1. More Details on EA's 'Casino Royale'

    By Matt Weston on 2005-12-23

    Fresh off last week’s report that the next 007 game will be based on the upcoming James Bond film, Casino Royale comes more details of the next entry in EA’s canon.

    Earlier this week, Kotaku revealed the new Bond game would be headed to current-generation consoles, despite rumours it was being developed for next-generation systems.

    Now, the Advanced Media Network has revealed that, like Everything Or Nothing and From Russia With Love before it, Casino Royale will be a third-person action title. EA’s greatest success as Bond game franchise holders has come from this format with Everything Or Nothing being arguably its biggest critical and commercial hit (From Russia With Love, however, continues to experience slow sales).

    Casino Royale, according to the Advanced Media Network, has been in pre-production since before From Russia With Love hit store shelves, with concept art and 3D models having already been completed. As previously reported by CBn, the game will feature the likeness of the new James Bond, Daniel Craig.

    Expect the game’s release to coincide with Casino Royale‘s arrival in cinemas in late-2006.
