The PC patch fixing DirectX 11 issues in Batman: Arkham City has gone live, but Rocksteady is suggesting folks running 32-bit versions of Windows 7 or Vista skip it for the time being. Apparently, there are a few issues, and those who prefer 32-bit need to wait on a follow-up patch, and console themselves with DX9 for the time being. Those running 64-bit should go ahead and download the patch, as it should fix any DX11 issues you may be experiencing. Other fixes in the patch are listed below the jump.
There’s also a new skin pack available for all versions which will run you $4.99/400 Microsoft Points. A shot of it is posted below.
