Revived XCOM shooter has new name, perspective

After a week of teases, 2K Games has officially announced The Bureau: XCOM Declassified--the game formerly known as just XCOM.

When introduced in 2010, XCOM was a first-person shooter set in the 1960s. The Bureau takes the same setting, but is now a tactical third-person cover-based shooter. "Set in 1962 at the height of the Cold War, The Bureau tells the origin story of the clandestine XCOM organization’s first encounter with a mysterious and devastating enemy," 2K’s press release details.

 

Unlike Enemy Unknown, The Bureau will be a narrative-driven experience that centers around special agent William Carter. However, in XCOM fashion, you’ll be able to bring in squadmates and command them through tactical gameplay. As is iconic for the franchise, perma-death is a big part of the game, meaning squadmates will be permanently gone should you lose them in battle.

The Bureau will be available on PC, PlayStation 3, and Xbox 360 on August 20th as a full retail game. Pre-orders will receive a special "Codebreakers" side-mission, where Agent Carter must investigate a communications facility.

Here’s the first trailer of the new XCOM. It has no gameplay whatsoever.
