New Batman Arkham Asylum HD Texture Pack upgrades/enhances 50% of game’s textures

A few days ago, we informed you about a HD texture pack for NieR: Automata. However, it appears that’s not the only texture pack that modder GPUnity is currently working on. Today, the modder released a Batman Arkham Asylum texture pack that upgrades/enhances almost 50% of the game’s textures.

GPUUnity is using the GOTY version of Batman Arkham Asylum, so there might be some incompatibility issues with all the other versions. We haven’t tested this pack yet so we don’t know whether there are such issues. GPUUnity encouraged those that are facing such issues to inform him in order to resolve them.

GPUUnity has provided some comparison screenshots between the Batman Arkham Asylum texture pack and the vanilla textures. As we can clearly see, these brand new textures can undoubtedly enhance the game’s visuals, so they are kind of must-have for all Arkham Asylum fans.

It’s also worth noting that GPUUnity is also working on a texture pack for Batman Arkham City. While there isn’t any ETA yet on its release, GPUUnity claimed that he will release it really soon.

Those interested can download the Batman Arkham Asylum Texture Pack from here.

In this Texture pack, GPUUnity has included a few capes and two remastered batman suits. Moreover, players must set the Textures setting to “Very High” in order to enjoy these brand new textures. Regarding VRAM requirements, the modder was able to run this pack on an NVIDIA GTX970 at 1620p without any performance issues.

In order to install it, players will have to open Texmod, run the application and select package mode. Choose ShippingPC-BmGame.exe as your target application, then go to the smaller folder icon and use it to find the downloaded texture files.

Batman Arkham Asylum is the first game of the series that came out in 2009. The game is powered by Unreal Engine 3 and features some really cool NVIDIA hardware-accelerated PhysX effects. Given its age, we are almost certain that a lot of PC systems will have not trouble running it with those effects enabled.

Do note that this is not the final version of this mod. As such, we’ll be sure to let you know when, and if, a new version comes out.
