2K Marin Declassifies The Bureau’s Narrative With New XCOM Developer Diary

on August 6, 2013 5:39 PM

2K Marin’s newest developer diary is a behind-the-scenes look at The Bureau: XCOM Declassified‘s narrative, and just how much the characters and settings shape the story.

With the setting in 1962, the era the game takes place in is ripe with conflict. With what is described as a lost of innocence, this is a time where there’s a drastic distrust in government, Kennedy’s Moon speech and the Cuban Missile Crisis, the Civil Rights movement, and more. The video diary, which you can view below, discusses these events as a huge influence to the game’s environments, and a huge boon in shaping the main character, Agent Carter.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is set to release next month on August 23rd to PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. For more details on the game, check out all of our XCOM news coverage.
