Maybe not what you’re expecting, but in a good way.
At this point, everyone and their mother has heard about the “troubled” PC release of Batman: Arkham Knight. Well, after a lot of speculation, angry fans, and half-promises, the “fixed” version of Arkham Knight will be returned to the market next week on October 28th. It’ll coincide with the release of a patch that will bring the PC version of Arkham Knight up to date with the DLC and added content of the console versions; barring console exclusives of course. The statement, released on the game’s Steam community page, can be read in part below:
“At 10 am PDT, Oct. 28th, Batman: Arkham Knight will be re-released for the PC platform. At the same time we’ll also be releasing a patch that brings the PC version fully up-to-date with content that has been released for console (with the exception of console exclusives).
This means that next week, all PC players will have access to Photo Mode, Big Head Mode, Batman: Arkham Asylum Batman Skin, and character selection in combat AR challenges.
We want to give particular thanks to the members of the PC community who took the time to give us clear, detailed feedback and bug reporting.”
Although it’s great that the PC version is finally going to be fixed, the damage has already been done. It’s a hollow victory for it to have taken this long for the PC version to reach the point of even being playable, but whatever happens, PC players will finally get their hands on Arkham Knight – let’s hope it works this time around.
