Golden Eye 007

Golden Eye 007 remaster has been in speculation for quite a while now. The fan-favorite James Bond game still lives in the hearts of fans even after more than 20 years since its launch. This is partly due to the fact we haven’t actually gotten a decent 007 game since then.

Earlier this year, achievements for Golden Eye 007 were unlocked on Xbox implying that the game’s launch is inevitable. Also, it was reported that it will be ported to the Nintendo Switch as well. For the fans who were waiting, rejoice as the game’s official announcement is here.

Golden Eye for Xbox and Switch

Finally, GoldenEye 007 will be available on Xbox and Nintendo Switch. GoldenEye 007 HD, a remastered version of the classic Nintendo 64 game, will soon be available on the Nintendo Switch and Xbox, according to a recent announcement at Nintendo Direct.

Perks of the Remaster

According to Rare, there will be certain changes to the game. Some of them are obvious including the graphics to fit in with the modern games. Others focus more on gameplay elements. Even a 4-player split-screen multiplayer mode is included in the game’s remastered version, along with 4K resolution and improved frame rates. The game will arrive on both Nintendo Online and Xbox Game Pass.

Following are some screenshots and details about the Golden Eye 007 remaster:

It’s been a while since an HD remake was supposed to debut on Xbox 360 in 2008. However, a deal to ever release it was hindered by licensing and rights difficulties. But last year some screenshots leaked which displayed the new elements of the game along with Xbox achievements which pretty much confirmed the remaster.

A couple of months ago Jeff Grubb stated that the game is in limbo and he wasn’t so sure about the future of the game. Well, fortunately, months later we have the official announcement.

We are really excited for the game’s port to modern consoles because James Bond really needed a modern-day great title. And here we have it. Let’s hope Rare has developed the game so it feels like the legendary 97′ version of the game but manages to look completely new at the same time.

Also, the game will support older Xbox generations and will launch on Xbox Series X and S along with Xbox One. For now, we don’t have a release date but stay tuned for that.
