Warner Bros. has acknowledged that the just-released Batman: Arkham Origins has some game-breaking bugs, and says a patch is on the way.
An official statement from the studio states that the development team has been working around the clock to fix problems reported by the game’s community, and that it expects a patch to be available 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,” it said.
Bugs identified include an infinite falling bug, another that removes the option to select “Continue” from the menu, and a third that keeps FreeFlow Focus mode locked despite the player reaching Shadow Vigilante rank three.
A fix is already available for those issues on PC, via a patch that also kills a bug that was preventing some players from navigating through the vent in the Burnley tower.
Warner Bros. also acknowledged there were some rarer problems in the Xbox 360 version of the game that it would continue to investigate, including the game freezing and crashing, and saves being corrupted.
“We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience caused and thank you all for your patience as we work to resolve the issues,” said Warner.
