XCOM becomes Declassified
4/26/2013 5:38:00 AM
You know that XCOM FPS that pretty much no one liked except for a few here and there? It's been a long time since we heard anything about that game and XCOM: Enemy Unknown has been such a great success that I think many folks forgot about it, Well, it's going to finally be released this August 20th as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified and it's not an FPS anymore.
2K Marin is taking it and making it a third person squad based game set in the 60s. As a member of the Bureau, you're going to be trying to defend Earth against these alien invasions while keeping the American public in the dark about their existence. Yes, like past XCOM games, you'll have squad mates that can permanently die, so I wouldn't get too attached to them.
The Bureau is going to launch on the PC, 360, and PS3, but no word yet on next generation consoles as they said they are concentrating on the current generation for now. Let's hope this long wait is worth it.
