"A smartly turned-out squad-based cover shooter..."

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 a 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.

Uncover the Mystery

Fight through the streets of 1960's America as you uncover the declassified truth behind mankind's first enemy invasion.

Tactical Combat

Use your strategy to your advantage: enter Battle Focus to slow down time and execute your next move, commanding your squad with a variety of tactical actions to turn the tide in your favor.

Strategic Reflexes

Turn an enemy misstep into your strategic advantage. Give tactical commands on the fly to outsmart the enemy and make split-second decisions to save the lives of your squad.

Be the Field Leader

As William Carter, a highly intelligent special agent, call the shots and pull the trigger. Formulate the plan of action, execute well-timed ambushes and flank your attackers to obliterate the threat.

No Second Chances

Pay the price for mistakes - permadeath will make you value your squad mates more than ever, and make losing one of them all the more painful.

Customization that Counts

Train each of your squad mates into unique specializations, allowing for a dynamic combination of skills to compliment your play style.
