'Batman: Arkham Knight' returns Wednesday to PC

Batman: Arkham Knight will be available once more on Steam beginning Wednesday, four months after its disastrous PC launch forced Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to suspend sales.

As the publisher announced early this month, all downloadable content released for the console versions will be available for the PC edition -- everything from augmented-reality challenges to story packs to skins and Batmobiles. Warner Bros. has a complete content rundown in a statement issued over the weekend.

Arkham Knight was abruptly pulled from the PC platform within a day of its June 23 debut, following a tidal wave of complaints about technical problems. However, that's done little to dampen enthusiasm: The game has already sold 5 million copies worldwide.

Although Arkham Knight the final chapter in Rocksteady Studios' blockbuster Arkham franchise, Warner Bros. has made clear it’s not the last Batman game — for obvious reasons.

“Batman is one of the cornerstone IPs for Warner Bros.,” Ames Kirshen, who oversees development of DC Comics games for Warner Bros. Interactive, said last month. “With the Arkham series, we were finally able to realize the full potential of the character.”
