2K and 2K Marin have announced post-launch downloadable content (DLC) plans for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified that will see the title supported with updates beyond its August release date. The narrative-driven DLC will expand the declassified origin story of the clandestine XCOM organisation and will be available on the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC. The first DLC pack will be available exclusively to Xbox 360 players.
“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.”
“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 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.
