It’s not very often that we return to a game, but in this case, we couldn’t say no. Batman AK was one of the most anticipated of early 2015 and the final game in the Batman: Arkham series, so the hype surrounding it meant the game had to hit the top marks from launch. Sadly we all know that Batman AK had a very rough start to life with PC performance being the major issue. Users complained of the lack of graphical settings and the 30FPS cap. While we brought Batman AK performance figures in this state; it wasn’t always going to be as reliable with the game undergoing major work.
Developers decided to pull the game from Steam and other outlets to prevent more consumers purchasing a digital copy. This worked for a while and developers have managed to implement a good amount of updates to improve stability, graphics, and overall player enjoyment.
With the overhaul to the graphics portion, we have decided to return to the game and re-test all of our current generation graphics cards on the newest drivers available. To maintain consistency with our previous Gaming performance articles, these graphics cards will be pitted against the game at the highest optimal settings across three of the most popular resolutions.
Let’s begin shall we?
