We've been devoting a lot of coverage to The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, and for good reason. What started as a seemingly generic first-person shooter has blossomed into an enjoyable third-person adaptation of XCOM's traditional, challenging strategic play.

In addition to our tease and contest that we posted earlier (there's still time to win one of the XCOM lighters), 2K Games has revealed a new behind the scenes trailer with Alyssa Finley of 2K Marin and Nico Bihary of 2K Games. The pair discuss setting The Bureau in 1962, permadeath, and the importance of strategic planning.

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified arrives on August 20 for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
