Here’s a new trailer for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified that has a slightly different tone from the previous vids released by 2K.

Alright it’s completely different, outlining the perils of permadeath by showing a crappy commander throwing his team into vulnerable positions as they repeatedly shout, “YOLO!”

Have a look below. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is out on August 20th in North America and August 23rd in Europe.

Endless scrapping and then rebuilding and now this. Worrying that they seem to have absolutely no sense of identity. "It's an FPS. No wait it's a slightly different FPS. No actually it's a digital squad based game. No it's a full retail tactical 3rd person Mass Effect style shooter. We're deadly serious. No wait, Yolo!"

I honestly thought that scamp Lee Bradley was up to his tricks again and joking about the YOLO thing. Sadly I was incorrect in that assumption. Just what the heck are they going for with this game? Seems like it has a bad case multiple personality disorder.

This game looked really promising back when it was the BioShock style FPS, now after all the changes and restarts it looks like utter garbage!

Dunno why but I actually laughed out loud.

The yolo at 1:20 when he jumps through the window got me.

that was hilarious, If they actually shout YOLO when you give them a crap order, might make it worthwhile on occasion

This is ridiculous LOL The game will be so bad it's funny, but I will definitely spend my money elsewhere. This looks like bargain bin at best.

Also preferred how it looked like last year, back when it was FPS.

If I'm not mistaken, this is a game stop trailer for the game, which means it should not be taken seriously.
Have none of you ever seen one of gamestop's trailer before? Ever?
I remember the last one I saw was for tomb raider, where they had her doing pullups and chasing chickens around.

There's no reason to bash on the game solely for this video taking a different stance from the rest

I guess you can add humour to anything if you really wanted to

Please tell me the above comments are as satirical as the video was?
