The Bureau's Launch Trailer Tells You To Survive, Adapt, Win

The red phone won't be ringing; you're on your own.

Welcome to The Bureau: XCOM Declassified's happy, smiling launch trailer, where everything is wonderful and aliens haven't invaded at ... well, no, that would be a lie. The next war's already started, and it wasn't the war anyone was expecting. Castro must be upset to have had his missile crisis upstaged by Sectoids, but he's probably already been turned into cigars by this point. Survive, adapt and win are your new orders because, if you don't, we all get to find out what life's like under alien rule.

The Bureau is 2K's team-based shooter not-quite follow up to XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and - though it had a rocky start - it's been world-building with a series of fun videos, preparing the way for an alien invasion of its own. Now we get to see a taste of what that invasion might look like, but it won't be long before the real deal's in our hands. Will it live up to expectations? Well, if it doesn't, expect an earth shattering kaboom.

This one's due for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC August 2013; the 20th in North America, the 23rd in those naughty PAL nations.

So... any news on if this is good? I kinda want to preorder so I can get the bonus stuff on GMG, but looking at how much of a dumb decision that is recently/always I'd like some opinions on it first.

Well I will find out if this game is hopefully good tonight when I pick it up at a midnight release. Looking forward to playing it though it looks interesting.

There are no Oceans on the Internet so I WILL be playing this game tomorrow.

Maybe one day people will wake up and realize that padding their sales figures by shifting release dates is stupid.

On the flip side, you get to read launch day reviews and then decide to get the pre-order stuff afterwards :) it's the one advantage we got, so do use it! I know I do.
