After 4 months since the original launch and quick removal of the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight due to gamebreaking bugs and performance issues, the game is finally back on Steam, selling at €45.99, but is it fixed?
As a much needed apology, Warner Bros. are offering all the prior Batman games in the series to all who have already bought the game. The same offer goes to all buyers until November 17th, so that’s a pretty fair bargain for those disappointed after the state Arkham Knight was in on release.
Buyers will get, Arkham Asylum GOTY, Arkham City GOTY, Arkham Origins, and Arkham Origins Blackgate, as well as the upcoming Community Challenge Pack DLC and some Team Fortress 2 cosmetic items created by the Arkham Community.
While that’s all well and good though, is the game finally up to par? Well according to Steam reviews it’s much better for some, but it’s still not to an acceptable standard for most, continuing to get more and more downvotes. Interestingly, many reviews are now marked under “pre-release” despite only going up today and yesterday (when all the intern patches were applied), which definitely makes them feel they carry less weight even though they are just as relevant as the others.
At the moment people seem 50/50, some reporting that the game finally runs very well with no issues, while others can’t get the game to load, get constant crashes and/or still can’t get a smooth framerate, but you can check them out yourself here.
