GoldenEye 007 HD PS4, PS5 Release – Is It Happening?

While there’s no official confirmation that the game will even come out yet, we can safely assume that GoldenEye 007 HD is not coming to PS4 and PS5† Why? Well, Rare, the developer, is owned by Microsoft, hence there is no chance that it will come to other formats.

All we can see happening is that GoldenEye 007 HD may also be coming to Nintendo Switch, just as was the case with the launch of Banjo Kazooie for Xbox and Switch. Nintendo has published GoldenEye 007, meaning joint ownership of the IP is likely underway.

What is GoldenEye 007 HD?

Ah, history lesson time! GoldenEye 007 was released in 1997 for the N64 and was considered one of the greatest first-person shooters of its time at the time. While PC games like Quake and DOOM had set the standard, home consoles didn’t really have much success in this regard until James Bond came on the scene.

Based on the 1995 film of the same name starring Pierce Brosnan and Sean Bean, the game sees Bond trying to stop terrorists from seizing the titular superweapon, which sends out an electromagnetic pulse (EMP) attack that wipes out all electronic equipment.

GoldenEye 007 doesn’t follow the story quite closely, but many of the game’s stages are based on filming locations and the basic plot is the same, with characters like Alec, Natalia and Boris all appearing.

Then there’s the awesome multiplayer mode, which offers four-player deathmatches on one screen, something many 90s gamers spent hours on, myself included. Here you can set parameters that allow everything from regular weapons, bare-handed only, to killing the Golden Gun in one shot.
