Late last month we reported
that Activision had registered a host of URLs combining the words Goldeneye and Reloaded, and suggested it'd be likely this is related to a HD'ifying of Eurocom's former Wii exclusive reboot of GoldenEye 007 for Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network.
Turns out we were right and Activision do indeed intend to re-release the reboot for HD platforms, and aren't doing so lightly, either. According to reports, the game hasn't only received a facelift, but has been "reloaded" on an entirely new game-engine running at 60-fps and overhauled in the audio department, too.
GoldenEye 007: Reloaded is a contemporary James Bond experience featuring HD visuals and realistic environments running at 60-frames per second, akin to today’s elite action games. Additional to the legendary story campaign, the game introduces the brand 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 Defence objectives. GoldenEye 007: Reloaded also takes multiplayer to new heights, maintaining and improving its renowned four-player split-screen action and adding full, adrenaline-pumping 16-player online matches with more maps, weapons, characters and game modes than ever before.
Sounds tasty. Eurocom's re-imagining on Wii was a stellar effort, and should find a welcome place among shooter fans on Xbox 360 and PS3 with the above additions.
