Warner Bros. Montreal has laid out issues it’s looking to address in future Gotham Knights patches, including performance issues for players on PC and console.
In a thread on the game’s official Twitter, the team said it wanted to outline some changes it expects to put into the live game, as well as give a general timeline for incoming patches. Those playing on PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S can expect a patch by “the end of the week,” that will address “needed fixes” that have come to light since Gotham Knights’ launch last week.
Broadly, Warner Bros. Montreal says it’s aware of PC and console players experiencing performance challenges and is working on a patch to improve overall performance, specifically noting frame rate stability on consoles. This follows controversy earlier this month where it was confirmed Gotham Knights would only run at 30fps on console, with no option for a higher frame rate performance mode to maintain an “untethered co-op experience.”
The latest patch for PC players went live yesterday, October 26, and alongside general bug fixes, also addressed crashing during the Harley Quinn Hospital Boss Fight. As of this writing, the studio is also investigating a compatibility issue with Nvidia Ansel.
Performance aside, Gotham Knights has a fair share of issues, with IGN’s review citing “poor combat, a transparently predictable mystery, and grueling progression” as drawbacks in the co-op Bat Family game.
