Activision working on GoldenEye sequel

Activision working on GoldenEye sequel

Activision's GoldenEye sequel is said to be a Wii and DS exclusive, though we'll know more after E3.

Activision is rumoured to be working on a sequel to Rare's Nintendo 64 classic, GoldenEye, according to Eurogamer.

The GoldenEye sequel has yet to be officially announced, though it's speculated to be unveiled at E3 next week.

The rumour is also supported by concept images supposedly included as part of a product survey sent out by Activision and intercepted by GoNintendo.

Both sources currently have the GoldenEye sequel pegged as a Wii and DS exclusive game, fitting since the original was also a Nintendo exclusive and Nintendo probably still owns some of the rights. The first GoldenEye game was developed by Rare, which is now owned by Microsoft - so there are obvious issues there that may prevent the original developer returning to the franchise.

Supposedly, Activision's GoldenEye will include 4-player splitscreen multiplayer and up to 8-player online. It will also have been developed "from the ground up" for the Wii.

Activision hasn't offered any official comment on the rumours.

Goldeneye still kicks ass but it is getting difficult to play for any length of time due to low quality fx. A refresh on the Wii would be excellent.

Awesome game that stole many, many hours of my life. Although I doubt it will persuade me to get a Wii.

It would be nice to see a release to PC.

I loved goldeneye, it was a great game back in its day. But a sequal? really. I wont be getting it because every bond game since has been complete pants compared. Imo it should be one of those games thats fondly remembered but left well alone.

Theres always goldeneye source for those of us that want to relive the game but at todays standards.

We can still play it emulated on PC tho I suppose but not as good as a proper PC release.

That's assuming it'll be as good as the original and worth playing anyway!

This was looking promising till I read Wii/DS exclusive both platforms are total rubbish for playing proper games on Nintendo should stick to Wii Sports that's about all a Wii is good for.

I bloody loved Golden Eye on the N64, hours and hours of fun as a student playing that game.

MarioKart? infact anything with Mario in it at the moment has massive playability and is above all else FUN.

House of the Dead with the shotguns is hilarious as well.

Red Steel 2, Dead Space Extraction, and The Conduit (to name a few) would disagree. The Wii isn't up to PS3/360 hd quality, but it doesn't mean you can't have quality looking games that are fun to play.

And the PS3/360 are not up to PC quality but it's not all about graphics that make a good game.

I have my doubts that it will be any good, even if Rare was developing it I'd still be sceptical after Perfect Dark: Zero (bleh). Seems like a cash in to me.

Come on, the number of quality games on the wii is miniscule compared to the ps3/360, the wii is more of a non gamers system, people who normally don't touch consoles have a wii. There is a reason the attach rate is terrible for the wii despite having twice as many boxes in homes. The wii is a prime example of the dumb masses buying something because of hype and not merit.

Alas, there is a massive diff between the wii and the diff between PS3/360 and PC. The wii is so far behind it's not funny.

While everyone likes to bash the Wii for it's lack of grunt and an apparent lack of games, I would argue that if you're looking for A-list games along the lines of x360 and ps3 releases you're looking for the wrong things. The Wii's strengths lie in niches that can make good use of it's controller.

eg: why would you ever play a golf game on anything else, especially with motion plus support?
eg: do the PS3 and x360 even have light guns available for them?
eg: World of Goo - pointer/mouse or control stick? Bet it's easier to play with the former

Be honest, don't you get bored of the endless stream of FPSs and GTA-a-likes that make up the vast majority of the x360 and ps3's core sales? There's only so many decades you can play FPS's and enjoy them, and I've played through my 2.

The original was an awesome game that I spent a shocking amount of time playing. But the news that activision are making a sequel... I seriously doubt the game will be anything more than average.

I admit my Wii collection isn't as big as my PS3 collection, but there are still solid games for the Wii. Mario Kart, Super Mario Bros., Super Mario Galaxy, the games I mentioned in my last post (though not so much The Conduit).

All I'm saying is don't count the game out just because it's on the Wii. The developer and storyline/premise will have a far greater impact on the outcome of the game than the hardware.

$9.99 DLC to get the golden gun

I remember getting so good with the grenade launcher on temple that, once I got in the large main room, I was practically untouchable. I could bounce those nades around any corner and over any obstacle.


Also, dual RCP90's>all other FPS weapons ever?

The problem I see with a Wii version is that it's likely to end up as yet another averagegame using the motion sensitive controls as a gimick to drive sales. The only shooters I've seen on the Wii that were any fun were arcade lightgun ports and they are just excellent. I can't really see Goldeneye on the Wii being anywhere near as good as the N64 version was. Let's not even mention the DS...

I never got the golden eye bug, probably because I was playing Quake 2 instead.

i think this is actually a remake, not sequel. The sequel was done already anyways with Rogue Agent.

Really, the "sequel" to GoldenEye was Perfect Dark.

I didn't have a pc back in 95 but once I started playing Jedi Knight in 97 I realized how much better a mouse was

I was partial to the cougar magnum in MP, nothing more rewarding than killing somebody going nuts with an RCP90. The Dostovei in SP was the shiz, such a cathartic sound coupled with the thuds of hitting an enemy. I never much liked the automatics...With the way the game was set up there was a delay in how quickly you could cause damage in MP, rendering them almost pointless if you were a decent shot. The guess the shotgun was 'aight.

Man, I loved Turbo mode. That game was just epic genius.

Also, Klobb < all other FPS weapons ever?

Yes, just Like Half-Life 2 is a sequel to Team Fortress 2 or Zeno Clash....

Great, now I have to dig out the N64 and play GoldenEye this weekend


thanks for reminding me ;)

Shooters on the wii fail anyway and then they always have some need to add a random flailing mechanic to make "full use" of the motion controls.

I'll stick to the emulator thanks, it probably will have better graphics on the emulator too :P

OH GOD THE KLOBB, and the automatics were great when burst fired but due to the mechanics pray and spray didn't really work. Also dead guards blocking your shots and the other guards could shoot through.

The crew I played against always used to check walls, floors and round corners but still weren't looking up when we moved on to something else. I can't remember the number of times I got sworn at or given a dead leg for blowing someone's brains out through the base of their spine again Turbo mode slap fight FTW :D

Dual auto shotguns by choice for me but Klobb as a close second.
