Activision’s movie mash-up 007 Legends will boast a couple of exclusive multiplayer characters on PlayStation 3, the publisher has announced. Those of you that purchase the first-person shooter on Sony’s system will be able to play as Skyfall characters Eve (played by the actress Naomie Harris in the movie) and Patrice (Ola Rapace). Each character will come augmented with unique abilities.

“To re-create these two characters, we were given special access to the wardrobe and armoury departments of the film and took high-resolution digital scans of the actor’s likenesses to ensure that what you see in the game is as close to their real-life appearance as possible,” explained Eurocom’s Rob Matthews on the PlayStation Blog.

The events in Skyfall will bookmark 007 Legends’ campaign, with missions based on Goldfinger, On Her Majesty’s Secret Service, Moonraker, License to Kill, and Die Another Day fleshing out the rest of the plot. We’re eager to see how everything ties together. The game’s due out this week in Europe and North America.
