Batman: Arkham Knight released a short while ago for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. The console versions of the game seem fine, at least our review of the PlayStation 4 version was. Though not all was right with Batman: Arkham Knight, according to those who purchased on PC.
Steam users flooded the game’s reviews with negativity toward the game, largely due to crashes and a 30fps lock. Rocksteady has since issued a response to these complaints on the wbgames forums.
“We’re aware that some users are reporting issues with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. This is something that Rocksteady takes very seriously. We are working closely with our external PC development partner to make sure these issues get resolved as quickly as possible.”
No time horizon was given for a potential patch, and what issues that patch would address. Shame for PC players, Arkham Knight is by most accounts a fantastic game. The PlayStation 4 version, which most reviewers played, currently holds a 91 on Metacritic.
Update: WB has offered Batman: Arkham Knight PC owners a workaround for the time being that involves mostly all of the customizable settings of the game to their “minimum or OFF” settings. Doing that should provide players with a 30fps capped experience. This workaround is designed for players with minimum to recommended spec systems. The developers say that they are working towards a solution for players with more capable PCs.
