The long in the oven XCOM FPS has been transformed into a third person shooter. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, as it’s now known, also actually has a release date, believe it or not, the 23rd of August, in Case you’re wondering.

The game developed by Bioshock 2 developer, 2K Marin is a prequel set in the 60’s that reveals the beginning of XCOM. While it has a larger focus on action, the tactical roots of the series have not been forgotten, so there’s decision making and permanent deaths for your squad members, which should help to set it apart in a highly populated genre.
