Activision releases 007 Legends video game

Activision has announced that its new video game 007 Legends is available to purchase. This is the latest video game in Activision's James Bond franchise, and the game sounds very cool. As the name implies, the game is based on five different classic Bond movies.

The Bond films that the video game is based on include Goldfinger, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Moonraker, License to Kill, Die Another Day, and the upcoming film Skyfall. The box image for the video game shows my favorite Bond villain of all time, Jaws. I hope Jaws is a playable character and figures heavily into the game.

The video game will launch across Europe on October 19 and on in Australia on October 31. From the description, it sounds as if the missions go along with each of the classic films. A sixth mission is unlockable that is based on the new Skyfall movie due out next month.

The Skyfall mission is offered as download content and its availability is timed to coincide with the movie. PlayStation Network subscribers will be able to access the Skyfall mission on November 9, and the mission will hit Xbox Live on November 20. Each of the six missions the game offers multiple levels and allows players to use spy gadgets, different weapons, vehicles, and more. The game will be offered for the Xbox 360, PS3, Wii U, and Windows computers. The Windows version will be available on Steam on November 2.
