Next Bond video game will highlight 6 films

Activision's '007: Legends' set to bow this fall

As the James Bond franchise celebrates its 50th anniversary this year, Activision Blizzard announced “007: Legends” as its latest game in the spy franchise.

Game developer Eurocom, behind the “GoldenEye 007: Reloaded” remake, is developing the game. Title bows this fall.

“007: Legends” will pay tribute to Bond’s past adventures with a new storyline that takes players through six films. Activision declined to disclose which films those would be, although the upcoming actioner “Skyfall” — Daniel Craig’s third outing as the character — will be one. Film bows Nov. 9.

“To honor 50 years of the world’s top secret agent, ‘007: Legends’ offers a collection of his most famed moments,” said David Oxford, exec VP at Activision Publishing. “Creating a videogame storyline that ties together six popular, yet very different, Bond movie narratives can be challenging, but together with EON Prods., our developer Eurocom has pulled it off.”

In addition to the main story mode, “Legends” will enable fans to play as villains, and offer online play, as well as MI6 Ops Missions made popular in “GoldenEye 007: Reloaded.”
