XCOM: Enemy Unknown 3rd Patch is now live
The 3rd Patch for XCOM: Enemy Unknown is now live for all systems. The Second Wave addition is now available for those who have beaten the game. And a few bugs have been squashed including the AI teleport bug and the defeat screen when beating the game.

For those on PC, the Chris Kluwe hero unlock is now available. Chris beat Firaxis' Garth DeAngelis in a head to head match and won. His prize was being added to the game as a playable character.

The patch doesn't seem to work on saved games though. After installing the patch I played and recorded this mission. Check The Amazing Disappearing Sectopod at 1:27

"Minimise" is a lovely ambiguous term. My definition of "minimise", in this case, would mean "you'll never see it happen again because aliens don't teleport anymore, full stop". Their definition may range anywhere from that through to "we weren't given any time to work on this, so the best we could do was nothing".

Guys, can someone please help me, I'm getting increasingly frustrated with the lack of clear information about XCOM and it's patches.

I have a bought PC CD version of XCOM which apparently I have to play through Steam.

Where do I download the patch? Has Steam done it for me automatically already? Is there any clear way to tell? And how do I use/activate the "Chris Kluwe as XCOM Hero unlock"?

I don't know if it's just me being old, out of touch and stupid, but I can seem to find any answers to these questions. Can someone please help.

If you've installed it via Steam, then Steam has auto-magically included the patched version.

Select any soldier from your barracks, then rename them Chris Kluwe. Should bring a popup saying something about summoning a XCOM Hero, which will also disable achievements for that run.
