The highly anticipated game launched on Tuesday but reports have begun sufarcing that people who have bought the PC edition of the title are experiencing significant issues preventing them from playing the game.
Amongst the issues are frame rates dropping at an incredible rate, sometimes into single digits, freezing, crashing and severe lagging.

“We greatly value our customers and know that while there are a significant amount of players who are enjoying the game on PC, we want to do whatever we can to make the experience better for PC players overall.
“The Batman: Arkham fans have continually supported the franchise to its current height of success, and we want to thank you for your patience as we work to deliver an updated version of Batman: Arkham Knight on PC so you can all enjoy the final chapter of the Batman: Arkham series as it was meant to be played.”
