The Bureau’s new DLC is a prequel to the main story.
Earlier today on the The Bureau: XCOM Declassified developer blog, designer Harley White-Wiedow shed some insight on what we can expect from the upcoming XCOM Declassified DLC, Hangar 6 R&D. Hangar 6 R&D will act as a sort of prequel to the actual in-game events of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, taking place immediately before the alien invasion begins.
Players will take on the role of Agent DaSilva and his team, as they are infected with a specific drug, and thrust into combat with an agent team who has been infect with a different drug, the Sleepwalker pathogen.
According to White-Wiedow, Hangar 6 R&D was an opportunity to explore a different element of the 60’s vibe that the main game incorporates. While the overall tone remains the same, the focus is shifted onto the subject of military experimentation with psychic and psychotropic drugs.
As far as game play goes, Hangar 6 R&D takes all of the most fun tactical elements of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified and “serves them up on a platter” for gamers. There will be plenty of skin-of-the-teeth combat situations to look forward to.
The Hangar 6 R&D DLC will be available on Xbox 360 starting October 8th.
