Remember “GoldenEye 007”? Of course you do.
It was one of the most popular games on the Nintendo 64, which many of us grew up with.
But it came out 20 years ago, and the game’s visuals don’t look quite as stunning as they once did. So one intrepid student artist decided to give the game a makeover, taking “GoldenEye’s” iconic “Facility” level and turning it into the gorgeous level you’ll see if you head with us below.
'Facility' was one of 'GoldenEye's' most memorable single-player campaign levels, and could also be played in multiplayer mode.
But it never looked this good. These scenes are the work of 3D modelling student Jude Wilson at Sheffield Hallam University. Jude actually just graduated with a Masters in game design! Congrats Jude!
Wilson re-created the level using 'Unreal Engine 4,' which is a software environment for creating games that was designed by the studio that created the blockbuster series 'Gears of War.'
In the original game, James Bond descended from air vents into the bathroom at the top of the stairs where he'd pounce on an unsuspecting Russian soldier who was using the toilet.
In the original game's multiplayer level, there were countless firefights fought in these relatively constricted rooms.
These details may seem small, but they're representative of the big differences between modern games and those of the late 1990s.
