James Bond: Blood Stone will be released in the UK on 5th November, Activision has confirmed.

It'll launch on the same day as Wii and DS shooter GoldenEye 007.

Blood Stone is created by Project Gotham Racing and Blur developer Bizarre Creations. It's for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.

It features a mixture of third-person, cover-based shooting and vehicle pursuits. Vehicles, in this case, being cars and speedboats. Time can be slowed to accommodate head shots, as is the modern gaming way.

There's an entirely original story written by Bond screenwriter Bruce Feirstein. This follows 007 as he jets around the world in pursuit of a terrorist suicide group. There's a focus on the diamond trade, too. Settings include Athens, Istanbul, Monaco and Bangkok.

Richard Jacques is doing the music. Daniel Craig is voicing James Bond and Judi Dench will be M. Singer Joss Stone's in it – she plays a posh version of Paris Hilton. For reals.

Steve Hill went hands-on in September.
