The classic Nintendo 64 game GoldenEye 007 is being remade for Unreal Engine 4, and it looks nothing short of beautiful.
The original game was lauded by critics and fans alike on its release for its genuinely challenging single-player campaign, and for providing huge scope for multiplayer mayhem.
3D artist Ben Colclough, one of the heroes that walk among us, has spent years of hard work using his talents to re-capture the campaign mode of the much-loved game.
Colclough’s project, named GoldenEye 25, is scheduled for release in August 2022, which will coincide with the original game’s 25th anniversary.
It aims to stay loyal to the original map layout and gameplay found within GoldenEye 007, and bring it into the 21st century with a high-definition shine up of its visuals, textures and effects.

And by the looks of a new extended preview, which has recently been released by Colclough on his YouTube channel, the project is working out better than any Bond game fan could have imagined.
The preview shows us a shiny new version of the Silo map and takes us up to the satellite room – and it looks like a dream come true for all first-person-shooter fans.
GoldenEye 25 still has plenty of hurdles to overcome before its scheduled release and Colclough has been quick to remind excited fans of this fact.
Watch the preview in the video below.
On launching his new preview of the project, Colclough said: "This game is a work in progress and there are many unfinished assets."
But we doubt that will dampen anybody’s spirits, especially given that developers of the original GoldenEye 007 seem just as excited about it as anyone else!
Ex-Rare developer David Doak took to Twitter to profess his enthusiasm, calling Colclough’s work "Kyrgyzstantastic!".
And all being well, the game should be available to play on PC for free by 2022. Ben Colclough, the world is not enough to thank you for your service.News Now - Sport News
