The internet has been abuzz lately over screens from a supposed HD console take on the classic Goldeneye 007 FPS. Actually, that would be another take on a remake of the classic shooter, but who’s keeping track? Today, Activision took the mystery out of the equation by officially announcing Goldeneye 007: Reloaded for PS3 and 360. This second re-imagining of Rare’s 1997 FPS is said to be built on a brand new engine and is being put together by developer Eurocom.
Activision boasts that Reloaded will be all snazzed up with prettier graphics, high-def resolutions, and a smooth 60 frames-per-second. Of course, we’ll have to wait to experience it in action to see how well that framerate holds up when **** goes down.
In addition to the visual overhaul, the game is also going to have new multiplayer features and a brand new mode. A new set of objective-based challenges (Assault, Elimination, Stealth and Defense) known collectively as “Mi6 Ops Missions” is being introduced for the first time. Additionally, online matches will support 16 players and have some new weapons, modes, maps, and characters tossed in for good measure.
Last, and possibly least, the game will feature PlayStation Move and Sharpshooter support for those who care about that sort of thing (read: Sony employees). Goldeneye 007: Reloaded is expected to release at an undetermined date during the fall of this year.
