For anyone who bought Batman: Arkham Knight for their PC through Steam, your hard-earned money will be coming back after the game was unsuccessful on the PC platform.
[dropcap size=small]I[/dropcap]t’s common for games to have bugs when they first come out. It happens all the time, but it’s rare to see a game still have bug problems when the game came out in the summer. That’s the case for Batman: Arkham Knight for PC.
The refund was offered only days after a cleaned up version of the game was released to PC players. The game was released for PC back in June, but it was pulled because of countless bugs in the game that made it unplayable to PC players.
The consensus is that the bugs emerged over the attempt to convert the game, that was originally made, from console to the PC platform. From the updated release, Warner did note that players who had Windows 7 consistently had a bug that made them restart their computer.
On Windows 10, players were recommended to have 12GB of Ram, which is a lot more than is required for modern PCs. Players that played the updated PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight have said on Reddit that the game doesn’t feel different and that nothing was fixed.
Warner made a statement that they were “sorry” that many people “continue to be unhappy with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight.”
Because of the constant bug problems with the PC version, Warner has offered a full refund for those who bought the full game via Steam until the end of 2015. Those who want to keep playing the game will have bug fixes provided for them.
However, there is a problem that Warner says they “cannot fix.” Those who purchased the game outside of Steam (gaming stores or anywhere else) will not be able to receive the refund.
Make sure to get your refund for your game while the offer still stands!
