Oddjob, You Sneaky Son Of A Gun – ‘Goldfinger’ Joins The ‘007 Legends’ Lineup

The 1964 film completes the lineup of storylines coming to EON Productions/Activision’s FPS tied to this winter’s Skyfall. In this one, Daniel Craig will stand in for Sean Connery whose Bond was tasked in Goldfinger with stopping gold magnate Auric Goldfinger from irradiating the fold supply at Fort Knox.

Oh, and it’s the one with Pussy Galore.

You can find more screens and details after the jump.

According to the press release, Bond will have to defuse a nuclear bomb guarded by Goldfinger’s henchman, Oddjob (played by Harold Sakata in the film). Newer Bond franchise fans might recognize the image below getting referenced in 2008’s Quantum of Solace, with oil replacing gold as the method of murdering the woman unfortunate enough to get close to the British secret agent.

The Goldfinger mission joins four other films from the Bond series–Die Another Day, Moonraker, Licence to Kill and On Her Majesty’s Secret Service–leading up to the Skyfall mission which is only available as post-launch DLC.

Here’s the official synopsis for the game:
