The Bureau: XCOM Declassified Trailer Is Very, Very…Vague

So the long-awaited XCOM reboot has been reworked and re-branded as The Bureau: XCOM Declassified .

It seems like an interesting premise, especially in regards to the setting and story. Now, publisher 2K Games has released another trailer to whet our alien appetite.

It was dubbed a "gameplay trailer" in the press release this morning but in truth, it's more of a teaser. There's a whole lot of government cover-up going on, and that includes blacked-out lines of text and even black bars over faces and eyes. Obviously, the focal point of the game centers on the US government locating an otherworldly presence in a fictional alternate reality. Then, of course, all hell breaks loose and that's where we'll start playing.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is scheduled to release for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and PC on August 20.
