Objective based team games will compliment the usual death
match modes, and a new "revenge system" enhances
an already impressive "bounty scoring system"
with players tracking down their killer within the first
30 seconds of respawning. It's goodnight to campers.
One idea being knocked around by the developers is a multiplayer
mode that is a spin-off from the tried and tested "capture
the flag" formula, where a hostage basically becomes
the flag, and each team has to try to grab him and drag
him back to their base - kicking and screaming.
The Next Best Thing
Don't have any friends (or friends that want to frag)? Don't
have online support? Worry not. "Rogue Agent"
will feature E.V.I.L. AI bots to death match against and
with, so your skills can be sharpened without anyone taking
up your valuable sofa space.
Believe The Hype?
So can "Rogue Agent" finally get a grip on the
mantle held by "GoldenEye N64" for all these years?
All of EA's past multi-player aspects to Bond games have
ended in slight disappointment, but there has never been
a better opportunity to deliver action that can rival the
1997 classic. With the additional online play, maybe it's
time to get around the sofa again, but without the N64 controllers
Atlantis - Karl Stromberg's underwater
lair from "The Spy Who Loved Me" returns
from a brief and somewhat disappointing appearance
in "Agent Under Fire", this time it's
in all it's Ken Adam glory.
Severnaya - Xenia Onatopp made
her reputation here by shooting all the Russian
Space Division employees in "GoldenEye",
let's hope for more "climatic" action.
Scaramanga's Funhouse - The testing
ground for the million-dollar-a-shot hitman in "The
Man With The Golden Gun" is remade as a perfect
hunting ground in deathmatch mode.
Moonraker Launch Facility - Expect
to see all the classic elements from the "Moonraker"
set, including the conference room (which was cut
from the original film script) - where players can
activate the overhead thrusters to toast anyone
St. Cyril's Monastery - Although
one of the lesser known Bond locales, this mountain-top
building from "For Your Eyes Only" makes
for a superb multiplayer map.
Piz Gloria- A restaurant in real-life,
Blofeld's lair from "On Her Majesty's Secret
Service" not only offers great ski slopes and
a bob sleigh run - but will now become a top capture
the flag location.
