On a Florida college, EA confirms two Bond games, the sequel to LOTR: Third Age, and a secret non-sports Tiburon title.
Seeking young talent for upcoming ventures in videogame development, Electronic Arts last week visited the University of Florida to show off upcoming games while making several stealthy announcements on unannounced and previously unconfirmed titles.
While providing an overview of their business and internship opportunities on Thursday, January 27, EA talked openly about the previously unconfirmed From Russia With Love, confirmed another James Bond game in development at EAs LA studio, an RPG sequel to Lord of the Rings: The Third Age, two new Sims 2 expansions, a new Command and Conquer RTS, and best yet, a non-sports game from football development studio, Tiburon.
Using an early build of From Russia With Love on a PC workstation, EA showed six scenes of the companys first revisionist Bond game. The first scene portrayed Sean Connery flying across the sky in a jetpack in small town set in the 1960s. After landing, Connery jumps into a sports car with a desirable girl and a car chase-scene ensues. The scene ends as Connerys driving antics knock down a water tower. The other scene showed Pierce Brosnan sneaking on a boat dock, firing and blowing up explosive crates, and then jettisoning the location in a hybrid boat/hovercraft.
