Steam users reporting frame rate dips on high-end hardware and game file issues.
Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham Knight is currently available worldwide for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. However, issues have already begun to crop up for the PC version and they’re far from your usual glitches or bugs.
Several users on Steam are reporting issues with frame rate performance, including excessive drops when summoning the Batmobile. In some cases, frame rates would drop at low as 10 frames per second and this isn’t on your run of the mill GPU either. Users on Steam are reporting these issues with graphics cards like the GTX 980 and even the Titan X.
That’s not all – on restarting the game, users have found issues with the frame rate being locked to 30 FPS. This setting can be changed by heading to your game’s install directory and modifying the “maxfps” setting in the “BMSystemSettings.ini” file from 30 to 60 FPS.
It’s especially a shame when you consider those who pre-load the game have also run into crashes when attempting to decrypt files and play, which would lead to Steam downloading large portions (if not the entire game again) to verify the game’s cache.
We’ll keep you updated on other issues and how Rocksteady is responding to them.
