Set prior to the events of The Bureau, players take control of new protagonist Agent Nico DaSilva and his squad as they volunteer for a series of secret psycho-medical experiments to save a fellow Bureau agent infected with the “Sleepwalker” pathogen.
Hangar 6 R&D creates skin-of-your-teeth moments that challenge players’ mastery of The Bureau’s core tactical gameplay. The story-driven add-on content further explores the 1960s Cold War vibe by transporting players to an all-new clandestine location known only to Bureau agents as Hangar 6. Along with high-level squad mates and XP rewards, players now have access to even more dangerous weapons, such as the well-known AK-47. Also included is a prototype Microwave Gun that cooks enemies from the inside out. Nasty. Agent DaSilva also has a new series of powers and perks based on his “plant and trigger” bomb abilities that allow players to better utilize the game’s most complex squad tactics.
Hangar 6 R&D is avaiable on Xbox Live for AU$4.95/NZ$6.65. For more information on the DLC and The Bureau: XCOM Declassified, visit the official site and Facebook page. Check out the screenshots below and prepare to combat the Outsider plague once more. Erase the truth.
