Over the weekend, Activision revealed the first classic Bond film which would be given a video-game update as a level in the upcoming Greatest Hits style game 007 Legends – and fans will be happy to hear that it will be Moonraker.
The 11th film in the Bond franchise, which was originally released in 1979, and starred Roger Moore as the martini-supping special agent – is the first of the six classic Bond film inspired missions revealed in the recently announced game. In the game, players will be transported to the well-known space port of billionaire industrialist, Hugo Drax, and must rely on stealth and determine if they’ll trust and align with questionable allies to infiltrate the orbiting evil lair and defeat one of the most iconic Bond henchmen – Jaws.
A first-of-its-kind Bond video game, 007 Legends features an original, overarching storyline featuring six classic Bond films offering the most diverse Bond gaming experience yet! As with the feature films, 007 Legends equips players with state-of-the-art spy gadgets, an arsenal of weapons, including Bond’s signature Walther PPK, and sleek vehicles as they jet off to exotic locations. Use Bond’s quick wits, class and style to take down notorious villains and their brutal henchmen, perform impressive stunts and of course… gorgeous Bond women.
The development team have also released an unveiling trailer, featuring gameplay from the Moonraker level, which you can see below…
The game certainly looks good so far, and the opportunity to play opposite one of the most iconic villains from the entire Bond history will no doubt appeal to fans. Good work making this one the first reveal, I say.
