Epic Video games developer Psyonix says it signed a multi-year cope with MGM and Aston Martin to carry 007 into the automobile sports activities recreation – beginning, in fact, with the ’60s basic made well-known by Goldfinger, however nonetheless occurring Scenes like Skyfall and the approaching No steals time to die.
Will I nonetheless purchase it? Nah – as a result of except for the teaser above this submit, there would not appear to be a lot Bond concerning the Rocket League model apart from the DB5’s historic affiliation with the franchise. I wasn’t anticipating ejection seats, however Psyonix frankly tells me there will not be any of the gimmick animations that would make Bond’s model stand out. Flip these snazzy, secret, auto-rotating license plates right into a easy rocket-powered door? I suppose that is one thing.
I am going to most likely save that cash on Lego’s gadget-filled DB5 mannequin whereas getting nostalgic with these pictures I took of actual Bond automobiles on the London Movie Museum. I’ve subtitled a few of these photos for Gizmodo if you would like, though my submit there has some extra adverts embedded than the final time I noticed it.
