The endlessly delayed XCOM shooter, not to be confused with the recent turn based revival, has undergone something of an overhaul.
Re-announced this afternoon as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, it will no longer be a first person game, but rather a squad based third person shooter. As reported by Destructoid, the revamped title will retain its Wonder Years setting and serve as an origin story for the series. The announcement was accompanied by a live action trailer offering a brief glimpse at what appears to be extraterrestrial tech.
Players will take on the role of William Carter, a government agent drawn into an conspiracy involving political tensions between the world’s great powers, as well as the small matter of alien visitations.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is set to arrive on PC in August.
