Warner Bros issued a new statement about the status of Batman Arkham Knight’s PC version. They report that the new patch will be ready in the next few weeks and revealed the details of the hugely anticipated patch.

Batman Arkham Knight gets first interim patch in a few weeks

You can view the key features of Batman Arkham Knight’s first interim patch below:

  • Reduced frame rate hitches
  • Optimized system memory and VRAM usage
  • Improved performance on all GPUs (requires the latest drivers)
  • Min Spec AMD GPU is once again the Radeon HD 7870 2GB
  • More Robust In-Game Settings, including:
  • Added the ability to change settings for Max FPS to 30/60/90
  • Added toggles for Motion Blur, Chromatic Aberration, and Film Grain
  • Added a “High” Texture Resolution value
  • Added Texture Filtering option

Lets hope that Batman Arkham Knight finally gets the PC version it deserves. While Warner Bros. did mess-ups with the release on the PC, Rocksteady's final iteration in the Arkham trilogy is indeed a masterpiece, and it's really a shame for it to be marred by a less than stellar PC version.

Batman Arkham Knight has recently received a new update on the PS4. The latest patch updates the game to version 1.05 and it weighs in at 4.3 GB. For users that have already updated to the latest version the download will only be 1.6 GB for the new update.
