Before releasing that ridiculous YOLO trailer earlier this week, 2K Games had been steadily putting out live-action teasers for the upcoming The Bureau: XCOM Declassified. Several of them featured Dominic Monaghan of Lord of the Rings and Lost fame.
Today, 2K released the latest live-action teaser for The Bureau. This one does not star Monaghan, and instead focuses on the main character of the video game, a special agent William Carter. The agent has captured a prisoner, that can only be assumed to be an extraterrestrial. Carter can be seen using a few enhanced interrogation techniques on the prisoner, attempting to gain information on the alien invasion:
Hopefully once the game releases all of these cryptic live-action sequences will make some sort of sense. For now, they just come off as strange, violent, and a bit creepy.
The Bureau: XCOM Declassified will launch on August 20. The game is a third-person shooter set in the 60s that features some tactical elements similar to last year’s XCOM: Enemy Unknown.
