Nintendo and Microsoft have announced that GoldenEye 007 will be coming to Nintendo Switch Online and Xbox Game Pass on January 27.
The long-awaited remaster of the legendary James Bond game GoldenEye 007 is finally coming to Xbox and Nintendo Switch. The game, which offers 4K resolution, will be added to Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo Switch Online on January 27. Developed faithfully 25 years after its debut, the N64 legend will offer online play and smoother frame rates.
The game will also have support for split-screen local multiplayer. All members of the Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack and Xbox subscription service will be able to download GoldenEye 007 for free this Friday. On the other hand, the game cannot be purchased separately on Nintendo Switch systems, and once your Nintendo Switch Online + Expansion Pack subscription expires, you will also lose access to the remaster version.
GoldenEye 007 Release Date Announced January 27
It’s not entirely clear whether GoldenEye 007 will be available for purchase on Xbox platforms without downloading it via Xbox Game Pass. Additionally, it’s worth noting that only the Switch version will feature online multiplayer. Therefore, Xbox players will only be able to experience local multiplayer.
In 2007, Microsoft developed a remaster version for the Xbox 360, but shelved the game due to a license dispute even though the project was completed. With the announcement made in September 2022, it was stated that GoldenEye 007, which was renewed in accordance with today’s technologies, will come to both Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo Switch. The game will be released on January 27.
