The Bureau: XCOM Declassified trailer is more tactics than shooter

The Bureau: XCOM Declassified looks like a sharp period piece--sort of Mad Men meets X-Files--but what makes it an XCOM game? Just in case you were still skeptical about its series bona fides, 2K Marin has released a new trailer showing off the tactical options.
The "Call the Shots" trailer features the "Battle Focus" feature, showing our dapper hero winning an engagement without ever personally getting his hands dirty. Instead, he uses the radial menu to order his squad mates, and at times it looks a whole lot like Enemy Unknown as seen from street level. We pointed out these tactical options in our preview, but as they say, seeing is believing.
