Rocksteady have released patch 1.09 for Batman: Arkham Knight. It’s a relatively small update, adding character selection for AR challenges, and a host of other, smaller changes as well. AR challenges are objective oriented challenges that you can find scattered throughout Gotham- until now, you could only play through them as Batman. Now you will be able to play as any of the other playable characters as well.
“In the AR Challenge menu, go to the AR Challenge you’d like to play, and press the directional pad left or right – you’ll see the leaderboard portion of the screen is replaced with portraits of the characters you have available, and the name of the character in the selection box will turn yellow,” Rockseady said. “Hit X (PS4) / A (XB1) to confirm, then get stuck into combat with the character of your choice.”
In addition, full patch notes for the update follow below:
New feature: Play as other characters in AR combat challenges.
New feature: Hard mode for AR combat and Batmobile combat challenges when New Story + is finished.
Removed AR walls where possible to improve immersion.
Fixed and reset the leaderboards for the Newton’s Cradle AR challenge – replay to resubmit your previous high score.
Support for October additional content.
Batman: Arkham Knight is out now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
