First DLC for The Bureau will be 360 exclusive

With only two months to go until the launch of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, you may have been concerned about publisher 2K’s silence on the subject of downloadable content. Relax! The tactical shooter will indeed receive DLC, 2K announced today, and you’ll surely be thrilled to hear the first is exclusive to Xbox 360.

XCOM’s DLC will be "narrative-driven", 2K said in the announcement. Beyond that, we don’t know what it is or when it’ll be coming or how much it’ll cost. Or, indeed, whether the Xbox-exclusive DLC is simply a timed exclusive. Expect more details as the marketing schedule deems appropriate.

"The alternate 1962 universe that we’ve created for The Bureau is vast and there are many more stories to tell about the early days of XCOM," 2K Marin development director Morgan Gray said in today’s DLC announcement. "We’re excited that our stories will provide a new perspective on the war effort, much like how our critically acclaimed Minvera’s Den DLC for BioShock 2 allowed us to present a unique perspective of Rapture."

Ooh, wouldn’t it be nice if The Bureau’s DLC does actually go all Minerva’s Den? 2K Marin’sBioShock 2 DLC told a beautiful standalone story with new characters, showing a new side of Rapture and, well, perhaps surpassing the core game’s story. While the main folks behind Minerva’s Den went indie to make Gone Home, DLC following its lead could be quite pleasing.

More DLC comes in the form of an extra side-mission named ’Codebreakers’ as a pre-order bonus, which’ll see you investing a key communications facility that’s fallen quiet (alien troubles, I’d wager). I would be surprised if that isn’t later sold separately too. And you can get an exclusive Light Plasma Pistol weapon for pre-ordering from GameStop.
