Batman: Arkham Knight PC Gets First Patch, Rocksteady Outlines Prioritization Plans

by Kyle Hilliard on Jun 27, 2015 at 02:15 PM

Batman: Arkham Knight continues to struggle on PC, and while sales have still been suspended, Rocksteady has released a patch and detailed its priorities to get the game running smoothly.

In a statement on the WBGames message boards, Rocksteady wrote that it is making headway saying, "The work is significant and while we are making good progress on improving performance, it will take some time to ensure that we get the right fixes in place." Some of the priorities to get fixed include getting the framerate fixed, getting the low resolution texture bug fixed, and improving overall performance among many other things.

In the meantime, there is a patch available now (or at least should be available soon) that fixes specific instances where the game crashes, as well as one where the game would try to re-download itself. For the full list of fixes, and the ones that are coming, head here.

Our Take
It's surprising that the game released on PC in the state it is still in, but Rocksteady is doing the right things to get the game working. Pulling its sales offline, and offering updates like this go a long way in helping those eager to play understand what's happening.
