Console gamers have beat the living snot out of Arkham Knight. They talk about the ending. They talk about the awkward Batmobile moments. They’ve told you how great the game is. Take that console gamers. Finally PC gamers get their chance October 28th, to experience what console gamers have been experiencing- for the last four months.
Rocksteady announced on Steam today Batman: Arkham Knight is going to be re-released on Steam. The early Saturday announcement goes into great detail over the amounts of console updates PC gamers are getting (these are the console content released since June) and DLC availability. Pretty cool right? Those who bought season passes early on you will have access to all the season pass content up to this point. That’s fantastic, right?
In this update there is no mention of what was fixed. SLI support? Improved Nvidia Gameworks optimization? Compensation for the sham of a PC release? Some gamers on Steam forums are hopeful; but no official list of fixes were posted. Other gamers have picked up on the omission and are concerned. All we know as of right now is there is a patch coming, and DLC will be on par with console editions.
Judging from the superb state of Shadow of Mordor, Batman: Arkham Asylum, and even Mad Max on PC- we are hopeful that Warner Brothers and Rocksteady can deliver an equally optimized PC edition. There is a distinct possibility that Wednesday’s patch update will have full notes preceding it that explains what has been fixed and updated. We will know in just four days.
