Activision has announced today that 007 Legends will feature a variety of past and present Bond talent including Daniel Craig, Michael Lonsdale, Naomie Harris and Richard Kiel, among others.
007 Legends will feature Daniel Craig as James Bond while Rory Kinnear voices MI6's Chief of Staff, Bill Tanner. The Moonraker mission features familiar Bond actors, including Michael Lonsdale reprising his villainous role as Hugo Drax and Richard Kiel as Drax's notorious henchman - Jaws. Naomie Harris, from this fall's feature film Skyfall, will also make a video game appearance in 007 Legends.
In addition, veteran Bond film and video game writer, Bruce Feirstein, pens 007 Legends' overarching storyline while the acclaimed James Bond film composer, David Arnold, and established TV composer, Kevin Kiner ("Hell on Wheels," "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," "CSI: Miami") will lend their musical expertise and talent to the games soundtrack. The 007 Legends' talent roster will continue to grow as additional game missions are revealed.
A first-of-its-kind Bond video game, 007 Legends features an original, overarching storyline tying together five classic Bond movie-inspired missions plus a sixth mission based on this year's highly-anticipated movie, Skyfall, which will be available post launch as downloadable content. As with the feature films, 007 Legends equips players with state-of-the-art spy gadgets, an arsenal of weapons and sleek vehicles as they jet off to exotic locations and utilize Bond's quick wits, class and style to take down notorious villains and their brutal henchmen and perform impressive stunts.
007 Legends is planned to launch on October 16th, 2012, for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and as a download for the PC.
