With the largest video gaming event, E3 looming, EA has revealed the games it’ll be showcasing at the event – including the next Bond game, which has been titled as “Everything or Nothing”.
As already mentioned, EoN’s story will be written by Bruce Feirstein who wrote for the films, GoldenEye, Tomorrow Never Dies and The World Is Not Enough.
In the Press Release, EA say that this will be the most complex Bond game ever – which leads us to believe that the level design will not follow a linear path – as the previous games have done, possible one where you decide how the story flows by making decisions while playing.
EA has also revealed in the Press Release, that EoN will be played in a Third Person perspective – the first game since Tomorrow Never Dies to have done so – Agent Under Fire and NightFire both were First Person perspective. However, this shouldn’t be worrying; Splinter Cell, an espionage game written by Tom Clancy was in 3rd Person, and has gone on to be the most sucessful game of the year.
Now for the disappointing news. NightFire hailed the return of Bond to the PC – however a short stay this seems to have been, as EoN will not be available for the PC. It will only be published on the PlayStation 2 console, Xbox, GameCube, and Game Boy Advance.
Everything or Nothing is being scheduled for release in late 2003.
