Batman: Arkham Knight for Windows PC on sale again, with some extra free Batman games

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."

Get Batman: Arkham Knight for Windows PC on Steam for $49.99

  • smaller than the console downloads size, which is around 45GB for the Xbox one and PS4 versions...   re-read the story... 12GB of ram.... that is insane  
  • Did he say storage???
  • Well he probably did right? Because you are so great, you don't jump to conclusions right!!!??
  • Yeah and I was happy barely getting 8 gigs last month.
  • previously, the PC versions were delayed 1-3 months after the console release....this version of the game has been a HUGE cluster for PC gamers. as far as this game is concerned, it may be too little, too late. Too many other big games are about to be released for people to be interesting in this game at MSRP I ended up jumping on the PS4 version (got the CE for $24.99 at the gamestop expo in Vegas)
  • Yeah, but those free games really seem to show they are aware they messed up. So I say kudos.
  • except that there is a good chance that if you were waiting for Arkham Knight on the PC, then you probably have at least a few of the previous games already. I do. Arkham Knight is the 1st one that I have played on a console.
  • It's still a lot better than the response to the buggy releases of Sonic 06, AC5, BF5, Sonic Boom, Colonial Marines... God Damn it, Sega...
  • Time to upgrade the RAM in my PC :) Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Looks like the 16gB of RAM in my rig will FINALLY be used
  • They all said I was going overboard, but I knew it would come in handy!
  • Battlefront recommends 16GB...I just upgraded. We'll see.
  • DO NOT BUY, I repeat.. DO NOT BUY.. Hit the Steam store page to see what I mean.. People have negative reviews for the rerelease as well!
  • It's stale now, not buying until further price cut, I am not jumping to consoles despite of ignorant behavior of developers toward PC gamers.
    Edit. It's like binding the legs of a horse to let the donkey win... Ridiculous
  • Well, four months and still the game has issues...
    Lesson learnt : Never pre order for PC EVER, even if it's from an awesome developer.
    Just cancelled my Fallout 4 pre order, I'll wait it out and see if it's well optimized Posted via the Windows Central App
  • I can't believe after all this time they are still not cutting the price of this game at release, it's all well and good giving you the previous installments, but as someone has already mentioned most likely you have already purchased these games when they came out, which is the boat that I am in, if they were really sorry, they would give you the season pass for free, not just give you what's already available, they should give you the full season pass and they are saying its on sale now but its still not up to scratch and they are working on it, if this was a normal situation you would not have to pay for this kind of work or get a huge discount, I think they have really taken a Liberty with this game!!!! I'm going to have to buy it on Xbox now!!!! At least the price has gone down somewhat!!!!
  • Holy hell man, 12GB of RAM? That is bonkers! Wow, and I thought Mad Max was already insane with 8GB of RAM.
  • 12 gam ram! Lolz! Didn't expect this from Rocksteady. I ran arkham origins on 4gb ddr2 ram and the old 9500gt. Shame on u Rocksteady! Look and learn from Rockstars gta v. It's really annoying seeing developers not paying attention to pc nowadays and focussing more on crap boxes. Its also becoz of this we get crappy downgrade of graphics from unity to the shitty syndicate. I wish consoles burn in hell!
  • For me, this game was the least stable. Full of bugs and badly optimized, It crashed every few minutes. i7 3630QM + 16GB of ram + 980M and rarely reached a stable 45fps.
    One time It consumed 14GB of memory, that's when I had to turn on Paging file.
