Many of the game's biggest problems to be addressed.
In a few weeks, the healing can begin for PC players patiently waiting for the 'Arkham Knight' fixes they so desperately need. That's according to a post by Adam Yorick, community manager for WB Games, who took to the game's official forums to announce the interim patch promised last month has entered the testing phase:
"We are happy to confirm that we are now putting the first interim patch into testing. If all goes well, we expect to issue the patch in the next few weeks. We’ll be sure to report back in the next two weeks on how the testing is coming along."
The fixes to be addressed by the patch include the following:
- 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)
In addition, the team working on fully fixing up the PC port the way it should is also tending to the new features console folk have been enjoying since launch. Namely, the DLC and Photo Mode. Be on the lookout for an update on that.
