The legendary rare Nintendo 64 game, GoldenEye 007, captivated many when it was released in 1997, just months before its cinematic debut. It is a well-known fact that a modern console port was created for the game, but it did not appear in the end. The redesigned port of GoldenEye 007 was revealed in a rather unorthodox way: at the beginning of last year, a full play of it was leaked, as well as 4K at 60 frames per second. A month later, in February 2021, the game files were dropped and players crashed into the gray area. So GoldenEye 007 Remastered is all set, they just blew the game up at the last minute.
Now, however, 55 achievements have been released on TrueAchievements that belong to GoldenEye 007. According to the achievements tracking page on Xbox, the 55 leaked trophies don’t match up with 007’s game achievements leaked last year, so even that complicates the situation. Storytelling will appear as part of the Xbox Live Arcade service. Among the trophies that have just been leaked, there are some that require you to complete Bunker/Facilities/Roof/Warehouse/Cave and other levels on any difficulty level. However, there are also difficult challenges, for example, to unlock all weapons in less than 6 minutes on the operator difficulty level 00, the Egyptian level. Complete list of achievements here You can find it.
The question arises, if the game is ready, then why not appear? The short answer lies in the complexity of copyright, the longer answer is more complex. GoldenEye 007 has 15 different companies involved. First, when the game was released, Rare was still owned by Nintendo, but during the studio it was already owned by Microsoft, and the game mechanics are owned by Rare, but because Rare is owned by Microsoft, the studio was unable to upload the game to their internal platform. , for Rare Replay. Complicating matters further is the fact that since 2011, Electronic Arts and Activision (Acti released a 2010 remake, GoldenEye 007: Reloaded) have owned the GoldenEye video player license, while the movie rights are owned by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and the distribution rights belong to Universal . In 2020, Apple and Netflix battled to acquire all rights to GoldenEye, and IO Interactive behind Hitman is making a Bond game prepared by the current James Bond series owners, EON Productions.
According to the current situation, nothing particularly clever can be said. Although the “Achievements” leak is an encouraging sign, it doesn’t guarantee anything, especially with such a complex copyright background, and it’s also worth noting that the “Achievements” are different from the game that was leaked last year. Sure, the awards may have changed in the meantime, but that wouldn’t make much sense. Anyway, hope is finally dying, and GoldenEye 007 is the first FPS to come out on console and it was pretty good. He definitely deserves more than this vomiting fate.
