Batman: Arkham Origins Patch Out Next Week
If like me you have happened to play the latest Batman Arkham Origins since release there is a high chance you have either had your console freeze or had a game bug happen to you in that time.
Help is hand though, as WB Gamas are on the case it seems, as this is what they had to say on their official website for the game.
“During the past week, the Community Team has been well aware that some players have been encountering several issues with their games, some worse than others. We’ve been monitoring, reading, and gathering all the information from your reports on these issues. For that, we want to sincerely thank everyone who have posted on these forums. By reaching out to us and providing us with this valuable info, the dev teams have been able to test, reproduce, and resolve the majority of these issues.
We know that some of you have experienced frustration when posting on these forums, thinking your posts get lost or ignored and that no one from the team reads them. We can promise you that your posts are being read. We hear your frustration, we understand it, and we are here to find solutions to your issues by gathering the info you provide us, and relaying it to the dev team.
In addressing the issues that have become a top priority to the teams, here is the official statement from the teams of WB Games.
We’d like to sincerely thank everyone who has joined us since the launch of the game. We appreciate the fan support and also want to thank all the people in the field who have sent us their saved games as they have been invaluable in helping us identify the problems.
It has come to our attention that there are issues that are negatively impacting the experience for some players. The team has been working around the clock to review, validate and pinpoint the problems that have been reported and we have identified three main issues which we are tackling first, and are listed below. For these issues, we expect the software update to be available within the next week. Rest assured, we are continuing to monitor all channels for other issues that players are experiencing and will release additional updates as they become available.
1) Infinite Falling/Falling Out Of World – All platforms
Some players have been stuck in an endless loop of falling, making it impossible to complete certain missions and progress through the single-player campaign. We believe we have identified the issue and are currently testing the software update, which will push most players back to their previous save so that they will not be stuck in an infinite loop.
2) Unable To Continue Story – All Platforms
Some players can see their story progress in the main menu, but once they choose the story slot they don’t see an option to “Continue” and only “New Game” shows up. This issue should be resolved and the “Continue” option will once again be available.
3) FreeFlow Focus mode not unlocking upon reaching “Shadow Vigilante” rank 3 will be fixed – All Platforms
Specific to the PC, an update that addresses the above issues, as well as the following, recently went live:
1) Fix for progression blocker keeping some players from navigating through the vent in the Burnley tower.
We have not yet solved the following rare issues and are continuing to investigate.
1) Corrupted Saves – Xbox 360 only
Players have reported losing their saved game to data corruption. Specifically, when you try to choose a story slot to continue, it says “Corrupted” and if you select it, an error message appears which says, “The save is corrupt. Please delete it.” We believe we know what is causing this and need a few more days to validate before pushing a patch through.
2) Ongoing Crashing/Freezing Issues – Xbox 360 only
Players have reported recurring crashing and freezing while playing the game. We have been working hard to track down and resolve the problem as quickly as possible. We believe we know what is causing these issues and need a few more days to validate before pushing this patch through. In the meantime, some players have managed to avoid the freezing by disconnecting their console from the Internet while playing.
NOTE: Your console or PC must be connected to the Internet in order to receive any updates. When connected, the updates will be automatically applied when you start up the game while connected to PlayStation Network, Xbox Live or Steam.
We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience caused and thank you all for your patience as we work to resolve the issues.”
No official date other than next week at the moment for the patch, but with many already selling on or trading in the game this has been anything but a smooth release for the game, and certain gamers will be sure to remember this next time around.
