GoldenEye 007 Is Getting A Fan Remake In Unreal Engine 4 (VIDEO)
Goldeneye 007 is one of the quintessential classics of the FPS genre. The game revolutionized the genre for consoles and is considered a progenitor to games like Halo and Call of Duty. However, while GoldenEye certainly had its time in history when gamers all loved it, going back to play the single player campaign leaves much to be desired. Having aiming and movement relegated to one stick is a very archaic input method by today’s standards and the visuals are downright rough to look at. Luckily though it seems we might have some hope from a modding team called GoldenZen. The team aims to remake GoldenEye 007 from scratch using Unreal Engine 4 for PC users to fall in love with all over again. Check out the trailer for GoldenEye 25 below:
The classic Facility level from the original GoldenEye looks absolutely stunning in this brand new engine, plus the guns and Bond’s hand look absolutely immaculate. The team even refined the music and sounds from the game! Obviously, this is a pretty rough draft so far, as you can see from the placeholder guards and lack of AI. Additionally, the controls don’t seem particularly fluid.
But man, you can already see yourself getting the drop on these guards in the stalls, right? The project looks pretty promising, however, there’s always the worry that Nintendo, Rare, or Eon Productions who own the rights to the James Bond films might take legal action against the mod. If the team keeps the project free they might be able to skirt the cease & desist, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
So, thoughts on GoldenEye 25? Would you play GoldenEye’s campaign again if it had modern controls and graphics?
