If you bought the console version of Batman: Arkham Knight back in June, it's likely you've already seen the game's credits. If you bought the PC version, it's likely you spent a few hours gliding through Gotham's night sky until you got fed up with its bugginess and decided to return when Warner Bros. fixed their half-baked code.
Well, it's almost five months later and they still haven't. The game remains a broken mess and now, in an act that can only be seen as giving up, Warner is offering full refunds, the details of which you can check out HERE.
Problems began when the PC version launched on June 23, with players experiencing a whole host of game-breaking bugs, like...
Goons Humping Taxis
Batman Becoming Possessed
And a Floating Batmobile
Almost immediately, the publisher took drastic action, suspending all sales of the game until they could get it running in a more acceptable state.
October 28 was set as the date for Arkham Knight's re-release, but, unfortunately, the 'fixed' version of the game was still pretty busted. Warner has now decided to pull the rip cord and get the hell out of this mess by refunding their many disappointed customers.
The announcement came with an apology:
We are very sorry that many our customers continue to be unhappy with the PC version of Batman: Arkham Knight. We worked hard to get the game to live up to the standard you deserve, but understand that many of you are still experiencing issues.
Until the end of 2015, we will be offering a full refund on Batman: Arkham Knight PC, regardless of how long you have played the product. You can also return the Season Pass along with the main game (but not separately).
For those of you that hold onto the game, we are going to continue to address the issues that we can fix and talk to you about the issues that we cannot fix.
"the issues that we cannot fix" sounds a little suspicious to me. If I'd bought the game on PC, I'd cut my losses and get my money back while I still can.
The whole situation is a massive bummer, especially amidst reports that, months before it was released, Warner knew the game was going to launch in an unfinished state. Will you be asking for a refund?
