The latest trailer for 2K Games’ forthcoming game puts the fate of one of its agents in your hands.  Agent Ennis Cole is obviously wracked with guilt over the events at Pima, but what action will he take?

Dominic Monaghan (the voice actor) adds plenty of emotion to this trailer, but don’t take my word for it.  Here it is:

For those who are unable or unwilling to watch, the video shows Ennis Cole, an agent of The Bureau, writing up his report of the events of the first Pima Incident.  After describing the alien invasion, he recounts those who were killed in the attack.  One of those killed is a young boy who appears to be his son, or somehow related to Agent Cole.  Upon completing his report, Ennis looks down at the typewriter and we are given a choice: #GrabTheBottle or #GrabTheGun.  Yup, you get to decide Agent Cole’s fate.  Voting closes tomorrow, though, so you’d better vote quickly!

I love this stuff.  It reminds me of back in the day when readers voted to kill Jason Todd (the second Robin).  They were horrified when it actually happened, amazed to have power of life or death, even if it was over a comic book character.  Well, now you will help determine the path of the new XCOM.  How do you vote?
