If you are like me and grew up playing PC shooters, then the fascination with Goldeneye 007 won’t be as strong as it is for our console brethren, who had that instead of Duke Nukem 3D or Quake. Having played Rare‘s shooter as an adult, I found it entertaining nonetheless, so I’m quite happy to see developers Replicant d6 working on Agent 64: Spies Never Die, a first person shooter that looks like a beautiful marriage between Goldeneye 007 and TimeSplitters. Don’t believe me? There’s a trailer embedded just below this paragraph so you can see for yourself.
A retro FPS inspired by classic British shooters such as Goldeneye and TimeSplitters. Explore new locales, accomplish varied objectives and fight against state-of-the-art 1997 enemy AI. A work of love by a dedicated fan.
The Agency is sending you on missions all around the world, in order to save it!
Each story mission is a self contained environment where you have to accomplish varied objectives, such as hacking terminals, steal secret plans, free civilian hostages and much more. All the while fighting armed guards in epic shootouts.
Be Agent number 64, the most elite operative the world has ever seen. An absolute legend!
Agent 64: Spies Never Die doesn’t have a firm release date yet, but it should hit Steam Early Access this year.
