Batman: Arkham Knight will see the Dark Knight return on PC 'in the coming weeks'


After the absolute batastrophe that was the PC launch of Batman: Arkham Knight, Rocksteady - along with Nvidia's quality assurance team - have been working tirelessly to fix the beyond terrible port. 

It looks like that could be soon, according to a short note on a press release about the DLC, which they have also been working on tirelessly by the looks of it. 

I got Batman: Arkham Knight bundled with my GeForce 970 GPU, and I couldn't even get through the opening scene it stuttered so much. Hopefully the fix will bring it up to standard, because even after the last patch my system struggles.

My rig can run The Witcher 3 and Mad Max - which is a cracking port, by the way - on maximum settings, but GeForce Experience suggests I run Batman on its middle setting will all the flashy stuff turned off. 

The note in the press release stated the following: "The PC version of the game will be available in the coming weeks." It'll be interesting to see if anyone still cares.

Fraser took a look at the interim patch, saying that Batman: Arkham Knight is finally playable, but it's far from optimised

I was very glad to have not bought this, even though I loved the other Arkham games (I even enjoyed Origins)

The problem is there's so much good stuff coming out right now it's just going to disappear under the rubble even if they've fixed everything. I'm less excited than ever and will probably end up picking it up in the 2016 summer or christmas sales.

What's also sad is the DLC, priced enough to be a full game, generally ending up being a damp squib.

I will probably pick it up cheap in a Steam sale, like everyone else at this point...

Any guesses on what the 'we're so very sorry' make up gift will be? Probably just that rubbish Harley DLC free for everyone?

I picked this up for £11 on a cd key website. I think I'm one of the lucky few who never had any massive troubles with it.

I had a fair share of stuttering and it didn't perform like it should, having said that, it was playable.

After the last patch it works pretty much flawlessly. Some of the Nvidia effects slow the fps in certain areas, but it runs pretty well.

My concerns with this game were more that there were no boss fights.

Warner Bros said Batman Arkham Knight was returning in the coming weeks way back in July.
