Yes, we know that posting news about patches tends to be pretty tedious stuff, but PC players have been waiting for word on when Batman: Arkham City will actually work properly with DirectX 11. Upon launch, the game had some serious stuttering and framerate issues when played in DX11, leaving people no choice but to go back to the dependable (but not as pretty) DirectX 9.
Well, according to a Steam news post, a newly-released patch for the title “fixes a variety of DX11 issues”, the upshot being “Performance / hitching issues have been greatly improved for running in DX11”.
Unfortunately, it’s also advised that users of 32-bit Windows 7 and Vista still stick with DirectX 9, so not all of the issues have been solved yet. If you have a 64-bit system though, you should be good to go. Hopefully it won’t be too long before everyone can Batrope around the place in style.
A couple of other bugs and crashes have also been addressed. You can read the full patch notes at the source link below.
