It might be turning 25 this year, but N64 classic GoldenEye 007 is still as relevant now as it was all the way back in 1997. That's largely because evidence continues to stack up that the iconic James Bond game will be getting the remaster treatment to celebrate its 25th birthday. While that still hasn't been officially confirmed, there is a new documentary all about GoldenEye coming later this month.
Directed by Drew Roller, GoldenEra will celebrate a title that remains on so many people's best-ever lists by taking a deep dive into how exactly it came to be. Exploring how a very young Rare team in the UK happened upon a massive license, and some of those who worked on the game are featured in the doc. GoldenEra will also include unique perspectives from journalists who covered the game at the time, and some of those aforementioned fans who believe it to be one of the best to this day.
“GoldenEye 007 wasn't just an obsession for me in the late 1990s; it inspired my career,” Roller said (via Eurogamer). “It didn't just influence who I am – through speaking to so many game industry experts, it's clear it informed a lot of other careers.”
“The game went on to shape titles that have become phenomena of popular culture, such as Call of Duty and Halo. Equally, GoldenEye 007 introduced design conventions now standard in countless successful titles.” GoldenEye's influence is plain to see across the entire industry. However, if you're looking for a game that pulls almost everything from the James Bond title, check out Agent 64: Spies Never Die. A demo for the homage to GoldenEye is available on Steam right now, with a full launch coming later in 2022.
As for that GoldenEye remaster, the latest indicator pointing to its imminent arrival came via a list of Xbox achievements that surfaced online. Some expected the game to be unveiled during the Xbox showcase at Summer Game Fest, but no luck. For now, you'll have to rely on Agent 64 and GoldenEra to get your GoldenEye fix. The documentary will be streaming on Altitude.Film and other digital platforms from June 27, 2022.
