Gotham Knights crashing on PC should be fixed in the Batman, Red Hood, and Nightwing sandbox game, as Warner Bros. issues a new patch with performance and stability changes, hoping to transform the world of Robin and Batgirl into something slicker.
The entire Gotham Knights cast has been afflicted with a couple of bugs and issues up until now, but the latest PC patch aims to address some of the most frustrating. To begin with, when you hop down from a ledge or a beam, Robin, Red Hood, Nightwing, and Batgirl will no longer do that annoying thing where they jump forward as soon as they land, scuppering your perfect, stealthy approach. The UI and a few of the inputs have been retooled and fixed, and the notorious floating cars bug that you may have encountered in co-op mode has been squashed.
There is now better optimisation for the low and medium-setting presets, which ought to help Gotham Knights run better on a broader range of PCs, and you can now add and customise filters and other visual settings via Nvidia Freestyle. Most significantly, however, several issues with Gotham Knights crashing have been resolved.
Up until now, trying to join a friend on Steam could cause Gotham Knights to crash – that’s no longer the case. Dismantling whatever gear you had equipped could also force the game to crash, but again, this has apparently been resolved. Co-op connection stability has been improved, and Warner Bros. notes a series of “additional crash fixes”, hopefully signalling the Batman open-world game will generally play better than ever.
