Batman Arkham Knight Getting Patched for PC

With the recent controversy over Batman: Arkham Knight’s many problems which even caused it to be pulled from the Steam Store, Rocksteady is trying to make things right by releasing a patch that should help improve the overall quality of the game. In a recent post on the Arkham Knight community forums, WB Games states what Rocksteady is currently focusing on trying to improve,

  • Support for frame rates above 30FPS in the graphics settings menu
  • Fix for low resolution texture bug Improve overall performance and framerate hitches
  • Add more options to the graphics settings menu
  • Improvements to hard drive streaming and hitches
  • Address full screen rendering bug on gaming laptop
  • Improvements to system memory and VRAM usage
  • NVIDIA SLI bug fixes
  • Enabling AMD Crossfire NVIDIA and AMD updated drivers


WB Games also goes on to state that the current patch that is being released will address some of the game crashing bugs,

  • Fixed a crash that was happening for some users when exiting the game
  • Fixed a bug which disabled rain effects and ambient occlusion. We are actively looking into fixing other bugs to improve this further
  • Corrected an issue that was causing Steam to re-download the game when verifying the integrity of the game cache through the Steam client
  • Fixed a bug that caused the game to crash when turning off Motion Blur in BmSystemSettings.ini. A future patch will enable this in the graphics settings menu

It’s been a rough start for Arkham Knight so far, but hopefully Rocksteady will be able to fix the problems with the game so people will be able to play it. To check out the post in the community forums for yourself you can do so by heading here.
