The first major patch for XCOM 2 is now available, bringing much needed performance improvements, balance tweaks and bug fixes, Firaxis has announced.

You should see the patch automatically install when starting the Steam client.

"This patch introduces new fixes, balance tweaks, and several performance optimizations in the game that should improve framerates and in-game delays overall," states the developer.

A new 'Zip Mode' has also been added, letting players enable a faster paced experience (under the gameplay options) that speeds up animations and some gameplay delays.

Firaxis also recommends players run the "Auto Detect Graphic Settings" once the patch is installed to ensure they are getting the best experience.

"The XCOM team has been working hard to improve performance, balance, and stability issues reported by our fans. A big thank you to anyone who took the time to provide feedback and submit reports. We will continue to improve the XCOM 2 experience with additional updates and patches over the coming months," concluded the Firaxis post.

You'll find the complete patch notes over on Steam Community. XCOM 2's first piece of DLC, meanwhile, launches next Thursday.
