Pre-order The Bureau: XCOM Declassified – Get a pistol and side-mission19 Jun 2013
2K have detailed pre-order bonuses for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified which include a special side-mission and in-game item.
The “Codebreakers” side mission, which was actually revealed back in April, follows the story of a top secret government communications facility responsible for intercepting and decoding the enemy’s transmissions going radio-silent. Special Agent Carter needs to bring it back online.
The special Light Plasma Pistol in-game item is a protoype light pistol which fires condensed bolts of plasma and boasts a vastly improved rate-of-fire.
2K are also keen to point out that once the game ships there will be more DLC added:
“We take great pride in our track record of providing high-quality post-release content for our games,” said Christoph Hartmann, president of 2K. “We will continue to expand the XCOM universe by telling original stories set in the paranoia-drenched Cold War era of The Bureau.”
“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,” said Morgan Gray, development director at 2K Marin. “We’re excited that our stories will provide a new perspective on the war effort, much like how our critically acclaimed Minvera’s Den DLC for BioShock 2 allowed us to present a unique perspective of Rapture.”
The pre-orders are available through GAME here in the UK.
Finally, here’s the new Battlefocus trailer.
