Batman Arkham Knight’s New Beta Patch makes a Brief Appearance, Reveals New Graphics Options

Archie Paras

Following AMD's release of the new Catalyst Driver a couple of days ago that featured some performance improvements for Batman Arkham Knight, we get another tease that the hugely anticipated patch for the PC version of Arkham Knight, will be with us soon. Earlier today a beta patch made a brief appearance, before it was taken down shortly after. Thankfully though, the game's new graphics options were revealed, which include as Rocksteady promised options to turn off Chromatic Aberration and Film Grain. A selection for maximum frame-rate is offered , as well as a new indicator for the percentage of VRAM used. A High Textures option has been implemented, requiring 4GB of VRAM.

The patch for the PC version of Batman Arkham Knight should be coming soon

There is no indication as to when the patch will be available on Steam, but it shouldn't be too long. It appears though that PC gamers will eventually be getting the Batman Arkham Knight version they deserve.
