Batman: Arkham Knight is now available for those who want to adventure through Gotham City as the caped crusader, but if you’re a PC gamer, you might want to reconsider playing it on your platform of choice as we’re learning its port isn’t good.
The majority of complaints appear to be aimed at Arkham Knight’s stuttering frame rates and a 30 frames-per-second (FPS) cap. Other reports claim a number of high-end graphics cards are struggling to maintain a stable frame rate, even with new drivers released by both Nvidia and AMD.
In our previous experiences, we had issues getting a stable frame rate in Batman: Arkham City. We even had to turn off DirectX 11 in order to make it somewhat playable. To hear Arkham Knight is also suffering poor optimization on PC isn’t exactly surprising, although we would have hoped Rocksteady Studios would have put a little more effort into its development.
If you want to try to make your Arkham Knight experience a little better, check out this NeoGAF thread that has some tips on how to change the game’s FPS cap and skipping the opening splash screens.
We’ve reached out to both Rocksteady Studios and Warner Bros. for comment on this story. We’ll update it once we receive a response.
