The trailer indicates that you are playing alongside Dr. Holly Goodhead in the first mission, yet there doesn't happen to be any hint that there is going to be a co-operative mission strand?
It would be cool if they did introduce a co-operative mission basis for all levels using the (admittedly politically incorrect) "BOND GIRLS" as the playable second character in each mission chapter.
Any thoughts / inputs towards this spark of ideas would be greatly appreciated
Co-operative missions is something that new generation games somehow don't include when it is such a great idea and fun to play with friends and family! Especially since this is classic films remade into a game it would be a better gaming experience to play along with a friend. We have seen co-op missions in a few games such as call of duty world at war and several other games, but it would be great to include it in a Bond game! Player one could play as Bond and player two could play as the Bond girl or even the villain or villain's henchmen?! This is such a fantastic idea that should be optional in every game as it is so much more interesting playing missions with someone else! Thanks for making this discussion!
It may be a long shot but yesterday's pre-order announcement has some very interesting wording:
"With the Nemesis Pack, gamers get to play as Moonraker's space-suited henchman or Live and Let Die's voodoo king sporting his iconic skeleton paint in the Legends and multiplayer split-screen modes."
It seems to suggest that there are distinct split-screen modes in both the multiplayer and single player. Dare we believe...?
I higly doubt that they are going to do co-op missions but it would be really fun I really enjoyed playing the co-op story mode in Everything or Nothing! At least the game is going to have local multiplayer like Goldeneye that is a way to rare thing in games today...
There is a further nod that co-operative play will be included in the 007 Legends single player campaign: http://uk.playstation.com/ps3/games/detail/item534398/007%E2%84%A2-LEGENDS/. Notice it reads "Players: 1 - 2".
And don't discount this information so easily, for it is a reputable site and other details are accurate (such as network play of 2 -12 players).
It's all beginning to come together. Amazon are getting that from the Game: Features section of this site, which reads:
007 EXPERIENCES - Complete different assault, elimination, espionage and defense objectives. Access unlockable and upgradable gadgets and weapons. Customize your experience with the companion AI, which allows for varied gameplay and additional storytelling.
I had feared that Eurocom were simply trying to mimic COD and have allies fight with you at all times -which is not how it's done in the films. However, I'd much prefer if co-op was the reason behind the companions.
But you know, i think this concept is better than CoD. being the reason that you could play with a friend. Who knows, maybe you could play online campaign with a friend.
