New trailer for upcoming shooter set in the beloved XCOM universe.
I’ll be honest, I don’t even know why I’m being made to cover The Bureau: XCOM Declassified as much as I am. As I have made clear plenty of times before, the game’s existence bothers me, and rubs me off the wrong way.
On the other hand, the more I see of the game, the less outright opposed to it I become. I still don’t like the idea of a shooter based in the XCOM universe, but at least now I can see how it might work, and perhaps even more importantly, how it might be a good game on its own merits.
The newest trailer is admittedly not one of those videos that have had me hyped for the game even slightly at all. It’s a rather bizarre live action trailer, and it sort of feels like one of those old, grainy science fiction shows about alien invasions. At the very least, it gets the job done, I guess.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified releases in two weeks on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC.
