While we know that Batman: Arkham Knight for the PC won’t be getting a patch to fix all known performance issues until September at least it looks like the wait won’t be too long to see a little improvement at least. Warner Bros. have revealed today that an interim patch is coming in August.
This patch is aimed to help those who already own the game and are waiting patiently for their game to be fixed. It may not fix the game to the quality where it could be available for sale again. It may at least placate those who already have it.
It is also doubtful that this will lead to the release of the Batgirl DLC to the PC for the Season Pass owners. As Warner Bros. and Rocksteady will still be working on the full patch to get the game to a reasonable quality, the focus is to hold off on the DLC until after. For those PC owners who have been able to get their game to at least a performance where they can play the game at a reasonable quality, the lack of DLC has understandably been a new annoyance.
It will be interesting to see what comes in the interim patch when it comes in August, and what Warner Bros. have seen as priority fixes for the PC owners. Will we see the 30fps limits removed? It seems more likely that the stuttering performance issues will be a priority, with cosmetic and tweaks such as frame rate locks being secondary concerns.
What are your thoughts on the news of this patch? What do you want fixed in the game first? Let us know below.
