Have you heard of The Bureau: XCOM Declassified? Even if you didn’t, you are probably familiar with the X-COM series. The Bureau is one of the games in that franchise, and you can get it for free at Humble Bundle for a limited time. There are no other conditions to fulfill except to be registered on their website. If you are familiar with the HB concept, you know that they occasionally offer games for free or at a very affordable cost. However, all those promotions are time-limited, which is why you should hurry.
The Bureau was published in 2013 by 2K Games. While it belongs to the shooter genre, it’s not a shoot-em-up release. Instead, it is a tactical shooter you play from the third person. The game is solely single-player, but those who love solo campaigns will undoubtedly be intrigued by the depth of the story.
Cold War is the inspiration behind the plot. The game is set in 1962, while John Fitzgerald Kennedy was still the United States’ president. The American people were then frightened of a nuclear war emerging with the Russians. The government has decided to prepare for an adequate response to this threat, which is why they established a top-secret organization. Although they were right about the invasion expecting them, they were wrong about the enemy. It was aliens that were invading the US turf instead of Russians.
The development of the game did take some time. Everything started in 2010 when it was announced, but the release followed three years later after several delays. During that period, the developers even changed it from being first-person to a third-person shooter. Regardless, what matters is the final product, and The Bureau XCOM Declassified can offer you a lot of fun. After all, you get $20 release for free, so why wouldn’t you try it?
If you purchase the game for free, you will also get a 10% discount to buy a monthly subscription for Humble Bundle. In case you still haven’t signed up for the website, there is a free H1Z1 copy waiting for you when you do. HB subscriptions offer you a bundle of games each month for just $12. And we are talking about first-rate releases, such as The Long Dark or Quantum Break, which are on promotion this month. You can take a look at all the details about the monthly deal on the official website.
