GoldenEye Reloaded takes aim for autumn release

The legendary Bond game gets a reboot for Xbox 360 and PS3. Want to watch the trailer?

If you've been impatiently waiting for the Xbox 360 and PS3 to catch up with the Wii and DS on the Goldeneye franchise front, you can stop biting your nails. GoldenEye 007: Reloaded has been completely remade in HD for both consoles. But rather than being a remake of Rare's N64 classic, it's a completely new title created by Eurocom. That means Daniel Craig instead of Pierce Brosnan, who thankfully sports a tux as opposed to those signature figure-hugging swim pants.

As well as rehashing the Wii game's story with updated visuals, it also introduces a new MI6 Ops Missions mode – a distinctly different set of levels set on new maps, complete with challenges that involve an assortment of assault, elimination, stealth and defence objectives.

GoldenEye Reloaded also improves on the multi-player, split-screen action with a new rewards system, as well as bringing 16-player online matches into the mix with more maps, weapons, characters and game modes then ever before. Move users get a look in, too, with the introduction of Move support, for gesture-based gameplay a la Wii.

It's due out in September in the US, with the UK due to get a look in shortly afterwards. Want to see a trailer? Thought so.
