Nintendo 64 classic Goldeneye 007 is finally heading to modern consoles in a faithful recreation from Rare. Also back is the ridiculously fun split-screen local multiplayer, which I wasted most of my youth playing. Goldeneye 007 will be available through Xbox Game Pass for the Xbox Series X|S and the Xbox One. Those who happen to digitally own Rare Replay, the 2015 collection of Rare titles, will receive Goldeneye 007 as a free download. You can check out the announcement trailer above and read below for more details:
Today on Xbox Wire, Rare announced beloved Nintendo 64 classic GoldenEye 007 will be headed to Xbox Game Pass, allowing a new generation of players to experience the genre-defining stealth shooter for the first time. Faithfully recreated to preserve the action and excitement of the original, Xbox Game Pass members across Xbox Series X|S and Xbox One will be able to jump into the action. In addition, players who own a digital copy of Rare Replay – the 30-game compilation of classics from Rare released on Xbox One in 2015 – will be able to download and enjoy the game free of charge.
The classic campaign mode, transformative difficulty levels and havoc-inducing cheats will all make their return – as will the iconic split-screen local multiplayer mode, allowing up to four players to take to the couch in a battle of wits and skill. The original experience has been updated with improved control options (including dual analogue stick support), native 16:9 resolution up to 4K Ultra HD (where supported), a consistent refresh rate and a full complement of achievements to unlock.
