Twenty-plus years after its first official launch in 1997, the legendary James bond game GoldenEye 007 is coming back to our consoles. Following a publication by Rare, the game is currently available globally via Xbox Game Pass. This is a move that will allow all players to enjoy the veteran espionage game on new-generation consoles.
The Return of GoldenEye 007 to Xbox Game Pass
GoldenEye was launched in 1994, introducing players to a game starring James Bond, coupled with the use of explosives and high-tech gadgets in the battleground. Following the official Xbox Game Pass launch, the developers have announced the existence of gameplay options for all players.
After downloading the game, players can decide to enjoy the game by turning on silent mode. In this strategy, gamers will use silent weapons to remain inconspicuous. At the same time, this model type will allow players to set traps to the opponents and offer several means to hide during attacks.
On the other hand, players may choose to attack the enemy head-on. In this game type, players maneuver battlegrounds and apply their skills towards the success of the 007’s mission.
As players progress in the game, they will meet harder levels that unlock new objectives. However, the harder the levels the more mastery of the game’s location is needed. Fortunately, spies who are speedy will get to enjoy game-altering cheats.
As the developers aim to maintain originality, GoldenEye 007 will maintain its legendary characters and places as in Xbox One. However, the team has added modern control options and a full roster of Xbox achievements with today’s launch to improve playability. Among the control additions include:
- support for dual analog sticks
- consistent refresh rate
- running at a native 16:9 resolution up to 4K Ultra HD (where supported)
Players can now download and enjoy GoldenEye 007 on Xbox One and Xbox Series X|S as part of the Xbox Game Pass. At the same time, the game will be available to various devices via the Xbox Cloud Gaming, also via Xbox Game Pass. Additionally, Rare has thrown in a deal to make the game free for download for gamers who purchase the hard copy version.
