Rocksteady Give Details of First Arkham Knight PC Patch, With More to Come

Although I absolutely adored Arkham Knight (read my review), it appears the PC patch is, well, less than stellar to say the least. In fact, in something of a first – I can’t recall it happening before – Warner actually pulled the PC version from Steam, until it could be fixed up.

Well, over on their forums, Rocksteady have announced the details of the first patch, which should be available as you read this:

While we work on improving performance, we 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

But there’s more, they are also working on the following:

Below is the list of the key areas where we are dedicating our resources to improve the experience for our loyal fans:

– Support for frame rates above 30FPS in the graphics settings menu
– Fix for low resolution texture bug
