Publisher Warner Bros. Interactive made the unusual move of pulling the PC version of its open world action game Batman: Arkham Knight from being sold a few days after its release, after it became clear that it had several bugs and performance issues. Now the publisher and the game's primary developer Rocksteady have announced that the first patch for the PC version has been released, but it will take some time, and many more updates, before Batman Arkham Knight is up to full speed,
In a message posted on the game's Steam Community site, Warner Bros Interactive listed what's been fixed in this first patch:
- Fixed a crash that was happening for some users when exiting the game
- Fixed a bug which disabled rain effects and ambient occlusion. We are actively looking into fixing other bugs to improve this further
- Corrected an issue that was causing Steam to re-download the game when verifying the integrity of the game cache through the Steam client
- Fixed a bug that caused the game to crash when turning off Motion Blur in BmSystemSettings.ini. A future patch will enable this in the graphics settings menu
The publisher also offered a list of what they plan to offer in future patches:
- Support for frame rates above 30FPS in the graphics settings menu
- Fix for low resolution texture bug
- Improve overall performance and framerate hitches
- Add more options to the graphics settings menu
- Improvements to hard drive streaming and hitches
- Address full screen rendering bug on gaming laptop
- Improvements to system memory and VRAM usage
- NVIDIA SLI bug fixes
- Enabling AMD Crossfire
- NVIDIA and AMD updated drivers
The PC port of Batman: Arkham Knight was developed primarily by Iron Galaxy, which is also the main developer behind the Xbox One's Season Two of Killer Instinct. There's no word on when the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight will be put on sale once again.
