XCOM: Enemy Unknown Patch

The 2K Games Forums have a list of the changes in a new patch for XCOM: Enemy Unknown that's now available to update the newly released installment in the counter-UFO strategy series (thanks Scott). Here's word on what this does:

We wanted to let you know the details for the PC update for XCOM: Enemy Unknown that went live today (10/11/12). I've included the notes on this patch below:

  • Various visibility/hiding optimizations
  • Multiplayer text chat support (press J to activate)
  • Mouse button 4/5 will switch soldiers in the Barracks
  • ESC hides the movement grid, if you do not want to commit to a move while it is activated
  • Squad Sight ability optimization
  • Fixed issue when equipping two grenades with Deep Pockets.
  • Fixed Rapid Fire sometimes consuming too much ammo.
  • SHIVs that are damaged will no longer become unusable.
  • Fixed some hangs/soft crashes in tactical combat.
  • Replaced software cursor with the operating system cursor to reduce lag and framerate dependence.
  • Fixed rendering bug which causes some soldier’s hair to appear as if it is rendering on top of environment fog.
  • 1080p movies are now used at all times on the PC.

Snipers are so OP. Flying armour + plasma sniper rifle + radar grenade thingy + squadsight = win.

Hell if you have all that you ought to be close to the end of the game, no? Me, I keep restarting because I start going into a death spiral when too many countries withdraw around the third or fourth month.

It seems that I keep trying to play like I used to play the original - basically going on missions indefinitely without researching the objective-specific items and I am being punished for it. I tried getting to the third or fourth month without even having built an Arc Thrower or Alien Containment yet and all of a sudden 6 countries pulled out at once!
