GoldenEye 007: Reloaded trailer sneaks in
Game to run at 1080p, but only on PS3.
Regarded as one of the finest shooter and movie tie-in ever churned out by the video game industry, GoldenEye 007 for the N64 was a pioneer at its time, rolling the wheel for the modern first-person shooter genre that we know of today. The game was remade for the Wii last year, and it is now coming out on the PS3 and Xbox 360 as well. Activision today published the first look from the game, filling the nostalgia quota with an explosive, action-packed trailer.
The console re-make was announced yesterday at an London event for GoldenEye 007: Reloaded. At the event, producer James Steer confirmed that the game will at run 1080p, however only on the PS3 (Xbox 360 users will have to settle for 720p, it seems.)
Essentially a simple port, Steer promised the game has been “reloaded” in every way possible with a new engine “built from the ground up” specifically for the Xbox 360 and PS3 version of the game.
“Undoubtedly,” says Steer. “From a single-player point of view it’s the same story and the same locations, but there isn’t an area that we haven’t gone and upgraded or reloaded in some way.”
“From a geometry point of view there’s higher detail in the environments, more props, from a technology point there’s much higher detailed textures, animations, effects, sound effect, completely new AI built within this engine.”
“They’ve (Eurocom) worked on this engine through 2010. Not the whole of 2010 – but as it became clear that people want to see GoldenEye on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 we needed to develop a new engine. That can’t be done in a few months. But the game team was very focused on making sure GoldenEye Wii was the best game that we could make for that platform, while an engine team was working in the background on the technology.”
“They’re a great developer,” he added. “They’re very self-sufficient. They have their own motion capture studio, scanning equipment, tech team, tools team – they do everything themselves, but they kind of just get on with it.”
“They don’t want to publicise their engine, or get other people to use it – it’s about the games that they make.”
GoldenEye 007: Reloaded will release this autumn.
