Reminder: The Bureau: XCOM Declassified launches on Friday

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

By on August 20, 2013 at 4:44 pm

2K have released what will presumably be the last of their trailers for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, which launches in Australia on Friday.

The Bureau has had a bit of a troubled past; it was first unveiled to the public as simply XCOM, and FPS set in the 50′s and one which pitted you against bizarre, monolithic geometric aliens. It’s since become a third-person, squad-based tactical shooter with (ironically) more familiar aliens, and a focus on ‘erasing the truth’.

We’ve gone hands-on with it a few times now, check out our impressions here and here. Now, though, we’re playing through the PC version as we speak, and should have our review of the game up for you very shortly. Stay tuned.

I’ve been burned on pre-orders of late. I’ll be defiantly leaving this one for a while to see how it pan’s out.

 

All pre order keyed and pre loaded :D

What sucks though is i’ve also just got 7 days to die ,choices choices :(

 

Game’s getting utterly thrashed in reviews, not overly surprised honestly.

 

Yeah there hasn’t been a good review yet.

Seems 2K didn’t know what game they were making after they changed it from the FPS game and ended up with an unpolished below average third person shooter with the xcom name attached apparently.
