XCOM 2 Troubleshooting

There's a Basic Tech Troubleshooting FAQ on the 2K Games website with tips on getting better performance from XCOM 2, the recently released strategy sequel. They cover workarounds for some of the issues people are encountering, and say they are also working on fixes on their end. Word is: "We want everyone to have the best experience possible, and will continue supporting the title with upcoming patches." Thanks VG247.

What was the Muton Beserker bug? I don't remember it, maybe never encountered or simply never noticed it.

Eh, Not ridiculous at all - its clear it was released with the idea that as long at it was not below a certain threshold (I.E., "The Batman Game Threshold") = then release it anyways. And differing hardware usually comes down to features and/or speed, there haven't exactly been extreme differences within the last 2 years, they all generally do the same thing; major differences in drivers would mainly just be Intel/AMD chips and Nvidia.

The Muton Beserker bug better not still be in XCOM 2, because that crap was hella annoying in the first one (which they never fixed).

Dropping depth of field from the highest setting to the next one down feels like it doubles my framerate. Guess my 970 doesn't like it.

My performance was pretty terrible until I switched from MSAA down to FXAA. Slight dip in quality, but INSANE performance increase.

Also, hitting capslock while in the sky ranger to speed up load times is hilarious -- AND it works.

Either way, this is one of my favorite games of all time already. Loving it so much

I'm not here to defend shitty software release practices, and god knows 2K is guilty of that many times over, but saying a PC game maker "only had to focus on one platform" is patently ridiculous. Considering the almost limitless possible variations in PC hardware configs I'm surprised most games work as well as they do.

It'd be nice if it didn't release with the jank in the first place though, especially since they only had to focus on one platform.

Excellent. By the time I get around to actually having the free time required to play this, it'll have dropped in price and be patched up enough to run well on my old desktop. Mwahaha!

I'll probably wait for a patch or driver update to see if it improves performance for me. If not I'll have to *gasp* turn down some options.

My copy still hasn't arrived yet, argh. Apparently long loading times can be fixed by pressing the capslock key?

One thing they never fixed in XCOM EU is Muton Beserkers causing extreme fps drops when they move. It still happens for me. I'm hoping no glaring issue like that remains or will remain after patching in XCOM 2.
