Following the appearance of heavy rumours, and ahead of its supposed reveal at San Diego Comic Con this week, Activision has formally announced the existence of GoldenEye 007: Reloaded for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3, complete with PlayStation Move and Sharp Shooter support, new gameplay modes, increased multiplayer options and 60 frames per second ‘HD’ visuals.
These mentions of “new” gameplay modes and “increased” multiplayer options point to a confirmation that GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is a high definition port of the Wii first-person shooter, GoldenEye 007 (if the name didn’t clue you in right away).
GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is being built on a brand new engine and will run as smoothly as “today’s elite action games” (i.e. Call of Duty, and at 60 FPS). While a “legendary” story campaign will feature in Reloaded, this new title will include new ‘Mi6 Ops Missions,’ “new, distinct levels separate from the campaign that span the varied environments from the story and challenge players to complete different Assault, Elimination, Stealth and Defense objectives.”
Reloaded will also include four-player split-screen action, with sixteen-player online match modes also appearing with “more maps, weapons, characters and game modes than ever before.”
Executive Vice President at Activision Publishing, David Oxford enthused:
“We are beyond ecstatic to debut GoldenEye 007: Reloaded to the millions of fans who have been clamoring for it to arrive on Sony and Microsoft home consoles. And now with full PlayStation Move functionality, 007 fans all around the world can play the game in full HD in more ways than ever before.”
GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is due for release this ‘Fall’ (the last quarter of 2011) for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360. You can look over the debut screenshots for the game below, as well as glimpse the announcement trailer:
