Can’t wait for the new movie to step into the shoes of James Bond? Activision announced that the Quantum of Solace video game, based on the eagerly anticipated “Quantum of Solace” and prior “Casino Royale” James Bond films, is dashing into European and North American retail outlets. Developed under license from EON Productions Ltd and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Studios Inc. (MGM), the Quantum of Solace video game equips players with the weapons, espionage and hand-to-hand combat skills and overall charm needed to survive the covert lifestyle of legendary 007 secret agent James Bond.
The Quantum of Solace video game balances a unique variety of gameplay elements, blending intense first-person action with a new third-person cover combat system, enabling players to strategically choose the best combat tactics for each situation. As James Bond, gamers must intelligently maneuver each challenge, identifying the best course of action while incapacitating enemies through silent, sneaky covert operations or full force, guns-blazing confrontations. Further, the Quantum of Solace video game features the return of fan favorite Bond multiplayer action, allowing gamers to experience a multitude of maps based on authentic locations from the “Quantum of Solace” and “Casino Royale” films and beyond. Based on the Call of Duty 4: Modern Warfare game engine with systems specifically engineered to immerse players in the Bond universe, the Quantum of Solace video game delivers superior high-definition graphics, reactive AI and visually stunning locations inspired by locales portrayed in the latest films.
To celebrate the releases of the Quantum of Solace and Guitar Hero World Tour video games, Bond aficionados and rock stars alike will be able to download and play “Another Way to Die,” the new Quantum of Solace movie theme song performed by Jack White and Alicia Keys, in Guitar Hero World Tour. The track will be available on Xbox LIVE Marketplace and on the PLAYSTATION Store on November 7th, 2008.
The Quantum of Solace video game was created by Treyarch for the Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3. The Windows PC and Wii versions were developed by Beenox Studios. The Nintendo DS version was developed by Vicarious Visions and the PlayStation 2 version by Eurocom.
