Four months after it was pulled from retail, the "Batman: Arkham Knight" PC version makes a comeback. But the issues it's infamously known for are still here, according to gamers.

WB Games made good on its promise of an "Arkham Knight's" PC relaunch before the end of Oct. but it failed to fix bugs that affected the game during its initial release back in June.

In a statement, Warner Bros. warned users that full SLI and Crossfire support for the game is still lacking. It assured players that they're working with Nvidia and AMD "to address stability issues on certain cards related to the latest drivers."

It also warned of "a hard drive paging issue with some GPUs" affecting Windows 7 users after "extended gameplay sessions." Reportedly, the solution is to relaunch the game.

WB also has a recommendation for those experiencing paging issues with "Batman: Arkham Knight" on Windows 10 - have "at least 12GB of RAM" on your PC for "a smoother gameplay experience."

As Motherboard pointed out, "that's too much RAM" since the recommended system requirements for the game is just 8GB of RAM. Also, "12GB will help anything run smoother because that's a lot of RAM."

The website also noted that the community are complaining of stuttering, lag, frame rate drops, crashing and other glitches.

As of this writing, the discussion thread on Steam now has 179 mostly-negative comments about the PC version relaunch. Some users said they were able to play the game though.

"It might not be as bad as the initial launch, but it certainly doesn't seem like the relaunch has gone smoothly," Motherboard said.

So what has WB been doing with the game's PC version all this time?

Eurogamer talked to Digital Foundry, who provides technical analysis of games, which reportedly tested "Batman: Arkham Knight" PC version and found that "no further improvements from its interim patch in September."

"The only noticeable changes were the addition of support for add-on and season pass content," the website said.
