Warner Bros’s Batman: Return to Arkham has today received a title update that brings “PS4 Pro visual enhancements” to the remastered collection.
However, users have been taking to social media to complain that the 1.02 patch stealthily locks the game at 30 frames per second; PlayStation 4 Pro owners had previously reported an unlocked frame rate of up to 60 fps.
The game’s developer Virtuos has form for courting controversy; in recent months, certain visual and performance aspects of its Assassin’s Creed: The Ezio Collection remaster were heavily criticised.
The full patch notes for Return to Arkham’s 1.02 title update are as follows:
- Fixes game crashes experienced by some players.
- Additional frame rate / performance optimizations.
- PlayStation 4 Pro visual enhancements added.
Batman: Return to Arkham was originally released back in October, and contains remastered versions of last-gen titles Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.
