beyond traditional FPS mechanics. See enemies through cover
using MRI vision, manipulate electronics and weapons using

flying across the room with the Magnetic Field.

to your actions and their surroundings to make every shootout
more believable, intense, and unpredictable.

Press Release - PlayStation 2 / Xbox / GameCube
Going where no previous James Bond game has dared to tread, the
upcoming "GoldenEye: Rogue Agent" first-person shooter
from Electronic Arts breaks all the rules by transporting players
to the dark side of the Bond universe to experience life as a
high-rolling, cold-hearted villain. The highly anticipated game
is scheduled to ship later this year on PlayStation 2, Xbox, and
GameCube under the EA Games brand.
As an aspiring 00 agent dismissed from MI6 for reckless
brutality, the player is hired as an enforcer by Auric Goldfinger,
the wealthy super-villain with a lust for all things gold.
Goldfinger is locked in a ruthless war against his archenemy,
the brilliant scientist Dr. No. The prize is control of
the world's greatest criminal organization. A brutal encounter
with Dr. No costs the player an eye, but Goldfinger's technicians
replace it with a gold-hued, synthetic eye, earning the
player the name 'GoldenEye'. Players have the ability to
customize and upgrade their villain persona and wreak havoc
as they make their unrelenting rise through the ranks.
With a radical twist to the Bond franchise that makes the
player's goal to rule the world rather than save it, GoldenEye:
Rogue Agent is the ultimate thrill ride through the 007
underworld. Players will cross paths with such legendary
allies and enemies as Oddjob, Scaramanga, Xenia Onatopp,
and, of course, Pussy Galore on globe-spanning missions
of vengeance and demolition. Players will travel to famous
and original Bond locations from the mountains of Switzerland
to the streets of Hong Kong and from Fort Knox to Dr. No's
Crab Key lair in the Caribbean. Enemies will react intelligently
in combat situations and use the environment to their advantage
for intense and unpredictable shootouts.
GoldenEye: Rogue Agent seamlessly integrates single-player,
multiplayer split-screen, and online gameplay for the PlayStation
2 across all game modes.
Featured modes include story-driven campaign missions,
deathmatch style simulator trials, and objective-based war

Although Xenia Onatopp the James Bond film GoldenEye appears in
the game, the stories have no real ties to each other. The plot
of the film revolved around a weapon called the GoldenEye which
used a nuclear bomb detonated in the upper atmosphere to create
a damaging electromagnetic pulse on earth, whereas in the game
it is the name of the lead character and his synthetic eye implant.
During the games production, it was rumored that the original
Goldeneye 64 video game would be buried within the games code
and accessed via a special Easter Egg type of command. The idea
was dreamt up by designers who felt that Electronic Arts was trying
to piggyback off the success of Goldeneye 64 by calling their
newest game "GoldenEye 2", which has no resemblance
