Tested this three times, found the same result each time. After Steam goes offline and you attempt to play XCOM 2, keyboards dont work whatsoever. I can't use Q & E to rotate, use TAB to switch between soldiers, and right click does nothing, so I cannot move soldiers. I can't hit ESC to load a save, and I can't change elevation.

Anyone else getting this exact issue when Steam is offline? And if so, how did you fix it?

To clarify, this occurs regardless if:

  • Steam is in Offline Mode
  • Steam is in Online mode (but has lost internet connection)

And the game is running pure vanilla, with no mods.

  • Do you have a controller plugged in by any chance? Figure it might have something to do with it, otherwise it is very weird indeed. – CoqPwner Mar 17 '16 at 14:49
  • This is totally strange. I'd check USB devices and make sure there isn't something odd there. Otherwise, what mods (if any) are you using? – Kikanaide Mar 17 '16 at 15:03
  • @Kikanaide It's pure vanilla XCOM 2, no mods. Re-edited the question – senpai Mar 17 '16 at 19:02
  • @skully then I can't help you, sorry. Best of luck! – Kikanaide Mar 18 '16 at 20:58

The reason it is happening is because you are not waiting for the "Cannot connect" message to pop up. I found that if you run the game and just load up your saved game, your keyboard stops responding. the only keys that work is your numbers. also you cannot move anywhere. BUT if you run the game, get to the menu and wait until the game gives you the cannot connect to the server message, then load your game, everything works 100%
