Activision has released a new trailer for the upcoming James Bond adventure Blood Stone. Due to MGM's money troubles, the 23rd Bond movie is stuck in development, therefore Blood Stone will not be a tie-in, but rather will be a standalone story – the next chapter in the Bond saga.
The game, a third-person shooter, will star Daniel Craig as 007 and British singer Joss Stone as socialite Nicole Hunter, as they hunt down a missing researcher. The game will feature a global conspiracy involving the UK's secret biochemical weapons program, and a story stretching across five different locations, including Istanbul (as featured in the new trailer), Athens, Monaco, Bangkok and Siberia.
Project Gotham Racing and Blur developer Bizarre Creations are at the helm after Treyarch's entirely average Quantum of Solace tie-in in 2008, and Bizarre's experience in the racing genre leads to high hopes for the car chase sections of the game. As for the third-person action elements, they have very little experience though the trailers look promising.
James Bond: Blood Stone is currently set for release in the first quarter of 2011.
