Batman: Arkham Knight asks for an absurd amount of RAM from Windows 10 users

Hey there, PC gaming friend. Did you hear the news? Batman: Arkham Knight has been re-released for your platform of choice. It’s supposedly stable enough to sell now, and that means folks are snapping up the Dark Knight’s latest gaming crusade.

There’s trouble at the mill, girl! It looks like Warner Bros. and Rocksteady weren’t able to get this puppy firing on all cylinders before shipping it out. If you’ve upgraded to Windows 10 (which I assume a lot of folks reading a tech/gaming/nerd goodness blog have), you’re gonna need a lot of RAM to run this one properly.

The publisher officially advises that Windows 10 users have at least 12GB of RAM in order to run Batman: Arkham Knight smoothly. 12. 12 of them, folks. Windows 7 and Windows 8? They don’t demand 12GB, just Windows 10. Here’s the publisher’s actual advice.

For Windows 10 users, we’ve found that having at least 12GB of system RAM on a PC allows the game to operate without paging and provides a smoother gameplay experience.

No thanks.

Windows 10 users on Steam are reporting that with 8GB of RAM (a more standard amount), Batman: Arkham Knight still stutters.

What do you think, folks? Is this re-release acceptable?
