Prima formally announced their Official
Game Guide to the forthcoming James Bond videogame "From
Russia With Love" today. The publisher, who has supplied
strategy guides to all the EA 007 licence games since "Tomorrow
Never Dies" back in 1999, released details on the 128-page
book to tie in with the new game starring Sean Connery:
"Prima's Official Game Guide includes exhaustive and
must-have maps, information on every gadget and weapons,
and the best situation in which to use them (including the
all-new Serum Gun!), tips for handling multiple enemies
at once, and more!"
The press release also included some tidbits on the game,
"Improvements include a single game engine to increase
smooth transitions when using an in-game vehicle, a new
Focus Mode mechanic, smarter AI (the baddies gang up on
you!), and improved graphics."
Planned Game Release Date Confirmed
Traditionally, Prima have released their strategy guide
during the same week of release as the new James Bond game.
Prima have listed the release date of the "From Russia
With Love" game guide as October 11th 2005 in the USA,
which backs up earlier
reports on MI6 from EA Australia that the game is targeted
for release on October 10th 2005.
