GoldenEye 007 Looks To Be Coming to Xbox As Achievements Leak

Matt Lorrigan

GoldenEye 007, the classic N64 shooter from British developer Rare, looks to finally be arriving on Xbox consoles soon, according to a new leaked GoldenEye 007 Achievement List.

The list includes achievements for completing the game's many levels on any difficulty, plus additional achievements for higher difficulty levels and quick completion times. And of course, there's achievements for playing GoldenEye 007's iconic multiplayer - there's even one for playing as Oddjob, the game's most controversial character choice!

Following Microsoft's acquisition of developer Rare in the early noughties, GoldenEye 007 was unbelievably close to releasing on Xbox 360 around 2008, with Rare even building an entire working (and updated) version of the game for release on XBLA. However, licensing talks between Nintendo, Microsoft, and the James Bond rights holders broke down, and the nearly finished game was never release - until a build of the XBLA GoldenEye 007 leaked recently, of course.

Now it looks like Xbox will finally be getting a proper version of GoldenEye 007 in the near future, if the achievements are already live. Will this be a simple port of the N64 version, or will the upgraded XBLA version finally get a release? And with Nintendo seemingly agreeing to the release, will we also see GoldenEye 007 coming to the Nintendo Switch Online Expansion Pack? Hopefully we won't have to wait too long for an official announcement, to discover the answers to these questions.

  • Wooo
  • It's aged terribly, but still nice to see it finally get some life again.
  • Damn hard achievements...
  • Those achievements are going to be tough. Some of those cheats were really difficult to unlock.
  • Do you expect me to remove this N64 logo? No Mr. Bond i expect you to die
  • I remember I 100% this game when I was a kid good times
  • Some of those time requirements on 00 Agent were hard as hell. Like controller breaking hard.
  • Just. Let. This. Be. Real.

    I bought a Nintendo 64 in the year 2000 for Goldeneye 007 after spending a Saturday night playing split-screen at my best friends house.
  • @blue and gold: yes, we get it. You don't like it. Jog on.
  • Games like Goldeneye, Perfect Dark, and Timesplitters offer a first-person shooter experience that is unique within the genre. These aren't Doom clones or primitive versions of Halo or COD.
  • I really hope this happens for real. I loved trying to get all those cheat code unlocks by speed running the levels. I think I unlocked most if not all of them. I should go check. Went back and played with some buddies a few weeks ago actual on a game night. It was rough. I used to be so good. Couldn't hit the broad side of a barn.

    I'd like a straight port and the upgraded version with a bit more modern control scheme. I'll but this day one for sure. My guess, $20.
  • You've made four posts about how you don't like it, we got it the first time
  • This August will be the 25th year anniversary so....
  • Most likely will be the leaked remaster from 2007. Can't wait!
  • I like to see all of the James Bond games get remastered or come back to the consoles
  • @ Henry
    Yes! I'd like to see them come back as well. Loved James Bond games. Keep those older games alive. I never played From Russia with Love on the Xbox Original. Always wanted to get it and give it a go.
  • @Blue n Gold Eel Okay so are you just looking for a fight? What is going on?

    You came here with a clear opinion that Goldeneye 007 is overhyped. You tried it, and it wasn't your cup of tea. Fair enough. Point taken.

    You continued to post about your annoyance with people's excitement over a title that sold 8 million copies and revolutionized the most popular genre in the video game industry today. Sounds like you are annoyed that people like replaying games they had fun with in the past. Or tired of nostalgia driving a facet of the industry?

    Now you are insulting peoples intelligence with the "learn how to count" schoolyard put downs just because your frustrated you can't edit your previous posts, I presume to make them sound less like your trolling.

    This industry is the worst it's ever been. Legal bullshit is going to keep most of our favorite games in the Goldeneye style limbo forever. Newer games in the genre are watered down and half finished with BattlePass', XP grinds, and chore lists.

    Is it such a foreign concept that people would be comforted at the thought of getting something that brought them joy in the past? I know I've only thrown gas on the fire with this but at least be happy that new stuff is coming. Just sit tight.
  • Don't feed the troll, kids.
  • Well its deffo happening, 2 ppl on trueachievements have been playin and got all the achs except the mp ones. 1 of them works for rare so testing the game/achs. I can only assume the mp ones are glitched or mp is actually online not local as it was on the n64
  • ill play this if its not too pricey. Im not sure how well it will of aged no matter what they have done with the graphics, sound etc. But ive played conker, banjo, resi 1, 4 over multiple systems and they've all stood the test of time pretty well. Plus you actually felt like bond with the gadgets and levels mirroring the film which most of bond games failed to do. I did kinda like the mp on bloodstone tho!
  • Keep it friendly, please. No need to troll on a classic's return.
  • This thread is so typical of this site lol, as soon as anyone expresses an opinion that the majority doesn't share the majority can't handle it. As for the game being released now, if it has the same controls as it did back then this will be a mess, I was playing this and Diddy Kong Racing the other day and this was really bad control wise. DKR was awesome though :D
