Alyssa Finlay, VP of Product Development at 2K Marin talks us through the setting and style choices for their upcoming third-person tactical shooter The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
. Unlike other XCOM
games that were set in the near future, The Bureau
explores the initial alien invasion in the 1960s; how it all began. The developers wanted to capture the spirit of the time including character design, architecture, the sounds of the decade and more.
The trailer also shows off a bit of gameplay and the strategic decisions you'll need to make. You'll have the ability to slow the action down a bit and plan your next move to gain the best tactical advantage.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified
is out August 20th in North America and August 23rd in Europe.
