Some of our beloved games from consoles past have made their way on to the 360, but simply as mere Xbox Live Arcade ports, retaining their old graphics and former frustrations. GoldenEye 007: Reloaded
represents a new chapter, coming as a retail game with all new features.
Announced in a press release today, Activision unveiled GoldenEye 007: Reloaded
with a brand new engine, striking visuals, and smooth gameplay coming in at 60 frames per second.
Coupled with the brand new engine is a plethora of brand new features. The first is a brand new mode named "Mi6 Ops Missions." Gamers will venture through brand new, never-before-seen levels and complete Assault, Elimination, Stealth and Defence objectives. The levels presented in this mode are exclusive to this mode and not playable in the classic campaign.
Alongside the Mi6 Ops Missions is a necessary, fully stacked multiplayer mode. Gamers will be able to take on friends in sixteen-player online matches laced with brand new maps, characters, and modes. Do not fear, though, the classic, enjoyable, four-player split-screen mode has been retained and will be revamped and improved.
David Oxford, Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing, enthusiastically adds the following:
