The Bureau: XCOM Classified reads like a Christmas wish list of things we need in our lives: early 1960s alien invasions, government cover ups, turn based strategy/third person shooter, fedoras, and sharp haircuts were all things we asked for this past December.

2K Games has released this launch trailer for their sort of prequel to last year's hugely successful reboot XCOM: Enemy Unknown, and we dumped DAYS into that game. The fact that we're getting another go in the XCOM universe has us pretty tingly. Watch the new gameplay trailer for more on the story and let us know what you think. The Bureau: XCOM Declassified drops Aug 20 on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
