With incoming patches for PC, Warner Bros. confirm they will take time to ensure they get the right fixes in place.
Since release on the PC, Batman: Arkham Knight has experienced countless problems, which has led to the game being temporary suspended from Steam. Developer Rocksteady, along with publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have released a patch on PC to fix certain issues, one being the disabling of the game’s rain effects. The updates in the first patch includes:
- Fixed a crash that was happening for some users when exiting the game.
- Fixed a bug which disabled rain effects and ambient occlusion. We are actively looking into fixing other bugs to improve this further
- Corrected an issue that was causing Steam to re-download the game when verifying the integrity of the game cache through the Steam client
- Fixed a bug that caused the game to crash when turning off Motion Blur in BmSystemSettings.ini. A future patch will enable this in the graphics settings menu

- Support for frame rates above 30FPS in the graphics settings menu
- Fix for low resolution texture bug
- Improve overall performance and framerate hitches
