Team 2K has released the fifth installment of their ongoing video series for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.  In video four, Agent Cole set out to avenge his wife and son who were killed during the incident in Pima, New Mexico.  The Chase shows Cole (played by Lost / LOTR alum Dominic Monaghan) chasing after his prey through a field…but in XCOM, things are never that simple.    If you’ve not kept up with The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, here’s a nibble about the game:

The year is 1962. JFK is President and the Cold War has the nation gripped by fear – but a far more powerful and insidious 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, call the shots, pull the trigger and lead your squad in a gripping third-person tactical shooter set within a high-stakes, covert war to protect humanity. The Bureau’s mission is clear – survive, adapt and overcome the enemy threat to protect the citizens from the truth.
