When Batman: Arkham Knight was released back in June, the Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions received critical acclaim. The PC version though? It barely even ran. Warner Bros. Interactive had to pull the version from stores it was so bad. But as they say, time heals all wounds. The publisher has announced that they are now ready to rerelease the game into the wild.
The finale to Rocksteady’s Arkham trilogy will return to Steam on Wednesday, October 28th at 10:00 a.m. PDT. A patch will be issued to coincide with the rerelease which “brings the PC version fully up-to-date with content that has been released for console (with the exception of console exclusives).”
Warner Bros. then goes on to list a plethora of content that PC players will have access to as of Wednesday. The majority of it, however, is paid DLC that Warner Bros. encourages you to purchase so that you can “access all content released since launch”. So yes, now that you are finally able to properly play the game that many of you purchased four months ago, go buy all of that lackluster DLC. Hell of an apology, Warner Bros.
The Steam post from Warner Bros. Interactive can be found here. It lists all of the available DLC you can pickup with your Batman: Arkham Knight season pass there. For those that will be playing the game for the first time later this week, it’s a blast. Victory Point’s Andrew Esposito gave the console version an 8 earlier this year.
