TransGaming and 2K's The Bureau: XCOM Declassified is now available for purchase and download at Mac Game Store. Described as a third-person tactical shooter the game lets players experience the origin story of the XCOM organization and its war against invading alien species.

Set in 1962 at the height of the Cold War, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified tells the origin story of the underground XCOM organization and its clandestine war against an imposing alien threat. As a third-person tactical shooter, The Bureau: XCOM Declassified delivers a new experience using the classic XCOM formula by taking players out of the familiar god-like view of strategy games and dropping them into the boots special agent William Carter in the thick of combat. Using Carter’s “Battle Focus” ability, players control squad mates and launch calculated attacks in order to advance and gain the upper edge. As the last line of defense, the player’s every command can mean the difference between life and death for Carter, his squad and mankind.
