An interim patch designed to address some of the problems plaguing the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight is now in the testing phases, publisher Warner Bros. has announced.

Posting on the game's forum, WB Games community manager Adam Yorick said the teams "have been working hard" to address the issues with the PC version of the game.

"We are happy to confirm that we are now putting the first interim patch into testing," he continued. "If all goes well, we expect to issue the patch in the next few weeks."

The list of fixes and improvements in the patch can be found below.

  • Reduced frame rate hitches
  • Optimized system memory and VRAM usage

In addition to the above changes, the team working on improving the PC version's performance are also continuing to work on the following:

Posting on Twitter, studio co-founder and director of the Batman: Arkham series, Sefton Hill, also said the studio has its "best engineers" helping to fix the issues.
