Since its launch Batman Arkham Knight generated a lot of heat specially among pc owners as the game was almost unplayable on the most powerful platform ever. While the Ps4 and Xbox one version of the game ran absolutely buttery smooth some high end pcs were unable to maintain playable framerates. Flagged as a broken game by many steam users WB entertainment and developer Rocksteady were forced to remove the game from steam library. Now after almost 4 months later Rocksteady re-launched the game on pc with a positive gesture that the game is now fully functional and playable on PC. But there is a catch, some users reported issues after the re-launch. So Rocksteady now came up with an update about those issues. Read it below:-
October 28th PC Patch Notes
29 October – wb.elder.pliny
Hi everyone! I’m going to jump in and help out Yorick as a second pair of eyes and ears for you all.
With the game now available for sale, I wanted to provide a status update since the release of the September patch.
As we confirmed earlier today, the PC version of the game now supports all add-on content that has been released thus far for console. The configurations for this content are being updated now and we expect everything to be available in the next few hours. We’ll confirm when this process is completed.
We are still working with our GPU partners to add full support for SLI and Crossfire. In addition, we are working with these partners to address stability issues on certain cards related to the latest drivers.
After extensive testing, a hard drive paging issue with some GPUs on Windows 7 may occur after extended gameplay sessions. If you encounter this, simply re-launching the game will resolve the issue.
For Windows 10 users, we’ve found that having at least 12GB of system RAM on a PC allows the game to operate without paging and provides a smoother gameplay experience.
UPDATE: We became aware of an issue with the Season Pass DLC content where it was not being downloaded automatically. We’ve recently resolved this issue with help from Valve, and everyone should be receiving their Season Pass content now.
To compensate Pc gamers Rocksteady also offered a large amount of free stuffs for them. According to Rocksteady if you buy/bought the game on or before 16th November 2015 you are eligible to get all the batman arkham series game for free of cost. That includes Batman Arkham Asylum GOTY, Batman Arkham City GOTY, Batman Arkham Origins and Batman Arkham Origins Blackgate. Along with that all the season pass contents which are already out on consoles now available for pc to download. For more news on Batman Arkham Knight keep your eyes on our site.
