Before X Com: Enemy Unknown showed how turn-based strategy games should be done on console, a squad-based shooter was in the works.
It was known simply as X Com, and was in development at 2K Marin and (for a time) 2K Australia, now having been re-launched as The Bureau: X Com Declassified.
The trailer for the new ‘refined vision’ of X Com is shot entirely in live action, and shows a dramatic stride through a shadowy bureau and a mysterious appearance of a UFO in the daytime sky in middle America.
It remains to be seen what the new direction for the game actually entails, but 2K has dropped a 23rd August release date for Australia and New Zealand, so we likely won’t have to wait long to find out.
