2K Games have revealed the official pre-order bonus that will be made available to gamers who pre-order the forthcoming The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. Coming to Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is currently set for release next month.
Players who pre-order The Bureau: XCOM Declassified through any of the participating retailers will receive a bonus campaign side-mission called “Codebreakers.” In this mission, a top secret government communications facility responsible for intercepting and decoding the enemy’s transmissions has gone radio-silent. In a desperate attempt to turn the tides of the secret war, Special Agent Carter and his squad must make contact with personnel in order to bring the facility back online, eliminate any threats, and decrypt the mysterious code.
In addition to the Codebreakers side-mission, those who pre-order The Bureau: XCOM Declassified through high street videogames specialist retailer GAME will receive the Light Plasma Pistol as an exclusive in-game item. Early Bureau research into outsider weapons technology has yielded promising results in the form of a prototype light plasma pistol. Not as bulky as its Outsider predecessor, this compact weapon fires condensed bolts of plasma and boasts a vastly improved rate-of-fire, giving players an early edge in the secret war for humanity’s survival.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is rated 16 by PEGI and will be available on 23rd August 2013, with a suggested retail price (SRP) of £49.99 GBP on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details on The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.
