New X-Com Video is Also An Alternate Reality Game
Check out this new video for the upcoming shooter.
2K Games has gone ahead and released a new teaser video/alternate reality game for its upcoming re-imaging of the classic X-Com as a shooter, The Bureau: X-Com Declassified. Starring Lord of the Rings and Lost star Dominic Monhagan, the video shows him being presented with a choice to either take the gun, or to take bottle with some pills in it. Presumably, it a choice for what kind of a death he wants to choose for himself.
Of course, for the casual layman, this has absolutely nothing to do with the upcoming game, and tells him nothing about it. Essentially, this is just preaching to the choir. Moreover, of course, like many, I still am not convinced that X-Com needs to (or should) be reimagined as a shooter at all, particularly in the wake of the success of last year’s X-Com: Enemy Unknown.
The Bureau launches on Xbox 360, PS3, and Steam in August. Stay tuned to GamingBolt for more coverage.
