007 Legends brings back Goldfinger, Oddjob, and Pussy Galore

007 Legends brings back Goldfinger, Oddjob, and Pussy Galore

You didn't think Activision would be silly enough to forget a Sean Connery-era movie in its Bond mashup game, 007 Legends? Today, the publisher has revealed the last movie to be represented in the upcoming FPS: Goldfinger.

Why, as One of Swords points out, that means a single movie from every Bond actor will be represented! (Although Daniel Craig will play Bond throughout the entire adventure.)
