As promised a few days ago, Warner Bros. Interactive is once again selling the Windows PC version of its hit super-hero action console game Batman: Arkham Knight via Steam. The game was first released in June alongside the console versions, but was pulled from circulation just a few days later due to a large number of issues that made the game unplayable.
The price for the game is $49.99 on Steam, plus there's the option to buy the game with its Season Pass, which offers access to a ton of post-release DLC content, for $89.99. In addition, Warner Bros. Interactive is offering some free games for a limited time for Batman: Arkham Knight PC buyers:
"This means we will be giving away copies of Batman: Arkham Asylum GOTY, Batman: Arkham City GOTY, Batman: Arkham Origins, and Batman: Arkham Origins Blackgate. The Batman: Arkham library of games will be given to everyone who has already purchased or will purchase Batman: Arkham Knight for PC prior to 11:59 pm PDT, November 16, 2015. We're actively working with our partners at Valve to make this happen as soon as we can, so watch your Steam Library. We are aiming to deliver all of the games by December."
In January, Warner Bros. Interactive will release a "Community Challenge Pack" for the game, which will be offered to PC players first before its available for consoles.
"Finally, we are thrilled to announce that we are working with Valve and the Team Fortress 2 team for a special cross-game promotion. Through November 16, 2015, Valve will be running a contest for the Steam community to create Batman: Arkham themed cosmetic items for Team Fortress 2. The winning items will be given out to those who purchased Batman: Arkham Knight on Steam before the end of the contest. "
Even though the game is available to play again, there are still some known issues with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight.
"We are still working with our GPU partners to add full support for SLI and Crossfire. In addition, we are working with these partners to address stability issues on certain cards related to the latest drivers."
"After extensive testing, a hard drive paging issue with some GPUs on Windows 7 may occur after extended gameplay sessions. If you encounter this, simply re-launching the game will resolve the issue. For Windows 10 users, we've found that having at least 12GB of system RAM on a PC allows the game to operate without paging and provides a smoother gameplay experience."
