You only live once in The Bureau: XCOM Declassified

2K Games puts the yo in #yolo with the latest trailer for its alien-hunting game.
The Bureau Yolo

Everyone's favourite Internet meme highlights the permanent death situation in the upcoming strategy game The Bureau: XCOM Declassified.

I never saw Paris!

YOLO, which stands for you only live once, is a popular reference that appears mostly on social networks as the hash tag #yolo. Though the term is mostly used to tell people to seize the day, 2K Games has cleverly turned the meme to remind gamers that in The Bureau, a misinformed decision by a sloppy leader can be fatal.

Watch the hilarious scenes as the squad commander sends his yolo-screaming troops into a deadly minefield.  As cruel as this sounds, I got a good chuckle when the lieutenant ran right into the loving arms of the Muton. But be warned, your squad's demise is only the tip of the iceberg if you make light of your decisions. On the bright side, your deceased agents won't have to live through an oppresive regime by an alien overlord.

The Bureau will be available on Windows PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 from 20th August.
