Batman Arkham Knight PC version on sale this week

Posted on

One of the most anticipated releases earlier this year, Batman: Arkham Knight released to plenty of critical acclaim, but also a surprising amount of technical issues with its PC version. The issues became so troubling that Warner Bros. pulled the PC version of the game from being available for purchase while the developers worked on fixes for the game.

Finally, that work seems ready for those who already owned the PC version and those who have been wanting to buy it since the game’s June release.

In a post to Steam, WB announced that at 10 a.m. PT on Oct. 28, Batman: Arkham Knight will be released once again for PC, in addition to a major patch “that brings the PC version fully up-to-date with content that has been released for console (with the exception of console exclusives).”

A full list of the content that will be made available in addition to the main game, from different Batman costumes to AR challenges to additional story content, on Oct. 28 has been published on Steam.

Arkham Knight released on June 23, but WB announced that PC sales would be halted on June 24 after widespread reports of issues with that version of the game. It was then announced that developer Rocksteady would be taking charge of the game’s much-needed repairs.

EW’s A- review of Arkham Knight, based on the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One version of the game, called it “one of the best games available for the current console generation, as well as one of the best iterations of the Dark Knight, period.”
