Batman: Arkham Knight and Patch Update


Rocksteady has released an updated patch on June 27, 2015 which address the issues that gamers are having with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight game.  You can read a full list of the sections that the Rocksteady team will focus on developing and what the latest patch will address.  You can read the full description of the notes here via Steam

The fist patch will address the following:
  • 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

What we can expect once the Rocksteady team is able to fully address and fix the PC version issues are detailed in the following videos where they feature the GameWorks features for the game and the Bat mobile!  While we wait for the fixes to come, enjoy the features below!
