I'll admit, I never got into GoldenEye. But a lot of people I know did, and I can remember watching them play on the N64 at a local game store, renting time with the game for some four-player, split-screen mayhem. This was well before the days of Twitch or even widespread online gaming, and it was a blast to play or watch with friends.
Now you can relive those moments -- without having to share your screen -- with a new free-to-play adaptation of the classic James Bond shooter. Created by a dedicated team of fans in Valve's Source Engine, GoldenEye: Source offers updated graphics, with 25 maps, 10 multiplayer modes, and 28 weapons. Many of the original game's iconic locations and weapons are included, but there's no single-player mode. Which isn't that big of a loss, really.
The team behind the project has been working on it for 10 years. While earlier versions have been available -- this is technically GoldenEye Source 5.0 -- this is the biggest update the game has received in three years. Said the project's managing director and lead programmer:
"There is more work to be done, and will no doubt be more unseen hurdles, but with GE:S 5.0 I am confident we’re starting things on the right foot. We look forward to finally playing with the community and getting their thoughts on all of our hard work.
