The Aston Martin DB5 will forever remain the signature car of the James Bond series, which is why we're excited to see its belated return in the next Bond film Skyfall. While it had a brief appearance in Casino Royale, we haven't seen it take on a proper action sequence since Pierce Brosnan got behind the wheel in Goldeneye against an elusive lady in a Ferrari F355.
This is set to change in Skyfall, which reprises the DB5 back as Bond's primary car and we wouldn't have it any other way. A new video blog, featuring director Sam Mendes, recounts this momentous occassion, discussing what the return of the iconic DB5 signifies for Skyfall as well as providing some brief snippets of behind the scenes footage showing the DB5 in action in scenes filmed for Skyfall.
We're hoping the DB5 will see some action in the final film - it's known that a car chase will occur in Skyfall, but it seems the DB5 will have a poignant role at the end of the film as a a possible throwback to the classic Goldfinger: "There’s something about the last part of the movie which is deliberately, very consciously could have taken part in 1962," Mendes reminisces. Notice too that the registration plate matches that of the original DB5 from Goldfinger - coincidence?
Apparently the beta is locked at 30 fps on PC. I really hope the full PC release is unlocked because 30 fps may be a deal breaker for me. Admittedly though some games are more playable than others at 30 fps, unfortunately didn't get into the beta so I don't know what it plays like.
Every car in AC is so unique and feels so natural that it's genuinely exciting when we see something new. I look forward to testing this and the eagle eyed will have spotted it racing round an as yet unreleased Spa.
Is 3 cars enough for a pack? Is £1 per car worth it? Hmm it feels like 5-6 would have made for a better selection, I hope to test these out next week.
Just a simply good bye fix then. Now the focus on GT7, lets hope we see that in late 2015, though 2016 still looks more likely.
Yes I'm sure we'll see wet weather tyres implemented on a later build, either way it looks stunning so far and I look forward to testing wet conditions more when they improve the frame rate for triple screens.
