  XCOM 2 Patch Includes bug fixes and performance improvements


At launch the game did not perform very well on PC, with the games higher graphical settings simply not being worth the performance impact. 

One of the biggest changes to the game is to the game's Maximum preset, which has removed 8xMSAA from the preset, giving a massive performance increase. This does increase the amount of aliasing in the game, but the option can still be enabled in the options menu. 


XCOM 2 – February 17 Patch Changelog:

  • - Player is unable to progress to scan in the Geoscape after completing the Resistance Communications research via Tutorial – This will fix previously affected saves.
  • - Unable to load saves with a Chryssalid Cocoon – This will fix the issue, and for previously affected saves.
  • - Adjustments were made to Texture Streaming to assist with periodic frame spikes.
  • - Using the preview voice button for a modded voice pack will no longer crash the game when in the armory.

8XMSAA is still there if you set it in custom settings.

With latest NVidia drivers (361.91) 4 way SLI works but it is better to use just a single card @2160p as the fps are all over the place.Quote
