Batman: Arkham Knight for the PC will finally be up for sale again on Steam this week, a full four months after it was pulled for being a less than stellar port. The widely derided version was blasted to pieces by fans for being plagued with bugs and framerate issues back when it first launched in June, but this updated release promises to fix all of that.
You can sweep it up again for $59.99 on Oct. 28, this Wednesday.
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. Season Pass holders will have access to all content released since launch
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.
Despite coming into the year as one of the most highly anticipated titles, the Arkham series lost a bit of luster due to the performance issues and underwhelming season pass content. It seems to me that many thought it was a solid enough game, but the impact and lasting appeal of Rocksteady’s last two offerings just aren’t there. I definitely didn’t like it as much as Arkham Asylum, which I would much rather go back through and play again some day.
What are your feelings about Rocksteady’s return to the series? Will an updated Steam release bring it back to your attention?
