Batman Returns

By Bobfish21-08-2015

No, not the shitty Tim Burton movie, don't worry. As teased earlier this week, Batman: Arkham Knight is coming back to Steam. And, we are assured, it will be done right this time. Though there is still no specific date, we should expect a concrete update within a fortnight. The "team" (no clear indication of that's Warner or Rocksteady staff) are to begin final testing of an interim patch, uhm, should already have actually. Which is troubling in itself, that they're calling it an "interim" patch. But if it works, what difference does it make?

An incomplete list of fixes includes the much maligned FPS lock being...not removed, but, well, see for yourself:

Reduced frame rate hitches
Optimized system memory and VRAM usage
Improved performance on all GPUs (requires the latest drivers)
o Min Spec AMD GPU is once again the Radeon HD 7870 2GB

More Robust In-Game Settings, including:
o Added the ability to change settings for Max FPS to 30/60/90
o Added toggles for Motion Blur, Chromatic Aberration, and Film Grain
o Added a "High" Texture Resolution value
o Added Texture Filtering option
o Added an Adaptive V-Sync option (NVIDIA only)
o Added VRAM Usage Meter
o Added Mouse Sensitivity Slider & Mouse Smoothing Option

Fixed low resolution texture bugs
Fixed hitches when running on mechanical hard drives (HDD)

Now, the FPS lock I could honestly care less about (bite me) but the game being playable is most decidedly a good thing. If it actually works that is. But considering how powerful the backlash was, I'm inclined to believe there wouldn't be any form of announcement if there wasn't any confidence in being right. So basically, fingers crossed that it's sooner than later, and keep your eyes on us for a definitive rel;ease date. Because we assure you, you will know as soon as we do.
