Indie developer No Bull Intentions has decided to give away its Supreme League of Patriots to people who bought Arkham Knight on PC. It’s a nice gesture but, more pointedly, it’s also a very clever way for No Bull to capitalize on the back of the huge mess that Rocksteady’s unready PC version has left.
“We think that PC gamers get taken for granted far too often,” the developer writes in a press release, rehashing some very familiar grievances. “Those who choose to play on PC are often subjected to shoddy console ports, driver problems, poor optimisation and game-breaking bugs, not to mention invasive DRM and launch delays of weeks or even months for some titles. We’re making this offer to show our support for PC gamers.”
As a gesture of appreciation for PC gamers, No Bull are giving away the first season of Supreme League of Patriots for free to Arkham Knight PC owners. How that gesture will be received, given the very mixed reviews the game has earned, remains to be seen.
“While we have every confidence that Rocksteady and Warner Bros. will keep patching Arkham Knight until it’s the amazing game we all anticipated, that doesn’t take away the disappointment that gamers felt. We recognise that our little superhero caper can’t do that either, but we hope the comical adventures of The Purple Patriot will bring a smile to their faces while they’re waiting. “
Instructions on how to redeem the offer are available on No Bull’s Tumblr.
