Four months after the console release hit and the PC version was pulled from the shelves, “Batman: Arkham Knight” finally resurfaced on PC and Steam this week with the hope that the game would finally be playable.
Whilst many of the problems have been fixed, there’s still reportedly plenty of errors being encountered by both Nvidia and AMD users playing it on PC with stuttering and crashes. It has gotten to the point of being bad enough that on the Steam community thread for the game, an administrator for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has taken a bold step.
The rep says the company is well aware of the issues with the game and they are going to continue to actively improve the game but will offer refunds not just for those who are still unable to play, but even for people who have purchased the game since back in June:
“Until the end of 2015, we will be offering a full refund on Batman: Arkham Knight PC, regardless of how long you have played the product. You can also return the Season Pass along with the main game (but not separately). For those of you that hold onto the game, we are going to continue to address the issues that we can fix and talk to you about the issues that we cannot fix.”
Further patches are expected in coming weeks to fix the few remaining problems with the PC version (namely SLI issues), but it looks like there probably won’t be a fully working ‘Arkham Knight’ on PC until around year’s end.
