Batman: Arkham Knight Receives a PC Patch to Fix Some Issues; More on the Way

Batman: Arkham Knight may still have its Steam sales suspended, but that doesn't mean Warner Bros. and Rocksteady aren't trying to get the game working on PC. A new patch came out earlier Saturday that addressed numerous issues facing the PC version, with things like a crash to desktop bug when exiting the game and missing rain and ambient occulsion fixed. The bug that caused the game to crash if motion blur was disabled in an .INI file has also been addressed, as has an issue causing Steam to re-download the game when verifying its cache. All of these fixes are quite nice, but they aren't the only things WB and Rocksteady are working on.

Things such as overall performance improvement and even support for greater than 30FPS are still being worked on. Bug fixes, low resolution texture replacement, more graphical options, hard drive streaming hitches, a full screen rendering bug on laptops, and system memory and VRAM usage are also in consideration for future fixes, which hopefully come soon. Fixes for NVIDIA SLI and support for AMD CrossFire will also arrive, as will new drivers for the respective camps. There is no ETA on when exactly PC gamers can expect these fixes, nor when the game will be available again on Steam, but any progress is good progress.

We'll update you on when the future patches arrive for Batman: Arkham Knight, but in the meantime, maybe we should be a little leery of Warner Bros. shortchanging PC gamers with any upcoming games. After Mortal Kombat X and now Batman: Arkham Knight, WB isn't doing itself any favors with PC gamers.
