Hi there! This is James Clarendon, Lead Systems Designer on The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, due out on PlayStation 3 from 23rd August. For those of you who want to get a head start on how to build and maintain your roster of agents, I’m here to provide some insight into how these systems work, and how you can maximise your strategies in the field.
As field agent William Carter, you take the role of squad commander, making important choices as to how you and your agents progress in their careers and achieve certain victory. Bringing low-ranking agents into a mission can easily spell disaster, so you’ve got to take the time to invest in and develop each squad member for the challenges ahead.
First, the basics: you can keep a roster of eight agents, and two of these will join you in the field to form your squad.
