The first interim patch for Batman: Arkham Knight's much-maligned PC port is in its final testing stage.

A community admin from publisher WB Interactive Entertainment said, "We are happy to confirm that we are now putting the first interim patch into testing. If all goes well, we expect to issue the patch in the next few weeks."

Originally set for August, the patch is understood to go some ways to fixing the port's heavily-publicised issues by re-optimising RAM and VRAM usage and reducing stutter in gameplay.

In addition, graphical features like V-sync, visual effects toggles, 30/60/90fps switches, and higher-resolution textures will be introduced.

Arkham Knight came out in June for new-gen consoles and PC, with the PC version quickly being pulled from shelves due to crippling performance issues.
