I finished XCOM 2 [official site] last night and had, up until the final mission, evaded the troubles some suffer. Then the end neared and everything glitched out into a psychedelic wonderland, flashing and morphing through loads of different types of graphics glitches. These bugs are great! I wish I’d had them all along! What are you all complaining about? Sheesh! Here, I snapped a gallery of screens for those of you unlucky enough to not see this bug.
Given that this all happened on the final mission, spoilers obviously follow. Look away if you don’t want to see where it’s set or what happens. I’ll cross my fingers and hope you get to see all this too on your run. I know at least one person who had the same thing happen in the same place, though they – for reasons I’ll never understand – fixed it by reloading their save a few times. Pssh.
I’ve no idea what made XCOM 2 do this – my laptop wasn’t even running hot enough to max out its fans. These glitches are the finest I’ve ever had, beating out even my days with an optimistically mega-overclocked Voodoo3.
Come see the damage Pip’s psychic powers cause by clicking the arrow above that screenshot to advance, an arrow which will magically shift to below screens from here on. Glitches, eh?
