The third person shooter, based on the classic franchise, rises from the ashes.

Posted By | On 26th, Apr. 2013

Publisher 2K Games and developer 2K Marin have officially unveiled The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, scheduled to release on August 20th for North America and August 23rd for Europe for Xbox 360, PC and PS3. You play as William Carter, an agent of The Bureau during the Cold War in 1962 facing off against the Soviet Union when a new mysterious and powerful enemy awakens.

President of 2K Games Christoph Hartmann, “We’re thrilled about 2K Marin’s refined vision for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. The game has evolved through a creative and iterative development process, and the result is a narrative-driven experience that is smart, engaging, and challenges players to think tactically.”

Though delayed for a long time, 2K Marin apparently has the third person mechanic and Battle Focus, which allows one to make tactical decisions in combat, down pat.

Morgan Gray, creative director at 2K Marin, stated that, “The Bureau tells the story of XCOM’s mysterious beginnings. We’re expanding the universe with a declassified tale of government conspiracy and heroic cover-ups told through third-person tactical gameplay.

“The team has been working hard to leverage core XCOM elements like tactical decision-making and permanent death of squad mates in a purposeful way that makes this a unique tactical shooter,” added Gray. “To that end, The Bureau will challenge players unlike any other third-person tactical shooter.”
