The PlayStation 3 version of 007 Legends will feature exclusive content unavailable in either the Wii U or Xbox 360 versions, Eurocom has announced.

Both MI6 field agent Eve (played by Naomie Harris) and assassin Patrice (Ola Rapace) from the latest James Bond film Skyfall will be included as multiplayer characters exclusively in the PS3 version.

"To re-create these two characters, we were given special access to the wardrobe and armoury departments of the film and took high-resolution digital scans of the actor's likenesses to ensure that what you see in the game is as close to their real-life appearance as possible," said Eurocom's Rob Matthews on PS Blog.

007 Legends features six missions inspired by six James Bond movies, including Goldfinger, On Her Majesty's Secret Service, Moonraker, Licence to Kill, Die Another Day and, of course, this month's Bond blockbuster Skyfall.

"If you're a keen Bond fan, you’ll have noticed a pattern to the movies that we've adapted for 007 Legends," continued Matthews, "one movie from each of the six actors who've played Bond over the last 50 years. This was a way for us to pay homage to not only the original actors, but also to all of the other cast and crew who've been involved with the various eras of Bond over the last 50 years."

007 Legends launches on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 this Friday, October 19. A Wii U version is due for release in December.

Fair play - it was an honest query. The last 007 game I played was Goldeneye: Rogue Agent (or somesuch) which was... mediocrity personified. Then a 15-minute go with From Russia With Love (also PS2) killed off any desire to ever play a Bond game again... :-/

I'm actually quite looking forward to this, not as my game of choice this holiday season but something I will pick up for Wii U early next year at some point. I loved goldeneye wii mostly becuase of the campaign was very well done, so this is pretty much my shooter of choice coming out soon.

Honest question - is anyone expecting this title to be any more than just a 'passable overly-standardised by-the-numbers FPS'
