on it as a kid, and I had a great time with it.

Microsoft confirmed the lack of online multiplayer mode on Xbox in a statement to The Verge, and it appears to be because the Xbox and Nintendo Switch versions are actually different. Nintendo appears to be using the original game, whereas Microsoft says it has made a “faithful recreation” of GoldenEye 007. There is no announced date for the GoldenEye 007 release just yet on either platforms.

I've got GamePass so I'm looking forward to playing this. I played it last year though on one of those very naughty emulator programs. 😏

It's not a remaster, it's a port. Nothing is being reworked. It's just the N64 game blown up to 4K and running at 60fps.

A remaster would touch up graphics or audio, which is not the case here.

Remake, or remaster?

Game has aged HORRIBLY, I have zero interest in a remaster.
