When Arkham Knight came out back in June, it was considered to be a great game and a satisfying conclusion to the Arkham triology. Sadly, this cannot be said for the PC version of the game.
Riddled with bugs that made many players copies almost unplayable, Warner Bros had to act fast in order to solve the problem.
They did not.
They instead pulled the PC version of the game from the shelves and promised players a fix to the problems.
Nearly 3 months later and we are finally getting that fix in the form of a solid patch update. The PC version of the game still remains off sale however, so only time will tell if this patch is everything it is promised to be.
Here are some key features of the patch update, but it’s important to note that this list includes fixes for “future” patches as well, not just this current one.
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)
In addition to the above, we’re continuing to work on the following for future updates:
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
Early reports from players are fairly positive and many claim that it makes the game actually playable and enjoyable. I personally have the game for my Xbox, so luckily I was spared these issues and haven’t actually tested out the update. If you have however tried it out and have any thoughts on it please let us know in the comments below!
