It might have taken longer than expected, but a Batman: Return to Arkham patch has finally been released. This update finally fixes the frame rate issues that Batman: Arkham Asylum and Batman: Arkham City suffered from. The patch also has much better PS4 Pro support, so those that own one should be pleased.
Now that these issues have been fixed, fans should be able to enjoy both games. Gamers were worried about the two HD remasters when the first trailer came out. Despite having improved lighting, some of the faces were a bit off. This caused a delay, but the HD collection was eventually released in October for the PS4 and Xbox One.
While the two games were playable, they did suffer from some frame rate issues. Some gamers even had the games crash on them, which upset many. Many thought that Virtuous Games?? the developers that ported the game ? would ignore requests and feedback. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case and now we have the Batman: Return to Arkham patch.
However, there are still a few minor issues. According to High Def Digest, Batman: Arkham City still has some framerate drops on PS4 Pro. They aren’t as bad as before, but the system that runs at 4K will have to settle for 40-60 frames per second. These issues aren’t too bad for those with a regular PS4 and presumably the Xbox One.
Safe To Return To Arkham?
Few issue aside, the Batman: Return to Arkham patch should convince players to pick up the bundle. Players were initially weary of it after hearing frame rate drop reports, but most of that has been fixed. Should be a must-buy for those that have beaten Arkham Knight and want to relive the older (and better) Batman games.
Batman: Return to Arkham is available now on PS4 and Xbox One. A PC version wasn’t released due to the numerous issues Arkham Knight suffered from. Those that want to play with their computers can pick up regular versions of Arkham Asylum and Arkham City on Steam. Batman: Arkham Knight is also available for those that want the complete collection.
