Whenever there’s a new actor playing James Bond in a movie, fans of the international super spy react with either outrage or excitement. Well, now there’s a chance for everyone to be happy: a new Bond-based video game will allow gamers to fill the shoes of 007 themselves. 007 Legends features gameplay based on classic missions from the film series. A new trailer shows off one such mission, called On Her Majesty’s Secret Service. You can check it out after the break.
True love is hard to find but James Bond has finally found his equal in the beautiful Tracy di Vicenzo, the daughter of European crime syndicate head Marc-Ange Draco – Bond’s key contact for tracking down criminal mastermind Ernst Stavro Blofeld. After wooing Tracy and their ensuing whirlwind romance, they jet set off to the Swiss Alps as Bond pursues Blofeld. It’s here, in a picturesque Alpine setting, that gamers encounter an avalanche of action. Blofeld is aware of Bond’s undercover ruse and kidnaps Tracy, luring Bond into a rescue mission involving a fast-paced downhill ski chase and a confrontation in a high-flying cable car, which also uncovers Blofeld’s master plan to release a deadly virus in five of the world’s largest cities. With the help of Tracy’s father, players must infiltrate Blofeld’s private research facility in the Swiss Alps, thwart the release of the virus and save Tracy before it’s too late.
007 Legends is set to be released for PC, PS3, and 360 this October.
