Terrible news for the pirates of the PC gaming community; according to several sources we have come to know that the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight is using Denuvo DRM. For those who are not aware of what Denuvo is, it is quite simply the most complicated anti-tampering system that has been used in games like Dragon Age: Inquisition, FIFA 15, Battlefield: Hardline, and Lords of the Fallen. Two of them are still not cracked.
Apart from the Denuvo issue, the game is also suffering from severe performance issues on both AMD and Nvidia GPUs. Gamers have reported that even rigs running on GTX 970 are having troubles maintaining 30 frames. Oh, did we mention that the game is locked at 30 frames per second? Yes, that’s true. However, there is a simple work around that allows you to unlock the frame-rate but it still sounds stupid of the developers to lock a game on PC.
The work around to unlock the frame rate is as followed.
navigate to the folder where your game is installed and look for the file named ‘\BmGame\Config\BmSystemSettings.ini’ and look for the line ‘Max_FPS=30’ and simply changed the value to 9999. The end result will look like ‘Max_FPS=9999’
So far no official word has been given by either Rocksteady or Warner Bros but we will keep you posted about it.
Needless to say; Batman DOES have issues.
