“No, Mr. Bond. I expect you to die.” Aside from how James likes his martini, this may be the most famous line in 007 history and now thanks to 007 Legends, we will be seeing it in all its gaming glory from Bond’s perspective. Activision has finally announced that the final movie tied in to 007 Legends story will be Goldfinger.
Not only will Goldfinger make his way to the game and give the player a chance to live through the infamous “laser slowing moving up towards Bond’s crotch” scene, but Odd Job will find his way to the game too. And from the looks of the trailer below, both will have a pretty hefty roles in the game’s mission.
For those who have not been following the progress of 007 Legends, the story of the game will crossover six 007 titles starting with Moonraker and make its way through Her Majesty’s Secret Service, License to Kill, Die Another Day and Goldfinger before concluding with the upcoming film Skyfall. Interestingly enough, the Skyfall mission will reportedly not be on the game disc itself but instead be a free piece of DLC so people without XBox Live or a PlayStation Network account watch out. The reason for this is that the game will be released on October 16th, which is weeks before the film’s November 9th release date. Keeping the mission on disc would risk massive spoilers for the feature film.
Stick to the Flickcast for news and an upcoming review on 007 Legends (and most likely the DLC review for Skyfall) which comes out on October 16th for XBox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC as well as a later date on the Wii U.
