THE BUZZ: A patch fixing a variety of issues in Batman: Arkham City has been released on Steam, and can be downloaded by users on their next sign in.

“We have just released a patch for Batman: Arkham City PC that provides fixes [for] a variety of DX 11 issues, as well as fixes for a few other non-DX 11 related issues,” reads the patch notes. ”Users running Windows 7 32 bit or Windows Vista 32 bit should ONLY use DX 9 settings until a future patch that addresses this specific issue is released. We are actively working to address the remaining issue tied to DX 11 for users running 32 bit versions of Windows Vista or Windows 7.”

The full patch notes:

  • Performance / hitching issues have been greatly improved for running in DX 11.
  • An issue with players running out of Video Memory or encountering a Rendering Thread Exceptions has been address. This was primarily affecting 32-bit Operating Systems.
  • A progression block after defeating Ra’s Al Ghul has been fixed. This was issue occurred primarily on lower end computer setups and described as Batman not readying his Reverse Batarang.
  • A crash that occurred when scrolling between the Character Bios and Arkham City Stories has been fixed.
  • A crash that occurred when selecting “Press Start” immediately when available at the Title Screen has been fixed. The issue was described as crashing/hard locking around the DLC (Downloadable Content) check.

EGM’s TAKE: Luckily Arkham City released relatively bug free, but players running DirectX 11 should be happy with this patch as it fixes a few related crashes and bugs.

Does anything else need patching? Let us know in the comments below.
