When GoldenEye 007 came to Nintedo 64 it was, for many, the first multiplayer shooter experience they had. It was also a great game for the time and I have many fond memories of multiplayer parties at friends houses (no one was allowed to pick Oddjob). Well, Microsoft is giving GoldenEye 007 the re-release treatment and bringing it to XBox and Switch.

"Since its original release in 1997, GoldenEye 007 has remained a beloved classic in the hearts and minds of millions of fans worldwide. Today, we’re excited to announce that a new generation of players will soon get to experience the genre-defining stealth shooter gameplay for themselves, faithfully recreated to preserve the action and excitement of the original while adding new features for the modern age of gaming.

Players will guide James Bond on a global espionage mission to prevent the devastating power of the GoldenEye satellite from being unleashed upon the world. The classic campaign mode, transformative difficulty levels and havoc-inducing cheats will all make their return – as will the iconic split-screen local multiplayer mode, allowing up to four players to take to the couch in a battle of wits and skill.

The original experience has been updated with improved control options (including dual analogue stick support), native 16:9 resolution up to 4K Ultra HD (where supported), a consistent refresh rate and a full complement of achievements to unlock.

The GoldenEye remake is coming to XBox Games Pass as well as a free download for folks that have the Rare Collection digitally!

Aw, man, I want it on Steam. This has been rumored for a long time. This was one of the best N64 games. I think it was what primarily got me to buy one. I had local friends to play with and it was fun. I haven't looked too deep into playing XBox games on my PC. I just Googled it. I've used the XBox Companion app for recording or connecting to XBox friends. I used it for the Bedrock version of Minecraft, but that's it. Maybe that's something to look for this.

Also, Jon, underneath the 2nd paragraph here is text that reads "GoldenEye 007 screenshot."

Thanks for sharing this!

Good catch, removed that.

I wonder if there are contracts keeping it off PC? Microsoft had been fairly PC supportive.
