After a severely troubled PC release (just look at this, this and this), Batman: Arkham Knight has finally received its first patch to address some issues. Hit the jump for details about what has been fixed.

According to a statement by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment (publishers of the game) posted in the Arkham Knight Steam community, these fixes include:

  • Reduced frame rate hitches
  • Optimizations for system memory and VRAM usage
  • Improved performance on all GPUs (requires the latest drivers)
  • More comprehensive in-game settings
  • Fixed low resolution texture bugs
  • Fixed hitches when running on mechanical hard drives (HDD)

Furthermore, they promised that they are working on patches for the following:

  • Adding support for SLI and CrossFire
  • Adding support for the latest DLC & Season Pass content
  • Adding support for additional updates such as Photo Mode
  • Continued improvements and bug fixing for a Windows 7 specific memory issue that occurs on configurations with 8GB of system RAM and some NVIDIA GPUs during extended game play
  • Continued improvements for Windows 10 specific issues on systems with some AMD GPUs

At time of writing, Batman: Arkham Knight has not been re-listed for sale on Steam. A quick look through the comments on the Steam Community page shows mixed reactions, with most users complaining about persistent problems.
