Batman: Arkham Knight had a fairly tumultuous PC release, didn't it (assuming that ‘tumultuous' means horrible ghastly-ass shitstorm like I think it does; I was never one for fancy words and book learnin')? It arrived as a broken, bug-ridden disaster, which had to be removed from Steam at one point for being literally unplayable.

That was some time ago now, and the situation's improved. But it's been a long journey. A journey of apologies, attempted fixes and broken promises/dreams. Will Arkham fans ever learn to trust again? It's time for some grovelling PRtastic from Rocksteady to get angry PC players back on board. This latest addition to the PC version won't do that, but it's a cool little touch. Let's take a look.

Crime Fighter Challenge Pack #6 hit the game earlier this week. These are challenge mode maps from Arkham City, chosen by the fans on the games' forums. All the iconic maps, essentially: Wayne Manor, the Batcave… you know the deal. As Kotaku reports, Rocksteady made this update available early "for fans who have purchased the game for PC and are connected to the Internet," while console players have a few extra days to wait.

None of which is the kind of stuff to foul your undercrackers about. What's neat, though, is that the developer has added quotes from the fans themselves to the menu screens, detailing why these stages are so memorable:

How many AAA games do you see that in? Not many, buddy boy.
