I finally got around to playing Xcom 2 again and it’s been performing great.
The latest patch for Xcom 2 has been performing admirably for me so far. I’ve spent my last hour blowing aliens into tiny little pieces and I didn’t experience any lag whatsoever. The last time I played Xcom 2 with my 980m gpu I was only getting 25-30 fps inside my base and out on the world map.
During stages I was getting really great FPS though. I was averaging 45 FPS. With this latest patch I’m getting a solid 75fps in the base and on the world map. I get a solid 60fps with dips down to 55. Xcom 2 is working beautifully for me and I love it.
I’m not sure how this patch is performing for other people, but it’s working really well for me. There are still some tweaks that can be made, but I’m really happy with the performance that I’m getting right now. If you’ve been on the fence about getting Xcom 2 you might want to consider it getting it now since the FPS issue seems to be fixed. I have no idea how this will work on older gpus though. You’ll run the risk of having poor performance if you gpu can’t handle higher settings.
