Batman: Arkham Knight new patch brings new gameplay improvements


Batman: Arkham Knight was released with #FPS #issues, but finally a PC patch that will alleviate some of those bugs. This patch was recently up for beta testing, then on Thursday it was announced on #Steam that owners of Arkham Knight could actually get the patch. If this is any sign of what is to come later for Linux and SteamOS, things are looking up for gameplay. Mind you, Feral Interactive will have a task at hand to make sure the game works smoothly.

Yorick from Warner Bros Interacive posted the update late yesterday and has already received a mixed reaction. Wading through the negative posts about the publisher and getting to the posts by Steam community members that actually commenting on the patch, reactions seem to range from the patch actually helping, to Arkham Knight being unplayable after the download.

Here’s a list of what was tackled in the update:

  • Reduced frame rate hitches
  • Optimizations for system memory and VRAM usage
  • Improved performance on all GPUs (requires the latest drivers)
  • More Comprehensive In-Game Settings
  • Fixed low resolution texture bugs
  • Fixed hitches when running on mechanical hard drives (HDD)

In addition to the above, we’re continuing to work on the following for future updates:

  • Adding support for SLI and Crossfire
  • Adding support for the latest DLC & Season Pass content
  • Adding support for additional updates such as Photo Mode
  • Continued improvements and bug fixing for a Windows 7 specific memory issue that occurs on configurations with 8GB of system RAM and some NVIDIA GPUs during extended game play
  • Continued improvements for Windows 10 specific issues on systems with some AMD GPUs

“We would like to thank everyone for their patience and invaluable feedback,” the statement said. “We’ll provide ongoing updates here as they are made available. In the meantime, please enjoy the game with the latest patch”

Stay tuned for more updates for Batman: Arkham Knight.
