Batman: Arkham Knight PC patch officially live

Warner Bros has released the Batman: Arkham Knight PC patch, after a brief early leak.

A long-awaited patch for the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight is now available on Steam.

Rocksteady’s latest Batman game on PC was riddled with bugs that made the game impossible to play at launch.

It has been unlisted from the Steam Store since June, when the customers started complaining of severe graphical and performance bugs and glitches.

Fans expect that this update will fix the vast majority of the game’s technical problems.

The update was accidentally deployed to a number of users on Wednesday, but at least their impressions were very positive.
