Batman: Arkham Knight PC Getting an "Interim" Patch in August
Players won't have to wait until September (or later) to begin getting fixes.
Following reports that the troubled PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight wouldn't be patched until at least September, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has announced plans to release an "interim" patch in August.
In a brief post on Arkham Knight's Steam page, Warner Bros. said that it, "Rocksteady, and our partners are targeting an interim patch update for existing players to be released in August." Specific details on what will be included in the patch weren't shared, only that it will deal with many of the issues mentioned in a post from late June. That update had talked about working on things like supporting frame rates over 30 FPS, resolving a low-resolution texture bug, adding AMD Crossfire support, and improving overall performance.
"We would like to thank you for your continued patience and invaluable feedback," the new post reads. "We are continuing to monitor and listen for any additional issues and are driving towards a full update for everyone as quickly as we possibly can."
It was reported this week that Australian retailer EB Games had recalled stock of Arkham Knight's PC version due to the fact that updates weren't expected until spring (which, in Australia, begins in September). The move by EB wouldn't be entirely unsurprising, considering the game's technical issues are so serious that it was pulled from Steam and store shelves.

The game's first DLC has been released on consoles, but with these issues ongoing, it's been delayed on PC. That's particularly unfortunate news for those who bought not only the game on PC, but also its season pass.
Warner Bros. allegedly knew about issues with the PC version "for months," but opted to focus on the console version. The company has yet to address these claims.
In the United States during June, Arkham Knight was the best-selling physical game at retail.
