Batman: Arkham Knight Summary
While we have promise of ansometime next month for Batman: Arkham Knight on PC, engineer Tom Peterson has seen the releases so far and it "plays great" and effects looking "amazing."
That would indeed be in stark contrast to the giant unoptimised mess PC gamers were sold at launch. Not even the fancy Gameworks rain effects were working, and that had its own option for on or off.
Warner Brosthat there will be an “interim” patch for Batman: Arkham Knight this August, part one of the publisher and developer attempts to fix the faltering superhero game.
“As an update, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Rocksteady and our partners are targeting an interim patch update for existing players to be released in August,” WB writes. “This update will address many of the issues we listed in our June 27 update. We will provide additional details as we finalize that interim patch over the coming weeks.”
Batman: Arkham Knight is still on the surgery table at, or whichever other studio has been roped in to sort out that mess, and according to a leaked email sent to EB Games staff in Australia, we won't see a fixed release for a few months yet.
Batman: Arkham Knight's Batgirl DLC story pack A Matter of Family hason the PC, unsurprisingly given the game's high-profile problems on the platform.
"We apologise for the delay and only want to make sure that any content that we offer is up to the standards that PC players expect," writes publisher Warner Bros. Maybe they should have done that the first time around.
The prequel DLC Batgirl: A Matter of Family for the troubled Batman: Arkham Knight has just gotten a trailer. It's set before the events of Arkham Asylum as Batgirl by then had become Oracle.
Joker has nabbed Commissioner Gordon, Batgirl's father, and he's threatening to kill him if she or Robin gets Batman involved. While not as strong as the Dark Knight, Batgirl has her own unique gifts for crime fighting.
