The long road to true playability continues for Batman: Arkham Knight on PC. After being pulled from the market due to its many serious performance issues, the game made a triumphant return late last month. While the game was massively improved, many felt that it was still broken on PC, with framerate and other stability problems lingering beyond the many patches issued for the game. Today we get ever closer to a true PC experience for Batman: Arkham Knight, with the release of a new patch that looks to solve some of these lingering issues.
The Batman: Arkham Knight PC patch notes are pretty long, but you can check them out below. The main things included in this update are fixes for a lot of framerate issues, including hitches during game saves and improved VRAM management. There’s also support for the latest DLC, which should be releasing today. Higher end graphics options have also had some improvements added, including stability problems that came up with light and shadow. Check below for the full Batman: Arkham Knight PC patch notes.
