Warner working on Batman: Arkham Knight issues; First patch released

Those having issues with the PC version of Batman Arkham Knight will be pleased to know that the first PC patch for Batman: Arkham Knight is out now, although most of the major issues are still to be addressed.

"Rocksteady is leading our team of developers and partners as we work on the PC performance issues that players have been encountering," says Warner Bros. on its website. 

"The work is significant and while we are making good progress on improving performance, it will take some time to ensure that we get the right fixes in place."

Below is the list of the key areas where Warner is dedicating its resources to improve the experience:

- 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

While Warner works on improving performance, it will also continue to make interim patches available to address issues for those still playing the game on PC. The first patch is being released now and the updates include:

- 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

Have you played Batman: Arkham Knight on PC? If so are you having any of the issues discovered by others?

How much did you pay for the game? You could get the game for around £15 on PC. Also a bad PC port just means it's about the same as the console versions

in this case the bad port wasn't the same as consoles - PS4 ran smooth all the way through to the end with no bugs for me, no crashes and no drops in fps. I know a few people who got pc versions refunded then bought it on PS4 instead. I thought it was a good game - performance isn't as bad on PC as most people saying though - I saw a few PC streamers play it, it was still playable even with dips in fps

Some people get bugs some don't. One of my mates in running a dual-core cpu & he is having no problems whatsoever (30fps)
