    • **Official Screen Shot Thread** (56K Beware)
      XCOM 2 - the sequel to the brilliant XCOM: Enemy Within and not so great XCOM: Enemy Unknown that was released on the 5th February to critical acclaim. To date I've put in 6 hours game time and only scratched the surface of what this game offers. This sequel fixes a lot of issues ie, the annoying global threat and replaces it with Dark Events, plus no more chasing UFOs where you had little control anyway. I'm being as vague as possible to avoid potential spoilers. XCOM 2 is unoptimised right now and requires both patching and Game Ready drivers, with only one GPU supported you can enable SLI with these settings using Batman: Arkham Origins compatibility bits and AFR2 rendering, change GPU count depending on the GPUs installed: Wanted to show the game as I'm running it with the tweaks made above, only because of those tweaks and two 980 Ti's can I enable 2x MSAA otherwise I'd advise others to avoid any AA for now. At 2560x1440 XCOM 2 uses 2.1GB VRAM with no AA while 4x AA uses 3.5GB. RAM usage was high at 6.9GB but felt smoother than XCOM in caching assets into local memory. Keep fps above 55 and it will remain smooth throughout. I included the FPS overlay to show performance, capped to 60Hz as in this strategy title it counts for little and remains smooth apart from occasional drops. Whenever you see 30 fps that is using pre-rendered cutscenes. Future screenshots won't have the FPS overlay, don't panic I do have more tips but lets move on  Screenshots... click for original 1440p PNG, sizes varies from 2 to 4MB technicians unlock ability to hack objects in missions... homage to the original XCOM.... swords are a new thing and lethal, you should level up abilities... thought to include this, idiot alien somehow got itself killed via flames ?! .... and this, UI says I missed when in fact I hit for 2 HP .... in 'reveal' scenes AA is bugged, we'll need AA bits for that too ... go overwatch... MISS! dammit! ... alien is a wannabe kangaroo  also fps dipped heavily here in game ....
