An interim patch was recently released for the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. Warner Bros., and Rocksteady are still hard at work fixing and repairing the game that was quickly pulled from digital distribution on PC after it was discovered that a large portion of gamers were unable to play it.
“As always, we will monitor for any additional issues that come up and will provide further optimizations and bug fixes along the way.
“We would like to thank everyone for their patience and invaluable feedback. We’ll provide ongoing updates here as they are made available. In the meantime, please enjoy the game with the latest patch.”
The patch fixes some of the frame-rate hitches, there’s also increased optimizations for how the game manages system and VRAM usage. The team improved performance on all compatible GPUs with the latest drivers available for said GPUs, and they also fixed the hitches with the mechanical hard drives and the low resolution texture bugs.
The next patch will include support for SLI and Crossfire setups, as well as added support for their real money makers: DLC and season pass content.
There are also plans to further optimize the Windows 7 versions of the game, as well as a few Windows 10 specific issues that they’ll need to iron out.
The game is still unavailable and won’t return as a purchasable title on Steam until this fall, where the Linux and SteamOS version will also launch.
Sales for the game were suspended following a massive wave of refunds and tons of negative reviews from gamers who were unable to play the game due to overwhelming issues relating to poor optimization, lack of bug testing and practically nothing done about the issues raised during quality assurance testing.
