GoldenEye 007 is Coming to Nintendo Switch Online and Xbox Game Pass This Week!

On January 27, Xbox Game Pass and Nintendo Switch Online’s Expansion Pass will finally offer the N64 classic GoldenEye 007. The much-awaited release date was officially revealed via Nintendo’s YouTube page and the Xbox Wire, confirming when gamers may resume playing as James Bond in both single-player and the game’s cherished multiplayer modes.

GoldenEye 007 had just a “coming soon” release window before the two businesses ultimately confirmed a string of leaks and rumors in September last year. While Xbox players can get it for free via Xbox Game Pass, anyone seeking to play the game on Switch will need both Nintendo Switch Online and its Expansion Pass (which includes the N64 digital library).

Only the Switch version will have online multiplayer, making it the first time this feature has been made formally available for the 26-year-old game. This makes the two versions of the game distinct from one another. A remastered edition with new control options, achievements, a 16:9 aspect ratio, and up to 4K Ultra HD resolution will be available for Xbox.

Fans will finally be able to get their hands on GoldenEye 007 later this week after the game’s achievements were listed on both Xbox’s official website and the fan website True Achievements for a long time.
