We all know it - the government is hiding things from us! Roswell, Area 51; it's so obvious, aliens are real man, they just won't tell us!

If you want you chance to get in on the cover up (and look dashing while doing so) you'll want to try the latest XCOM game; if you can run it. Find out in The Bureau: XCOM Declassified System Requirements...

Given the gameplay we've seen, it's quite surprising how high the recommended requirements are; but the minimums are suitably low which makes reasonable sense for a third person strategy. This is likely very similar to the popular XCom: Enemy Unknown.

The Bureau has a slightly different take on the XCOM style of strategy; time will continue to flow although you can always pause to give orders to your squad mates. Make sure you stay in cover though; the aliens can and will kill you, and once a man goes down, he's not getting back up.
