EoN enlisted Hollywood acting talent
and a popular singer to play original characters in the
game. Have you hired any big talent to do voice-overs for
the movie characters or to perhaps feature as an original
character that did appear not in the movie?
Well, besides Connery, we’ve added Natasha Bedingfield,
a very well known pop singer in the UK and gaining popularity
in the US, as the Prime Minister’s daughter. She’s
very prominent and important for the first level of the
game. Not only is her likeness in it but she did all the
voice work. She was great to work with.
We also have added Maria Menounous who was in this year’s
“Fantastic 4” movie as well as a correspondent
for the Today Show and Entertainment Tonite.
Previous Bond games have offered reward systems with
bonus unlocks to extend the replay value of the game. What
are your plans to extend the longevity of the single player
campaign in FRWL?
We’ve far out done the other Bond games in that respect.
We still have lots of unlockable content, but we’ve
also added an upgrading system to the weapons and gadgets
and have four unlockable bonus levels. Even our Multiplayer
has upgradeable weapons and armor.
The points are earned throughout the game by fighting like
Bond, using our Bond Focus shooting mode and finding Bond
Moments. Use these points to buy more armor, add more clips
or rounds or buy even more powerful special ammo.
Finally, what are you most excited about in this game?
If successful can we expect more classic movie based Bond
games in the future?
We’re very proud of our integrated levels of action,
vehicles and new gadgets. But our huge new feature is the
up to four player multiplayer games we’ve added. There’s
deathmatch, sabatoge and even a jetpack mode. Our multiplayer
lets you play as teams or go head to head and use all the
vehicles, weapons, gadgets and even jetpacks that are in
the single player. It is great fun.
And how can you not be proud of creating Sean Connery’s
first video game and the medium that reunited him as James
Bond after more than three decades.
