Arkham Knight Is Coming Back To PC

Arkham Knight Is Coming Back to PC

Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment says that they expect to put the crippled version of the latest Batman game back on sale by the end of the October.

In an announcement last night, the Arkham Knight publisher also said that the DLC already released for the game's console versions will be supported in the same time frame.

"As many of you know, we released a major patch for Batman: Arkham Knight PC a few weeks ago. While there were significant performance improvements made to the game, the teams are continuing to work on the additional updates that were outlined in our previous post. We expect these updates to be ready at the end of October, at which time the PC version will be made available for purchase. In addition, support for all DLC that has been released for the console versions will be in place.   Thanks again for your continued patience and support. We'll be sure to update everyone as soon as the update is live."

It's been three months since WBIE suspended sales of Arkham Knight on PC, a move that came after it became apparent that the non-console iteration was released with many technical woes.


    End of October before I can play it properly. Just shit considering I bought retail therefor could not refund.
    I did play other things and there has been one patch already but still.

      Yeah it plays much better with the recent patch however there's still no sli support. It has allowed me to finish a couple of games before starting this one but now it's so close to fallout 4 I may not start it anyway...

      For the record in Australia you can definitely refund a faulty product regardless of what dodgy retailers tell you.

        Unfortunately I got a UK retail copy from Ozgameshop.

          They technically work as an Aus business, charging Aus dollars etc. I think they're actually bound by Australian Consumer laws.

          Not 100% but in future would be worth checking.

    And still nothing approaching an olive branch to PC players. You know, say what you will about Ubisoft and Assassin's Creed Unity's botched launch - at least they had the decency to offer the DLC for free as a consolation. All Warner Bros. is offering is the ability to finally pay full price and play the f*cking game 4 months late.

      Not only that, but there's still no guarantee it's the game it should've been...

        A lot of people with the working version on console feel it is not the game it should of been either (plot and mechanics wise). Way to go out like a limp dick Rocksteady.

          I'm one of them.

          The story goes like this:

          Beginning: Great.
          Setup: Great.
          3/4 mark: Oh c'mon.

    At this point in time, I'd honestly not buy the game on PC until the impending GOTY edition is released at the end of the games cycle. It's not the worst idea guys, it's a single player game meaning the story is the draw instead of player count.

    Then there's me with XBOX one version - the story was awesome guys, and the gameplay of the main campaign is good, but tank busting was way too easy and frequent.

      Personally, I found the story great until around the 2/3rds mark when they started wimping out on all the great, daring stuff they did. A true pity. :(

    Hoorah...just in time for Fallout 4 :P This is going on the back-burner unfortunately.

    All I want is for them to release the DLC for the people who COULD play the game. My computer was one of the few good enough to play the game with no problems and I keep seeing all this console DLC being released that I want to play!

    they expect to put the crippled version of the latest Batman game back on sale

    I sure hope not...

    But they've lost me as an early purchaser. After already waiting 3 months, and having had a good chunk of the story accidentally spoiled for me by console gamers, I'm happy to wait until the "GOTY" edition hits a Steam sale.

      This is absolutely the right idea, or wait until you catch it cheap in a sale. Even saying that, it's not as good a game as the Arkham Asylum, in my opinoon anyway, I really hated anything involving the batmobile

    To little too late. Great games have been churned out like crazy this year and people move from talking about (purchasing) one to the next. I'm waiting for the inevitable 70% sale on steam or GMG
