Batman: Arkham Knight continues to have problems after re-release on PC.
After the Batman: Arkham’s Knight‘s re-release, players are still complaining about performance issues on their PC. According to Eurogamer, “the only noticeable changes were the addition of support for add-on and season pass content.”
When the game was released back in June, there many bugs in the game. This eventually led to Batman: The Arkham Knight being pulled from Steam. After the game was re-released on Steam, the publisher of Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment posted a note on the Steam community. According to Steam Community, the publisher stated, “a hard drive paging issue with some GPUs on Windows 7 that may occur after extended gameplay sessions. If you encounter this, simply re-launching the game will resolve the issue.”
Windows 10 users are advised to have at least 12 gigabytes of RAM to run the game smoothly. Before the launch of the game, the system requirements “indicated 8GB of RAM would be enough to run the game at Ultra settings, suggesting there have been optimization issues.”
According to Eurogamer, they “asked Digital Foundry to take a quick look at the game as it stands – the results suggest that Batman: Arkham Knight today has seen no further improvements from its interim patch back in September.”
I’ve never been more glad in deciding not to purchase this game for the PC. Batman: The Arkham Knight is probably a pretty good game, but a lot of PC users won’t be able to find that out until these major problems are fixed. It’s depressing to see players have such difficulty. All they want to do is play the game that they paid for.
