Bond gamers have not had a new title to get their teeth into since Activision dropped the 007 licence in 2013 after the failure of '007 Legends' (and we will pretend to forget the insipid mobile game 'World of Espionage'), but there were two games announced at the E3 show today that took heavy inspiration from the spy series.
First up, 'Clutch Royale' sees players "follow the new Operator Warden as he tries to pull off a clutch in Operation Phantom Sight" based on Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Seige game. Stay to the end of the trailer for the blatant riff on 'Casino Royale.' The game is released tomorrow for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
Perhaps more original is a long-awaited sequel to the 2004 game 'Evil Genius,' which had players design lairs and traps to catch secret agents trying to undo their dastardly masterplans. With a loving win to the 1960s spy-fi genre, and a touch of Austin Powers, 'Evil Genius 2: World Domination' will launch on PC in April 2020.
