N64’s GoldenEye Is (Probably) Coming to XBox

4 Minute Read
Jan 3 2022

Thanks to some achievement hunters, we have some solid evidence to suggest 007 is coming to modern consoles. Will we get Goldeneye on XBox?

Few things get classic gamers hyped like the 007 intro. I mean, that guitar alone shreds so much harder than it needs to.

Fast forward 25 years (it’s true, sorry) and we have some clues that GoldenEye 007 is coming to Xbox, thanks to some achievements that have populated the system. This is perhaps for the anniversary of the game, but we can only speculate.

However, what we do know is the achievement list has been found and posted, which you can see for yourself, or scroll to the bottom for the whole list.  There’s a total of 55 achievements worth 1,000 GamerScore with one of them being a secret achievement. While I won’t spoil it, if you do figure it out, remind me to never play multiplayer with you.

The achievement list dropped Jan 1st and with no warning or anything. So we have very little to work with in terms of information.  It’s worth noting this is different from the XBLA GoldenEye 007 remake that leaked last February.

Goldeneye on XBox: Riding That Hype Tank

Personally, I’m really excited for this. As a 90’s Kid™ myself I played a ton of GoldenEye 007 growing up. However, I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but N64’s GoldenEye controls are so bad. At least from a modern perspective. At the time, somehow we managed. But since it’s getting ported to a modern console I’m very hyped to finally play with two control sticks. It’ll be a game changer.

But with Halo finally out and 007 on the way, I can only stand and wonder what game from my childhood will be making a triumphant return next.
