New, 40 comments

The PC release of Batman: Arkham Knight was plagued with issues, causing publisher Warner Bros. to stop selling the PC version of the popular title. An "interim" patch was recently released for testing, and it's about to be released for everyone who has already purchased the game on PC.

Here's what you can expect from the patch:

  • 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)

This is what you can expect from 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

"We would like to thank everyone for their patience and invaluable feedback," the statement said. "We’ll provide ongoing updates here as they are made available. In the meantime, please enjoy the game with the latest patch"

As of this writing, the game is still not for sale on Steam.
