Has anyone got this on PC? Its been pulled from sale for PC due to so many issues. Really bad show from Iron Galaxy (they were incharge of the porting from console not Rocksteady)
http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/2015-06-25-warner-suspends-batman-arkham-knight-pc-salesUPDATE 26TH JUNE 9AM BST: Batman: Arkham Knight creator Rocksteady has pledged its best engineers to the job of fixing the PC version, as one would hope. The PC version of Arkham Knight was - optimised might be the wrong word - tailored by Iron Galaxy.
"Totally supported decision to suspend PC version," Rocksteady co-founder and Batman: Arkham Knight game director Sefton Hill tweeted. "We have our best engineers at Rocksteady working like crazy to help fix the issues ASAP."
Nevertheless, the game remains suspended from sale and the issues unresolved.
http://www.geek.com/games/batman-ar...-publisher-suggests-you-get-a-refund-1626234/Batman: Arkham Knight was released across Xbox One, PS4, and PC on Monday, and nobody could have predicted the backlash the game got within hours from PC gamers. The game is locked at 30fps, regularly drops down to 10fps, and even suffers major slow down in the menu system.
Gamers who haven’t already requested a refund are patiently waiting for a patch to solve the issues. However, that could take some time. And now we know how bad the situation is because publisher Warner Bros. has suspended further sales of Arkham Knight on PC. They are even suggesting you ask for a refund if you can’t wait for the issues to be resolved.
In a post on the Warner Bros. Games’ forums, community admin Yorick explains that sales are being suspended, “while we work to address these issues to satisfy our quality standards.” That’s fine, but anyone reading that statement will instantly wonder what happened to the quality checks before the game was released on PC. Clearly, they just did not happen.
The game’s problems go beyond just poor performance, though. Eurogamer’s Digital Foundry team did a thorough review of the game and found it to be missing many of the visual effects found in the console versions. They also state removing the 30fps lock doesn’t do much, even if you turn all the visual settings that are available down to their minimum levels and run on a high end system.
So the recommendation remains not to buy Batman: Arkham Knighton PC, and Warner Bros. has now ensured that can’t happen. How long will it take to fix the issues? It could be weeks, although I’m sure it’s the number one priority internally due to the negative PR storm this has created.
