The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Exclusive DLC Announced
We’ve heard little about The Bureau: XCOM Declassified since it was first announced, but that hasn’t stopped 2K Games from revealing plans for DLC ahead of the game’s release. The publisher has revealed plans to release an exclusive DLC pack for the Xbox 360, although what it entails has yet to be revealed.
“We take great pride in our track record of providing high-quality post-release content for our games. We will continue to expand the XCOM universe by telling original stories set in the paranoia-drenched Cold War era of The Bureau,” said 2K President Christoph Hartmann in a press release.
Morgan Gray of developer 2K Marin added “The alternate 1962 universe that we’ve created for The Bureau is vast and there are many more stories to tell about the early days of XCOM. We’re excited that our stories will provide a new perspective on the war effort, much like how our critically acclaimed Minerva’s Den DLC for BioShock 2 allowed us to present a unique perspective of Rapture.”
Players who pre-order The Bureau: XCOM Declassified at select retailers will receive access to the Codebreakers DLC, a bonus campaign mission. In Codebreakers, a top secret government communications facility responsible for intercepting and decoding the enemy’s transmissions has gone radio-silent and it’s up to Special Agent Carter and his squad to bring the facility back online, eliminate any threats, and decrypt the mysterious code.
Additionaly, players who pre-order the game through GameStop will receive a Light Plasma Pistol as an exclusive in-game item.
The game is slated for an August 20 release on the PC, Xbox 360 and PS3.
