Many expected the heavily rumored GoldenEye remaster to be announced during today’s Xbox showcase, but that wasn’t the case. James Bond fans weren’t entirely unlucky, however, as developer Replicate D6 released a new trailer for its GoldenEye-like title Agent 64 during the PC Gaming Show today.
The trailer shows more of the game, which is said to be a “retro homage to ’90s console shooters.” As you can see in the brand new trailer, Agent 64 clearly riffs on GoldenEye with its legally distinct but definitely similar music and game mechanics, weapon models and animations. The character models are also very similar in presentation to those of the legendary N64 game. Take a look for yourself:
Agent 64 also lets players create and share their own levels. The game is set to be released later in 2022, but a free Early Access demo is now available on Steam.
As for the rumored GoldenEye remaster, additional achievements for the unannounced title have recently been leaked. A remaster of the N64 title was apparently originally in the works for the Xbox 360 and has been the subject of many rumors ever since. Xbox boss Phil Spencer clarified that GoldenEye, which isn’t on Xbox, “was always a rights issue, not an issue of getting code to work.”
2022 marks the 60th anniversary of the James Bond series and it has already been announced that a host of property-related news will be coming this year, leading many to believe it could be announced soon.
Elsewhere in the world of James Bond games, IO Interactive, the developer behind the Hitman games, has been working on their own Bond game that will feature a “completely original story” for the world’s most famous super spy.
