EA declassifies previously top secret information on its upcoming James Bond-inspired first-person shooter.
Electronic Arts has released the first official information on its upcoming James Bond-inspired first-person shooter, which we now know is titled GoldenEye: Rogue Agent. As has been hinted at previously, players will assume the role of a former MI6 agent turned villain in the game, and they will interact with villains from other James Bond movies as the game progresses.
Although it suggests links with the James Bond movie and Nintendo 64 game that carried the same name, GoldenEye is actually the name of the villain that players will control in the game. An aspiring "00" agent dismissed from MI6 for reckless brutality, GoldenEye earned his name when, after working as an enforcer for Auric Goldfinger in his war with Dr. No, he lost an eye and had it replaced with a gold-hued synthetic one. Players will purportedly have the option to upgrade and customize their character as they progress through the game, although no more specific details on that aspect of gameplay have been released at this time.
