    Electronic Arts yesterday launched its new website for their upcoming 007 first-person shooter GoldenEye: Rogue Agent.

    The site is relatively devoid of content at this early stage, however it does feature some neat artwork, including a peek at some of the character models that will feature in the game, including Dr. No, Xenia Onatopp, Auric Goldfinger and Oddjob, all of whom bearing startling resemblances to their filmic counterparts.

    Only three screenshots from the game presently appear on the site, although they’re the ones that appeared elsewhere on the web in the previous week.

    Users also have the option to sign up for the 007 Communiqué newsletter, a feature that was also offered during production on Everything or Nothing, where members regularly receive exclusive updates and content to their e-mail inboxes.

    EA promises regular updates to the site, so it shouldn’t be long before fans are offered a more in-depth look into the development of this game.

    The site also confirms that the game will be compatible with Microsoft’s new X-Box Live technology, something that had been earlier rumoured, but never confirmed through any official channels.

    In other Rogue Agent news, IGN Insider has revealed that techno cult star Paul Oakenfold will be creating the music for the game. Also Gamesport recently got their hands on some art from the new game, including a spectacular concept piece showing a chopper that has crashed through the roof of Fort Knox, which, one speculates, will take place during Rogue Agent’s re-imagined climax of Goldfinger.
