Good news for Batman fans as Rocksteady has a new patch for the PC version of Batman: Arkham City. Although we don’t have enough info about it, we do know that this patch will address the stuttering cut-scene issue that some players have experienced and – most probably – the game’s DX11 performance. According to Sarah Wellock, Rocksteady’s European Community Manager, the patch is with G4WL for submission and awaits Microsoft’s certification. And as we’ve said and before, this is precisely why developers should ditch G4WL.
Batman: Arkham City builds upon the intense, atmospheric foundation of Batman: Arkham Asylum, sending players flying through the expansive Arkham City – five times larger than the game world in Batman: Arkham Asylum – the new maximum security “home” for all of Gotham City’s thugs, gangsters and insane criminal masterminds.
Featuring an incredible Rogues Gallery of Gotham City’s most dangerous criminals including Catwoman, The Joker, The Riddler, Two-Face, Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Mr. Freeze and many others, the game allows players to genuinely experience what it feels like to be The Dark Knight delivering justice on the streets of Gotham City.
It certainly is an amazing game, though its engine is bugged to death, especially with those PhysX effects. You can read our Performance Analysis for it here.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
