Nvidia and Warner Bros Willing To Fix Arkham Knight for PC
Batman: Arkham Knight had a bad start because from the beginning, news was that the PC version is not playable due to some performance issues. Warner Bros., is now working with Nvidia on board to issue a fix.
The video game had a disappointing release and even went off market immediately after the bad performance, non-compatibility news broke out. The market retailers took the product off shelves and stated that it will be back when the company fixes it completely.
Nvidia started off selling its GeForce cards with Batman: Arkham Knight bundled with it. Although the company is now selling Metal Gear Solid V with the graphics card but I believe it has done enough damage already.
Tom Peterson, Nvidia’s Gameworks engineer calls the collaboration a ‘goodwill gesture’ towards Warner Bros. He claims that the company is focusing on helping Warner Bros. developers and that a patch will be released sometime in August to address the performance issues.
“We have 200 to 300 engineers that are actually visual scientists,” Peterson stated. “They’re the very best out there. We’ve taken the strategy that says let’s record exactly what they’ve got in their minds, convert it to algorithms … test it and QA it, and then supply it as middleware effectively to game developers.”
If you ask me, I believe that it may be possible that Nvidia already knew that this issue existed. Why would a company like Nvidia give bundle offer without even testing the thing itself? Well this might have cost the company the consumers’ doubt.
