Full system requirements for Batman: Arkham City reported on Oct-20-2011

Batman: Arkham City is an action packed sequel to Batman: Arkham Asylum released in 2009. The PC version is delayed to 15 November 2011 in North America and 18 November 2011 in the European countries. The game is available for pre-order from our partners at gamersgate.com for less than the listed price. Only the minimum requirements are out at the moment.

Lets take a look at the complete Batman: Arkham City system requirements...

Batman: Arkham City Minimum System Requirements

OS: Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2.4 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 4800+

RAM: 2 GB

GFX: ATI 3850HD 512 MB or NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT 512MB

DX: 9c

HDD: 17 GB Hard Disc space

 

Batman: Arkham City Recommended System Requirements

OS: Microsoft Windows 7

CPU: Dual core CPU 2.5 GHz

RAM: 4GB

GFX: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 460

 

As you can see the Batman Arkham City minimum system requirments are not too high but the recommended graphics card is a GTX460. Minimum requirements suggests a 3 year old computer should be able to pick up the strain but if you want to turn all graphical features on you had better be sporting a current card.

However, we are expecting this game to still be pretty accessible to mid range machines so check out our adjusted requirements listed on the game page and of course, when you get to play the game please let us know how it played on the ratings page.

The optimization is pretty bad. I only can get 15-20 fps in low with dx 11. The fighting always becomes " slow motion".

Yes, I'm using dedicated GPU to run this game. This game can run on dx 10 only. I got 20 somehing fps in medium dx 10. Is this game capped with 30 fps?

Wow, I well meet the requirements for the game, but it seems to be running very "choppy" for me. I have been finding this problem with other games that I am well over the requirements for so it is nothing to do with my pc specs. Any suggestions on what I should do please? :(

The game is not very well optimized, and memory leaks occur often in this game… Try lowering the texture quality and see if it makes any difference.

Uninstall or close unnecessary apps that run in the background (before running the game)
Make sure your PC is virus-free,
Use Windows update to update important system files
