After years of rumors and speculation, Goldeneye 007 is finally back on modern platforms. Goldeneye 007 has a January 27 release date on Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch (via Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack). The Xbox version is available on Game Pass and as part of the Rare Replay collection – it’s free if you already own a copy. Goldeneye is expected to launch at midnight local time, while the Switch version will likely go live at 2pm GMT UK time (based on previous Switch Online updates).
After the PlayStation-exclusive action game, Forspoken received less than favorable reviews earlier this week; Goldeneye 007 could be this year’s first essential release. Both versions feature the same classic Goldeneye gameplay, albeit with one or two modern upgrades. The Nintendo Switch edition resembles the N64 release, although fans can now enjoy online multiplayer and a widescreen display. The Xbox version has even more improvements, such as 4K Ultra HD visuals, achievements and alternative control options. And don’t worry if you’re a fan of the original Goldeneye because the upcoming release includes split-screen multiplayer for four people. Check out the trailer below for the improvements available with the Xbox version of Goldeneye 007.
As a reminder, one month of Xbox Game Pass is available for just £1 for new customers. After your £1 trial, Game Pass is £7.99 a month for access to the game library or £10.99 for Game Pass Ultimate. Xbox Game Pass Ultimate combines Game Pass with Xbox Gold, meaning you can play your favorite multiplayer games online. You can also access console and PC games over the cloud. On the other hand, Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass adds Sega Mega Drive and N64 titles to the games library. That’s on top of bonuses like free Mario Kart 8 Deluxe DLC, Animal Crossing New Horizons content, and Splatoon rewards.
Goldeneye 007 is finally here and ready to be enjoyed on modern platforms. With the Xbox version available on Game Pass and the Nintendo Switch version available on Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack, fans of the classic game can now enjoy it with all the modern upgrades. The Xbox version features 4K Ultra HD visuals, achievements, and alternative control options, while the Nintendo Switch version offers online multiplayer and a widescreen display. Both versions also include split-screen multiplayer for four people, so fans of the original Goldeneye can still enjoy the classic experience. Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pass offer great deals for players looking to access the game. Don’t miss the chance to experience Goldeneye 007 in all its glory!
