Third-Person XCOM Shooter Rebranded As The Bureau: XCOM Declassified


We here at Twinfinite LOVED XCOM: Enemy Unknown. There was the playthrough of the game with the soldiers named after people on staff and it had a place on many of our GOTY lists. A first person shooter version was announced years ago but shelved by 2K Games after unsuccessful reboots of Shadowrun and Syndicate, until now. The success of XCOM: EU has to figure in their decision to revisit this interpretation of the series. With a third person perspective and a setting similar to that of the hit TV series Mad Men, The Bureau seems to be a depiction of the first iteration of the XCOM project. If the gameplay is as tight and interesting as last year’s strategy game, 2K Games will have another hit on their hands. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified releases on all major consoles August 20th.
