Although Warner Bros. have publicly conceded defeat with its PC port of Batman: Akrham Knight, that hasn't stopped the game from receiving another patch

A game that will no doubt go on to become the poster child for botched PC ports, Warner Bros.' Batman: Arkham Knight still hasn't been forgotten by the publisher, with a brand new patch being issued yesterday in an attempt to salvage at least a little pride from what can only be called a debacle of the highest order. Originally launched back in June, the PC version was soon pulled back into development in a bid to fix several game breaking issues before a second release in October. That proved to be similarly unsuccessful, however, and Warner Bros. ultimately issued a statement offering anyone who had purchased the game a full refund on their investment.

For those who have persevered, though, the latest list of fixes can be found below:

  • Fixed a hitch during some game saves
  • Fixed a Windows 10 issue causing the game to be unresponsive on launch when the keyboard language was set to Japanese, Japanese Microsoft IME, Korean, Chinese (Traditional) or Chinese (Simplified)
  • Fixed minor delay when aiming a gadget when playing with a keyboard and mouse
  • Fixed a bug causing full screen movies to play at half the monitor's refresh rate on some systems
  • Fixed players sometimes not being able to counter the Mini-Gun Brute after being spotted when playing as Nightwing or Batman
  • Fixed a performance drop that occurred when encountering Man-Bat for the first time
  • Fixed some Multi-Monitor specific bugs
  • Some improvements to mouse and keyboard bindings
  • Improved VRAM management to reduce framerate hitches
  • Stability improvements for rare crash issues
  • Fixed an issue causing certain types of lights & shadows to render incorrectly
  • Fixed an issue causing the game process to occasionally remain running in the background for a period of time
  • Fixed the Knightfall Protocol not being able to activate under certain conditions
  • Fixed a progression blocker that could occur in Stagg Airships when leaving the predator room after only knocking out one of the guards
  • Fixed damage states for Batman’s V8.03 skin in Story Mode after selecting an alternate skin for AR Challenges
  • Fixed missing rain effects on several Batman skins (fix for 1970s and Arkham Origins skins coming soon)
  • Added support for new DLC released on November 24th
  • Play as other characters in AR predator challenges
