Leaked Arkham Knight PC patch apparently fixes the title’s myriad issues

To say Batman: Arkham Knight had a shaky launch on PC would be a huge understatement. When it was released in June the PC version suffered such crippling issues that Warner Bros. took the incredible step of removing the title from sale until the issues could be resolved.

A patch was released in late June, but it didn’t address all of the issues and as such Warner Bros. announced that a patch was coming in August, but then delayed the release of the patch until September. In August a Warner Bros. representative posted on the title’s forums advising that the patch was in beta testing and today it appears that the patch was accidentally released for some Steam users.

Kotaku is reporting that some users who had opted into beta option for Arkham Knight (an option available for all Steam titles) had received that patch. Apparently the update introduced a range of new graphics options and made the title run better than it ever had previously. However, it appears that the release of the patch was a mistake as shortly after a second patch was released that removed the first. This is most likely due to the patch not yet being finished, but it points to good things coming in the future for Arkham Knight on PC.

Batman: Arkham Knight is available now for PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version is currently suspended from sale.
