New James Bond Game Revealed With Debut Trailer
We had heard the title before, but we never had any official confirmation or details.
But now, Activision has officially announced James Bond 007: Blood Stone, an entirely original Bond adventure from screenwriter Bruce Feirstein. Currently in development for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC, the game features a third-person action experience that will include all sorts of gameplay elements in a variety of exotic locales. Said David Pokress, Activision Publishing Head of Marketing for Licensed Properties:
"James Bond 007: Blood Stone captures the cinematic intensity of a Bond film by immersing players in an intriguing conspiracy that will require them to think and act like James Bond. In addition, the game will feature a diverse array of multi-player modes and debut strategic objective-based gameplay that will allow Xbox 360, PS3 and PC players to battle as teams of spies and mercenaries through authentic Bond locales."
Both Daniel Craig and Judy Dench will be lending their voices to the game and of course, every Bond production needs a girl; for Blood Stone, it's fittingly another "stone:" Joss Stone. Cover-based firefights, lethal hand-to-hand, driving mechanics, high-tech gadgetry and weapons, environments ranging from Athens to Istanbul to Monaco to Bangkok...it's all here.
We'll also get a 16-player online multiplayer mode and for the record, the game is being developed by Bizarre Creations, a racing veteran who has brought you Blur and the Project Gotham series. Blood Stone has a good shot of being decent, if only because it isn't based on any one particular movie. Transformers: War for Cybertron wasn't, either, and that turned out really well. So here's hoping!
