Agent Cole’s Fate Revealed in New XCOM Video

Jason McDonald

A few days ago, 2K Games asked the world to decide the fate of Agent Ennis Cole.  The man was, understandably, in a bad place.  Not only were aliens harassing the Earth, but they also horribly murdered his family.  By the end of the previous video we were left two options: The bottle or the gun.

I wasn’t sure whether “the gun” meant suicide or revenge, so I went with alcohol.  When in doubt, always go alcohol.  Apparently I wasn’t the only one as “the bottle” won out by a narrow margin, receiving 51% of the votes. Now Cole’s fate has been revealed in the latest video.  However, the ending makes it seem as if his story is far from over.  Perhaps will learn more this Friday?

The year is 1962, JFK is President and the Cold War has the nation gripped by fear- but a far more powerful enemy than communism is threatening America.  Known only to a select few, a top-secret government unit called “The Bureau” begins investigating and concealing a series of mysterious attacks by an otherworldly enemy.  As special agent William Carter, players call the shots, pull the trigger and lead their squad in a gripping third-person tactical shooter set within high-stakes, covert war to protect humanity.  The Bureau’s mission is clear- survive, adapt, and overcome the enemy threat.  The Bureau has been erasing the truth for decades.  The time will come for the truth to be revealed.

“The Bureau: XCOM Declassified”  is being developed by 2K Marin and will hit XBox 360, PS3, and PC on August 20, 2013.
