On Her Majesty's Secret Service is joining Moonraker as one of the six James Bond films to feature in video game retrospective 007 Legends.
That will put James Bond on the trail of machiavellian mastermind Ernst Blofeld, the cat-stroking coordinator of a global terrorist threat.
It's a controversial choice, given that OHMSS was George Lazenby's only appearance as Bond, but it gives players an opportunity to explore the Swiss Alps, home to Blofeld's lair.
The British agent is unleashed in pursuit of both Blofeld and Bond's kidnapped squeeze Tracy, herself daughter of criminal chief Marc-Ange Draco.
The Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC game is being made by Eurocom, who produced the previous year's GoldenEye Reloaded and, before that, GoldenEye 007 for the Wii -- both adaptations of 1997 legacy title GoldenEye 007.
007 Legends will also contain a Skyfall level, based on the upcoming film, but players will need to wait to receive it as a download.
The game releases October 16 in North America and October 19 in European regions, both in advance of the film's late October and early November worldwide cinematic debuts.
