Warner Bros have updated the minimum specs for Batman Arkham Knight just before launch with bad news for those with older AMD cards.
Over on the Warner Bros Batman Forum, the announcement explains a slight bump in graphical requirements, particularly for AMD card owners who now need a 3GB card minimum to run the game.
This is a blow to owners of 1GB and 2GB cards who have managed to run almost every other game so far on their cards and comes after many people have already pre-purchased the game. NVidia owners can get away with 2GB RAM on their card.
This is the post from the forums:
“The minimum specs for Batman: Arkham Knight for PC have been adjusted and are listed below.
We also want to note that there are some known issues with the performance of Batman: Arkham Knight for PC owners using AMD graphics cards. We are working closely with AMD to rectify these issues as quickly as possible and will provide updates here as they become available. We thank you for your patience in this matter.
