Yesterday, we got a brief look at the upcoming Arkham Knight PC patch. Described as the interim patch, setting the stage for the last wave of fixes to hit later on in the year. Now, that patch is officially available, adding in several fixes, mostly focussing on graphics and gameplay options.
For starters, frame rates above 30 are now officially supported and the rest of the graphics options menu is more fleshed out, with more options for motion blur, higher texture quality amongst other improvements.
Here are the list of things improved in this new patch:
- Reduced frame-rate hitches.
- Optimisations 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).
The next patch will include some more fixes:
- Adding support for SLI and Crossfire.
- Adding support for the latest DLC and 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.
The game itself remains unavailable for sale but it looks like now, the game might finally be playable for many. We will be revisiting Arkham Knight ourselves once the final patch is out to see if the game is finally up to scratch.

KitGuru Says: Since I like to play my games at 4K, I’ll need to wait for the final multi-GPU fixes in the final patch before I can finally dig in to Arkham Knight. Hopefully once everything is cleared up, the game will finally be worth the time. Are any of you still waiting to play Arkham Knight? Will you be waiting for the final patch to come out?
