A new title update for XCOM: Enemy Unknown has filtered through Steam today, fixing a few issues and switching all of XCOM’s in-game movies to 1080p.

Also among the minor fixes and conveniences are a multiplayer text chat function that can be activated by hitting the J key by default, and a fix that apparently stops soldiers’ hair from looking as if it’s built on top of the game’s environmental fog. There a few other changes in the mix: you can see the official list on Steam, or check it out below.

  • Various visibility/hiding optimizations
  • Multiplayer text chat support (J to activate)
  • Mouse 4/5 will switch soldiers in the Barracks
  • ESC hides the movement grid if you do not want to commit to a move while it is activated
  • Squad Sight ability optimization
  • Fixed issue when equipping two grenades with Deep Pockets.
  • Fixed Rapid Fire sometimes consuming too much ammo.
  • SHIVs that are damaged will no longer become unusable.
  • Fixed some hangs/soft crashes in tactical combat.
  • Replaced software cursor with the operating system cursor to reduce lag and framerate dependence.
  • Fixed rendering bug which causes some soldier’s hair to appear as if it is rendering on top of environment fog.
  • 1080p movies are now used at all times on the PC.
