Not only is Bizarre Creations’ “James Bond 007: Blood Stone” officially acknowledged as a game as of today; it’s added British singer Joss Stone to its talent roster to accompany Daniel Craig and Dame Judi Dench, as well as to perform the original track “I’ll Take it All” with Eurythmics member Dave Stewart.
“’James Bond 007: Blood Stone’ captures the cinematic intensity of a Bond film by immersing players in an intriguing conspiracy that will require them to think and act like James Bond,” Activision Publishing head of marketing for licensed properties David Pokress said in a press release. “In addition, the game will feature a diverse array of multi-player modes and debut strategic objective-based gameplay that will allow Xbox 360, PS3 and PC players to battle as teams of spies and mercenaries through authentic Bond locales.”
Many wondered if this game would be a car-focused title, given Bizarre’s history making games like “Blur” and the “Project Gotham” racing series. While the announcement does promise “full-throttle, behind-the-wheel action on land and sea” it also specifically references “cover-based firefights, lethal hand-to-hand combat” that will occur along the way.
What I want to know, though, is whether or not you’ll be able to engage in knife fights while racing, because that would be pretty boss.
