‘The Bureau: XCOM Declassified’ drops a live action video filled with clowns, aliens, and Easter Eggs

2K Games has just dropped an eerie new live action trailer for The Bureau: XCOM Declassified to follow up the first installment in the series, “The Burn Room“. This one introduces us to a children’s TV show host called Orbit the Clown, who has an uninvited guest drop by. 

By the way, the puppet being used, Morse the Martian, is actually available for sale on eBay right now. Proceeds from the sale will be donated to charity.  

The video is also packed full of Easter Eggs. Some are obvious, like the website 2knov.com shown in the final screen (2K is located in Novato, CA). Others less so, like the father in the familiar looking father in the picture frame, who also may be mentioned via his Twitter handle during the emergency test screen, or Morse the Martian’s Morse code message. There are several others as well, so watch closely and look for more videos like it in the future. 

The game is set to be released on August 20th, 2013 for Xbox 360 and PS3. For more details, head over to our fresh new hands on preview.
