Batman: Arkham Knight has been receiving rave reviews for its gameplay – rarely has anyone complained about a single glitch, on consoles. Sadly PC gamers were not having the same experience console fans had. The PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight was full of bugs and glitches, so much so that it had to be pulled from store shelves completely! Well I am pleased to tell you that a interim patch has finally been released! Now this interim patch is only available to people who already have Batman: Arkham Knight, and an updated version of the patch will be released for those wanting to purchased Arkham Knight on PC in the coming weeks (hopefully days).
Here are the full details from Steam.
Good news – testing for the interim patch has been completed and it is now available for those who already have Batman: Arkham Knight for PC. As a reminder, below are some of the major fixes and improvements that will be addressed with this 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)
In addition to the above, we’re continuing to work on the following for 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
As always, we will monitor for any additional issues that come up and will provide further optimizations and bug fixes along the way.
We would like to thank everyone for their patience and invaluable feedback. We’ll provide ongoing updates here as they are made available. In the meantime, please enjoy the game with the latest patch.
