Batman: Arkham Knight might finally be playable on PC, but you won’t know unless you’re still persevering with the game. The team at Warner Bros have released a patch for the troubled title, but it’s still not available again via Steam.
Officially considered an “interim” patch, it’s been in the works for a while, but is now about to be released for PC gamers who bought Arkham Knight when it was first released.
…and the change brings some serious improvements, with more on the way.
A Warner Bros spokesperson says:
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.
You can expect the following:
- Reduced frame rate hitches
- Optimizations for system memory and VRAM usage
- Improved performance on all GPUs (requires the latest drivers)
- More Comprehensive In-Game Settings
- Fixed low resolution texture bugs
- Fixed hitches when running on mechanical hard drives (HDD)
- Adding support for SLI and Crossfire
- Adding support for the latest DLC & Season Pass content
- Adding support for additional updates such as Photo Mode
- Continued improvements and bug fixing for a Windows 7 specific memory issue that occurs on configurations with 8GB of system RAM and some NVIDIA GPUs during extended game play
- Continued improvements for Windows 10 specific issues on systems with some AMD GPUs
Of course, if you don’t have Arkham Knight on PC yet, this is all irrelevant, as you’re not able to buy it. We’re hoping the game makes a glorious return to online retailers real soon now.
