Have You Played… Batman: Arkham Knight?

Have You Played… Batman: Arkham Knight?

15:30, 07 Jun 2017

Have You Played? is an endless stream of game retrospectives. One a day, every day of the year, perhaps for all time. Maybe it’s the E3 scent in the air or maybe it’s just that I’m craving some big budget biffing, but I’m missing my favourite Multiple-A franchises right now. The Arkham games in particular. […]

Batman Foils Penguin: Arkham Knight Scraps Linux, Mac

11:34, 04 Feb 2016

Oh dear. It’s a shame that Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] has been such a mess on PC because it is a pretty fun game. But it was pulled from sale the day after launching due to its awful performance, took five months to relaunch, and was still a bit wonky after that. That’ll sour […]

Batman: Arkham Knight DLC Wrapped Up

Batman: Arkham Knight DLC Wrapped Up

18:59, 22 Dec 2015

Even Batman wants to simply kick back at Wayne Manor over Christmas in his Batdressing gown and Batslippers (they’re just hollowed-out flying foxes, I hear), so Rocksteady Studios have wrapped up Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] with a few days to spare. The final load of DLC is out today – and I do mean […]

Batman: Arkham Knight Drops New Batpatch

Batman: Arkham Knight Drops New Batpatch

Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] returned to sale in October, after months of work fixing the poor performance that saw it pulled from sale. It was still wonky. That’s a shame, becase it’s a pretty good game according to our Adam. Work still continues, and this week has brought another patch which fixes more things […]

Arkham Knight Officially Abandons Multi-GPU Support

Arkham Knight Officially Abandons Multi-GPU Support

10:07, 20 Nov 2015

I’ve long felt that multi-GPU systems are playing with expensive fire, and even worse can, like audiophilia, lead to an anxious, ongoing preoccupation with whether you have the ‘best’ at the expense of actually enjoying what you’re playing/hearing. Even so, I sympathise with people who invested both money and time into their SLI or Crossfire […]

Wot I Think: Batman – Arkham Knight

There’s been so much talk about Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] but one question has been left unanswered, at least round these parts. Is it any good? While the game was unavailable, there seemed little point in telling you Wot I Think but I did in fact play this latest Batventure in its entirety when […]

The Arkham Knight Re-Release Isn’t Going Down Well

10:26, 29 Oct 2015

Last night’s re-release of the troubled PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] tries to fix two things: one is the misbehaving technology, and the other is the reputation. The game was pulled off Steam in June after a torrent of complaints, refund requests and negative customer reviews. No doubt its makers had hoped […]

Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] will be re-released on October 28th, just over four months after it was pulled from sale for launching with big performance problems, publishers Warner Bros. announced today. After months of interim patches fixing it up for folks who bought it while it was available, they’re planning one big final patch […]

Bam! Bif! Pow! Those noises and more may finally emerge from your computer at the end of this month when Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] finally really for real reals will be fixed enough to be re-released. Its delayed DLC will arrive then too. This isn’t much more specific than the last update from Warner […]

“Coo-ee! Is that the Batcar from the Batfilms?” you might wonder. “That’ll be more Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] DLC, I’m sure,” you’ll intuit, and I’ll be both impressed and a bit weirded out by your adherence to RPS formatting. “But what does this matter to us when the game still isn’t back on sale […]

Batman: Arkham Knight’s New Batperformance Batpatch

16:10, 04 Sep 2015

The thing about Batman, people have repeatedly told me in pubs, is that he can overcome any situation and anyone because he plans for everything. Confirming that Warner Bros. are not run by an billionaire who gets his jollies wearing a wacky costume to beat up poor people, the launch of Batman: Arkham Knight [official […]

Zam! Biff! Pow! Bap! Awk! Boff! Flrbbbbb! Vronk! Zlott! Zlonk! Swa-a-p! Crunch-eth! These onomatopoeias and more are the sounds that have surely filled meeting rooms at Warner Bros. since the disastrous PC launch of Batman: Arkham Knight [official site]. Almost four weeks after pulling the game from sale until they’d fixed it up, it seems […]

Given that Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] is not yet back on sale, after publishers Warner Bros. pulled it from stores due to shonky performance, it’s no surprise that its DLC is being delayed. That is, however, now official. While next week will bring Batgirl and her own brand of Batbiffing to console versions in […]

The first in a new (hopefully) weekly series, in which the RPS hivemind gathers to discuss/bicker about/mock the most pressing (or at least noisiest) issues in PCgamingland right now. Hot Takes are go. Alec: It will surprise literally no-one to hear that we are discussing Bat-Like Man: Arkham Kerrnigut and its somewhat disastrous PC port, […]

Batman: Arkham Knight Mod Unlocks Other Characters

Okay, so the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] was so shoddy that Warner Bros have temporarily removed it from sale. That doesn’t mean those of you playing despite the temperamental frame rate and occasional freeze can’t enjoy a little something not available on console, namely, a mod which allows you to play […]

Arkham Knight Batpatch Released, And Future Batplans

I would have preferred it if Warner Bros. had decided not to release Batman: Arkham Knight [official site] in a wonky state rather than chuck it out then quickly pull it from sale and throw people who’ve just finished a game back to crunching. But they’re the publisher we need right now, not the one […]

Warner Suspends Sales Of Batman: Arkham Knight PC

In an absolutely extraordinary move, Warner Bros. have announced they’re to stop selling Batman: Arkham Knight on PC until they’ve fixed the massive technical issues so many are having. Posting to their forum, they stated, “We take these issues very seriously and have therefore decided to suspend future game sales of the PC version while […]

Rocksteady Fess Up To Unsteady Arkham Knight PC

Batman: Arkham Kerniggut [official site] is, by all accounts, a pretty good videogame with a pretty shonky PC port. Everyone on RPS who’s tried it has had framerate issues of varying degrees – I think I got off lightest, but my FPS is still all over the place to the extent that I’ll probably shelve […]
