MI6 previews the forthcoming "GoldenEye:
Rogue Agent" game from EA, focusing on the single
GoldenEye Rogue Agent - Single Player Campaign Preview
20th July 2004
Fort Knox, USA - Chaos
surrounds you, and the world's most famous "secret"
agent, 007, is in trouble. What do you do? Let him fall
to his death - that's what. Now unleash your evilness on
any goon within sight, rampaging through Goldfinger's target
from Operation Grandslam. Only one foe stands before you:
he's short, stocky, and wields a familiar looking bowler
hat. Oddjob! But before you get to go one-on-one with the
Korean, everything ripples and fades out into the MI6 VR
simulator room, and it's the end for you as a 00-agent.
After M gives you a stiff talking too, you are kicked out
of MI6 for good - too brutal and too evil to be a suave
British agent. So who do you turn to?
Above: The single player campaign opens
with a VR simulation of a Fort Knox mission which leads to
your expulsion from MI6.
Auric Enterprises - Shunned from MI6, you enter
the payroll of someone who respects the kind of qualities that
caused you trouble as a 00, Auric Goldfinger! Now inside the inner
circle, Oddjob is your trusty comrade, along with Pussy Galore
who will be flying you to each location when Goldfinger sends
you on a mission. But all is not well in the villain universe.
Goldfinger has invented a new incredible weapon called "The
Omen", and Dr. Julius No wants to get his steel claws on
it. Determined to keep his ace card up his sleeve during the SPECTRE
power struggle, Goldfinger decides to take a pre-emptive strike
on Dr. No - and sends you to do it.

Hoover Dam, USA - The
mission: take care of Dr. No and make sure he poses no threat
to Goldfinger's supremacy as top Bond villain. But it's
never that simple.
Dr. No has seized control of the Hoover Dam as an insurance
policy against Goldfinger keeping control of the Omen weapon,
and has placed a bomb on the dam to prevent the US forces
taking back control of it. So what do you do? Assassinate
Dr. No and blow up the dam anyway!
Despite your best efforts, Dr. No survives the face-down
and causes you a grievous injury - blinding you in one eye.
Nevertheless, the dam explodes as planned and it's 1-1 in
the Dr. No vs Goldfinger war.
Pussy Galore comes to your rescue and airlifts you to assistance
- but not a hospital. Goldfinger is not the only villain with a
love of the precious metal. Francisco Scaramanga also has a taste
for the yellow stuff, and along with his technical experience, has
engineered a special "golden eye" - and you are the first
Hong Kong - Equipped with
the latest in golden engineering, you have a score to settle
with Dr. No. The action switches to the Hong Kong skyline
where Pussy Galore fly's you across the rooftops, giving
you the perfect view to a kill. Dr. No has fitted himself
with an impressive building, including huge dragon sculptures,
but it doesn't last long with your viciousness and MI6 training.
Hollowed Out Volcano - Any Bond fan will
instantly recognise the classic lair from "You Only
Live Twice", and Goldfinger has decided to move in.
This is where all of your future operations will be based
from, and links together the different characters and provides
the hooks to the multiplayer missions. It is also the final
mission of the eight featured in "Rogue Agent",
when the world's worst villains with a very messy turf war
decide to go for glory with one final battle.
