FRWL Prima Guide Announced
6th May 2005

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.

A release in early October will be a break from the usual EA tradition of aiming for shipping in mid-November. "NightFire" and "GoldenEye: Rogue Agent" both hit the shelves during the "holiday season" in the USA (Thanksgiving), and the last 007 outing "Everything or Nothing" was originally scheduled for a similar release in November 2003 but was ultimately delayed until February 2004.

Prima's Game Guide, published by Random House, will retail for £12.99 in the UK and $14.99 in the USA - but is available for pre-order now on for the amazing knock-down price of $11.55.
