The first Batman: Arkham Knight patch for PC released, several issues addressed

Oddly enough I was chilling and was looking for something to play and eventually fired up Batman: Arkham Knight. Sure it’s busted but I was already frustrated after spending $60 dollars and what little I played I did enjoy. However prior to the game starting I noticed that there was a download accompanying the game, so I was curious. Did Rocksteady release an update and so soon? What was the deal?

It turns out that there was indeed an update:

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

We would like to thank our fans for their patience and invaluable feedback. We will continue to monitor and listen for any additional issues.

The first of many patches to fix the title and I’m grateful that this patch was released and so far, especially since I didn’t expect to see any updates any time soon. 

Now excuse me, I have to put my cowl on go kick some ass…. Batman style.
