007 Legends: Mission – Moonraker Announced

007 Legends - LogoThe latest James Bond game 007: Legends has had it’s first mission announced. For those who don’t know, 007: Legends will contain a number of missions from previous James Bond movies that link together to form a longer narrative, culminating with the forthcoming film: Skyfall. The first film to be announced for the game is the 1979 space-going Roger Moore adventure:  Moonraker. I’ve posted some screenshots from the level, together with the full press release after the break.

Personally, I’m unsure of this choice – Moonraker isn’t by any means in the top ten movies (in my opinion anyway), but I think a modernised twist on the film’s plot could actually work really well. What Moonraker does offer is a great setting for a game. So bring on Drax, Jaws, the colony of “perfect people”, laser guns and shuttles and space stations!
