Batman: Arkham Knight patched on PS4 to fix leaderboards

Batman: Arkham Knight developer Rocksteady Studios released a patch for the game's PlayStation 4 version yesterday, fixing campaign leaderboards that had been down since last week, game director Sefton Hill announced on Twitter.

Arkham Knight includes a leaderboard metagame called Gotham's Greatest. The game keeps track of scores in various challenges throughout the campaign, and compares them to scores from other people on your friends list. However, within a day or so of Arkham Knight's launch, players on PS4 began seeing an error message saying that the game couldn't connect to the PlayStation Network.

Rocksteady didn't comment on the issue until Sunday, when a community manager said on the Arkham Knight forums that the studio was "aware of this issue and investigating solutions." The company patched the game to version 1.03 on PS4 yesterday, and following the update, PS4 players are reporting that the leaderboards are functional again.

Meanwhile, Arkham Knight's PC port is still a mess. Rocksteady announced over the weekend that it was leading the charge on improving the PC version, and released an initial bundle of fixes in a patch. The issues were so bad that they led Arkham Knight publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to suspend sales of the PC port last week; that policy remains in effect.
